Indoor rock climbing has become an incredibly popular mainstream sport and will soon be featured in the Olympic Games. Nearly every state in the nation is now home to at least one rock climbing gym, and all forecasts predict the sport will only continue to grow. We intend to grow with it!

Like all industries, there are some who do it poorly, some who do it well, and some who do it best. Vertical Solutions, the nation’s largest domestic climbing wall manufacturer, does it best. We build indoor climbing walls throughout the country with distinctive materials that set us apart from (and above) the competition, and we have set the industry standard for design and aesthetics.

VS also produces a full fleet of climbing holds through PROXY Production – which is harder than it sounds. There are many competitors in this realm as indoor climbers are very particular about the plastic they pull on! PROXY has adapted and evolved to stay competitive and needs a team willing to do the same.
