Climbing tower

Indoor rock climbing is a fun way to get a complete workout. It boosts your cardiovascular system, increases flexibility, and improves muscular endurance and strength. Our 35-foot climbing tower has four sides with more than 10 climbing routes. Skill levels range from beginner to avid climber. We change the hand- and footholds regularly to create different climbing experiences.

The Professional Climbing Instructor Association has certified all Great River Health Fitness climbing tower staff members. Climbers must sign waivers before using the climbing tower for the first time. A parent or guardian’s signature is required for youth under 18 years old. You must renew your waiver annually. Forms are available at the Great River Health Fitness check-in desk. Please call 319-768-4191 for hours.
