(Capitol Hill location only)
Chimborazo! is the first simulated rock indoor climbing wall in Washington DC.! It was certainly designed with you in mind. Our attention to detail has created the city's most complete and full-service climbing wall, providing over 1,200 square feet of superb climbing excitement under one roof. Additionally, we have a climbing section that is nearly 40 feet high, making this wall competitive with the "climbing only" facilities.
If you already know the basics of climbing and you are ready to go we will quickly check you out.
Time: Anytime (with available staff).
