Is there anyone interested in indoor climbing in the Abbotsford/ Langley area. I realize between work, search and rescue and dog training, I am limited for time, but would like to go once in a while. Drop me a line.... [email protected]

Vertical Reality is pretty good. Its not big but its better than The Rock House in Richmond which is where i usually climb. The key with all of these places is to find a time when they don't have birthday parties running. Squealing 11 year old girls are right up there with bear bells for me.

Maybe you should rent your's out (11 year old girl) to hikers who are worried about bears!

I hear there is a new place that just opened in Coquitlam as well. When this darn knee heals up I'll be checking it out. I think it will be a good way to rebuild the strenght for the trail.I stopped going to the Rock House in Richmond because of
A) The drive
B) 11 year old girls

No trail is long with good company.

Yeah,I concur,
My daughter's 9th b-day party was at the Edge in North Van with 7 or 8 of the loudest squealers you ever heard.Funny thing was that there was another group of 12 year old girls and they were far more the "drama queens"than our group was.By the way,I was in CMS at Coquitlam Centre and I noticed they've got a wall too...

Yah, that is the new Cliffhanger, close relative to the one in Vancouver. I haven't climbed there yet, but I hear that they use a cement type surface for their walls, so its a bit unforgiving for scrapes and sole wear.

I have climbed a bunch of times at the Rock Wall in Maple Ridge (formerly Rockreation). Not as big as some gyms, but reasonably priced and the owners/operators are pretty friendly.

My 14 year old brother has been to Cliffhanger, but he still seems to prefer the Rock Wall as well. Unfortunately, my brother is away for a week, so I can't go climbing with him for a while. I'm going into withdrawl now from lack of climbing!

Well, I finally had a chance to try Cliffhanger this weekend. Nice place. Its probably about 30 - 50% higher than the Rock wall, so it definitely works the endurance more. They had some pretty cool climbs there, with lots of routes, and a pretty decent bouldering wall. The surface definitely is more unforgiving, though.

There's also Monkey Mountain in Abottsford, it's the only indoor climbing gym I have been to.

The gym in Coquitlam is the best one around. It still doesn't even come close to the real thing though.
