About This Organizer

Our facility is located in the historic grain silos of old Downtown Carrollton, Texas, just north of Downtown Dallas. Inside a world of adventure possibilities awaits- with the world’s tallest indoor climbing routes, a map/book room, lounge area, classroom, and strength and conditioning equipment, we have everything you need to make your next adventure happen.
If you are serious about outdoor adventure (or you want to be) this is the place for you. We are not a “climbing gym” in the traditional sense- we consider our facility a place to train for outdoor adventure sports and activities. For this reason everything we do is just like we would do in the outdoors. We’ll teach you the same techniques we use outside. And if you’ve never climbed outside before, this is a great place to make the transition!
We offer way more than climbing, too. With our amazing trips, classes, and sense of community, if you are interested in outdoor adventure you are sure to find a place here. So check out all our info here on the site, call us at 972-446-0105 if you have any questions, be sure to check out and like our FACEBOOK page to stay up to date on everything that goes on here, and of course you can always come in and say hi!
