For those who prefer to climb indoor, check out the Boulder Yard, a relatively new rock climbing facility. Boulder Yard attempts to emulate rock climbing outside and offers 3,000 square feet of climbing opportunities.
Boulder Yard offers lessons for children as well as a competitive team for junior rock climbers to compete in rock climbing competitions.
