Indoor Rock Climbing Club is starting up at the Rec Plex on October 10th from 7-9pm
Indoor Rock Climbing is one of Canada’s fastest growing sports and Garrison Petawawa’s Indoor Rock Climbing Club offers the best climbing in the Ottawa Valley! Twenty foot high walls, overhangs, textured walls and bouldering areas offer many diverse routes to challenge the beginner through the expert climber. No experience or equipment is required to try it out. Gear and instructions are available on-site during climbing nights.
We offer annual memberships to Military and Community Members as well as reasonable drop-in and group rates.
For group bookings, please contact PetawawaIRCC@gmail.com 3-4 weeks in advance or check us out through our Facebook page “Petawawa Indoor Rock Climbing Club.”
What is climbing about?
Rock Climbing is a great recreational activity that challenges your body and mind. Climbing is on an individual level and climbing accomplishments are a great reason to come out and give it a try. Climbing is also an excellent family activity that encourages teamwork.
Indoor vs. Outdoor Climbing?
Rock climbing is a year round sport that does not stop due to weather! Indoor climbing gives you the opportunity to practice or advance your skills in a safe and controlled environment. Outdoor climbers may take advantage of the indoor wall during the winter months to stay in shape. The movement, hand grips and body positions are the same as on real rock.
Am I strong enough?
Climbing is for all ages and physical abilities. With practice, your skill level will increase. With proper training and some practice, most climbers will be able to ascend the wall with little effort.
I’m afraid of heights!
This is a healthy fear, but we encourage you to try climbing at your comfort level. Some even learn to control their fears with climbing. There is no pressure to climb higher, you climb only as high you want.
What if I come by myself?
This is also a great place to meet new people! Lots of people come independently. Wednesday nights are a busy place so you will have no problem interacting with the many club members. Our club volunteers will also ensure to pair you up!
Don't forget your Community Access Card.
Military members and civilians are welcome to join.
