Climbing in Sacramento

Sacramento, settled amid the gently rolling hills of California's flat central valley, is no destination for cliff-seekers. Even so, the city is home to a strong climbing population. Intrepid rock climbers in the Sacramento area travel to the foothills of the nearby Sierra Nevada Mountains to scramble up local climbs of varying difficulties or navigate to the top of plastic-pocked walls in the area's several indoor climbing gyms.

 

Being in the great outdoors is wonderful, but indoor rock climbing has much to recommend it. Being in a climate-controlled environment can be more comfortable, particularly during blisteringly hot Sacramento summers, and during the cold, rainy and windy season as well. The exhilarating sport of rock climbing requires focus, as it is challenging mentally as well as physically. These facilities in and around the capital city have excellent rock walls, training classes and knowledgeable staff to help along the way.
