2. Hoosier Heights – Indianapolis
Wall Size: 33,000 sq.ft.
Location: Indianapolis, Indiana
Wall Builder: Expansion by Entre Prises
Just like the #1 spot on the list Hoosier Heights earned a spot on the list after an extensive expansion. First built by Climb Time, the gym originally featured only 11,000 sq. ft. of climbing. Then in 2012 Hoosier Heights bought the gym and hired Entre Prises to build a massive 22,000 square foot lead wall and bouldering area, effectively doubling the size of the gym.
The gym has great open space, a rarity in most climbing gyms, and has a remarkable feature they call the “Snake”, which is a high ball bouldering wall that overhangs a foam pit. The gym also has a 10 meter speed wall which they hope will boost their chances of hosting national competitions.
