Live Fit

Unlike most other sports, rock climbing develops the strength of your entire body and teaches your muscles to work together in synergy. It corrects unbalanced, weak musculature in the body that forms from sports that isolate specific muscle groups (i.e. weight lifting). Using your brain to place your hands and feet so that your muscles can do their job.

Live Fun

Our facility has a great atmosphere to bring the whole family to enjoy a night out of the house, or grab some of your friends for some much need hang time. You can even work out some stress and come alone for a few hours.

Whatever your reasons for getting to the walls, we’re sure you’ll be more than satisfied.

Live Smart

Rock climbing is good for the body as well as the mind. When you come to our walls you will find yourself navigating through the routes like a puzzle, increasing your ability to make decisions quickly and rationally based on your body’s capabilities. Rather than just your brain, though, it’s your entire body, soul and mind that is put to the test. Will you pass it?

Live Safe

As the sport of artificial rock wall climbing grows, there is a stronger need for standards and tolerances, especially in the areas of safety and wall construction. We have been operating as an indoor rock climbing facility since November of 1996 and follow the CWIG standards for how a rock wall should be built with anchors and lines that will take a 4000 lb weight.

Our History

Once upon a time, the building at the corner of Cass and Clay Streets was a decrepit, abandoned church. With the application of a lot of vision, love, and hard work, it is once again a thriving gathering place in the heart of Dayton’s Oregon Distict. Witness some of that transformation in this “Before and After” video!


Urban Krag was recently featured on the local television program “Our Ohio“. Here’s a copy of that feature, used with permission:
