A Closer Look

Watch as we breathe life back into the historic City Hospital Power Plant

The customer service at this place is top tier. I have to imagine if other places are a Hampton Inn, this place is the Bellagio. If you've always wanted to give climbing a shot, but have been too nervous... just get to this place.


I could say it's a great gym, but it's more like an awesome adult playground where cool kids go to hang out. The staff are upbeat, friendly, helpful, and most importantly, genuinely welcome to newcomers.


Learning how to climb at Climb So iLL brought me back from the dead. This place clears your mind. Come here for the endorphins, stay for the empowerment.


Upon walking in you will be greeted with friendly faces. I don't think anyone in this place is unhappy. As a newb, you will feel instantly comfortable. If you have never tried indoor climbing, this would be a great gym to start at.
