The current trend in climbing gym design is for large flat wood or fiberglas panels that bring a clean aesthetic and allows for endless creative options for routesetters. But a new gym in Florida, with the help of Eldorado Walls, is bringing back “real rock” climbing to the indoor environment.
The owners wanted to bring the feel of classic climbing areas like granite from Yosemite, phonolite porphyry of Devil’s Tower and sandstone of Red River Gorge to the climbers of Florida. Located near Fort Lauderdale, Project Rock is now Florida’s biggest gym with 4,000 sq ft of realistic rock terrain and 14,000 sq ft of smooth High Performance walls. There’s even a unique 60 foot stalactite/stalagmite feature.
Eldorado just completed 18,000 sq ft of climbing for the largest climbing gym in Florida, ProjectRock. 4,000 sq ft of rock realistic terrain that looks and climbs like Devil's Tower, Yosemite, and the Red River Gorge. 14,000 sq ft of smooth High Performance walls that soar up to 60'! Thanks ProjectRock for sharing the video.
