Rock Climbing

The JCC's indoor rock wall measures 20 feet wide by 19 feet high, creating a 358 square foot wall that contains five different routes, a bouldering section and 186 different rock shapes. A mostly individual sport, rock climbing is highly technical and challenging activity that requires unique strength, endurance, flexibility and mental focus.
