Climbing Wall

Explore greater peaks by scaling the Ackerman Alps.

Ackerman SFC members receive complimentary access to the Ackerman Alps – our two 30-foot climbing rocks and a bouldering wall – equipped with nine top ropes and four auto-belay system. Climbing is an excellent low-impact sport for all ages. It helps develop all muscle groups from the back and shoulders, to legs, arms, and even fingers. Stretching and reaching for holds improves flexibility and agility, allowing challengers to conquer new heights!

Adult/Tot Open Climb Drop-in
