The Rocky Mountain Climbing Centre: Coming soon to Crestmont West
February 9, 2018 | by QualicoCommunities
Located off highway 1 on the west side of Calgary, Crestmont West is perfectly poised to give its residents the perfect balance of work and play. For those residents that are looking to add a little bit more activity, it is going to get a whole lot easier this spring as one of Canada’s fastest growing pastimes will get a new location beside Crestmont West.
The Calgary Climbing Centre already has three locations throughout the city of Calgary; but now they are getting ready to open their fourth! Set to open near the end of February, the Calgary Climbing Centre’s Rocky Mountain location is sure to delight the active adventure enthusiast in everyone. With walls up to 65 feet high, the 25,000 square foot facility is unlike any other in the Calgary area.
Located just west of Canada Olympic Park on West Valley Road, this amazing new Olympic-calibre facility is set to become the training grounds for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, where climbing has officially been added to the list of summer Olympic sports. A project that has been seven years in the making, the anticipation around the project has been building for everyone from the Olympic-level athlete to the weekend climbing enthusiast.
This cutting-edge facility has something for everyone with even the slightest interest in climbing. The CCC’s Rocky Mountain location will have bouldering, speed climbing, a climb park, a pro-shop, a moon wall, a community bulletin board and a unique outdoor climbing wall on the side of the building. The facility will be just the second climbing centre in Canada to have an outdoor climbing wall, following “Allez Up” in Montreal.
Even for non-climbers, it is hard not to be in awe of the amazing facility. From the outdoor wall to the indoor design, the architecture of the CCC’s next climbing centre is absolutely breathtaking. With 1 in 10 Calgarians having already been exposed to climbing, adding a new facility of this stature to the city is likely to help the sport grow even more. To stay up to date on the progress of the climbing centre, or to learn more about the facility as it becomes available, check out their website here.
