From Press Release:
Reno-Tahoe residents will soon have a new and extraordinary place to get fit and have fun. Mesa Rim Climbing & Fitness Center, which operates three indoor climbing facilities in Southern California, held a groundbreaking ceremony for their new 24,000 square foot Reno location on November 2nd. The 5-story building being constructed on Harvard Way, near downtown Reno, is expected to open doors in the summer of 2017.
Mesa Rim is reinventing the idea of a fitness center by bringing together a unique and vibrant combination of climbing, traditional fitness, and social spaces all under one roof. The custom designed facility will feature 30 to 50 foot tall indoor climbing walls designed for beginners and expert climbers alike, with lead climbing, top rope climbing and a large bouldering area. In addition to the diverse climbing terrain, Mesa Rim will feature a dedicated studio-quality yoga studio, a full service fitness area with weights and cardio equipment, spa quality locker rooms, and a sauna. The facility also boasts a spacious lounge and communal workspace that opens to an outdoor deck with views of Mt. Rose.
The Mesa Rim team, in conjunction with local investors, has been steadily working on this project for almost two years and is pleased to bring Mesa Rim’s unique brand of professionally operated climbing and fitness centers to the climbers and outdoor enthusiasts of Reno. “For years the rock climbers of Reno have been hoping for a facility of this size and quality,” said Ian Mcintosh, President of Mesa Rim. “We couldn’t be more happy to be opening a world class indoor climbing facility in this town, but more importantly we are excited to create a community space that brings friends and family together and inspires individuals to challenge themselves both mentally and physically.”
