We re-opened the Climb Up OKC silos location to great fanfare on the morning of Saturday, March 5, 2016. The crowd in the parking lot was a good indicator of the excitement of climbers eager to check out the renovations. The place has been completely repainted, cleaned, holds scrubbed and routes reset. There is a brand new front entry, front check-in, pro-shop, and lounge room. We have a new training room and a new snack area. All the ropes are new, there are bunch of new holds, and other equipment. And while all of this has been accomplished in a mere 8 weeks of work we are still in the process of remodeling several key areas; the bouldering room is being completely redone, the training room is getting some new devices, and the kitchen area is getting a brand new drinking fountain - yes, folks - a new drinking fountain with bottle refill!
We have a couple of re-certified auto-belays in place and are in the process of adding additional units. And perhaps the biggest news, the roof is slated to be replaced this Spring, weather pending, of course.
We are on track to have not only more routes but the best routes that have ever been set in this facility. Plus, we are expanding our specialized training program to include cool stuff like multi-pitch climbing, rope ascending (aka jugging), and even aid climbing for those ready for advanced techniques.
We have just scratched the surface and what is to come. Climb Up OKC is on track to offer the highest level of professional climbing training in one of the most unique facilities in the country.
We now have multi-gym passes that allow you to climb at both our Norman location and the OKC silos. So you can boulder and climb the steeps to your heart's content and then build the endurance and experience the exposure of climbing at great heights in OKC.
Thank you for climbing with us.
