About Us

Located in a renovated old ice house in the heart of Athens, Georgia, Active Climbing is glad to bring you one of the coolest places around. With state of the art climbing walls plus one of the best birthday party rooms in the Southeast, Active Climbing is sure to be your next addiction. Check out some photos of our gym & climbers!

Active Climbing is Athens' first indoor climbing gym, and one of the best in the region. We are dedicated to bouldering, indoor rock climbing, fitness, birthday parties and much much more! Come explore and have fun on spectacular bouldering routes, up to 20 feet high, with forms that will blow you away, and terrain you'll only find at Pro Competitions.

The facilities also feature 20-foot tall roped walls (both lead and top rope), a 40-foot long roof traverse, soon to be exercise and training equipment and padded flooring with plenty of crash pads (more than enough to cure you from being afraid of falling!)

We came here for a climbing competition and it was the most unique experience we have had in 3 years of competitive climbing. They had colored the walls with blacklight paint and covered all the windows for a Halloween-themed climbing competition. It was very creative and a great experience. Thank you!

Primarily a bouldering gym. Great routes and the reset comps are always a blast

Great place! Very clean, SUPER fun climbing walls (especially with the giant troll!) and slides for kids, and the bouldering room is amazing. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Definitely would recommend (actually already have) to friends! Maaaaaaybe we will even have our kiddo's next bday party there. Our first visit was that much fun! The kids asked to go back as soon as they woke up the next morning.
