For years Salt Lake City climbers have been pushing their limits in the Wasatch. As local climbers began to reach their physical limits, they developed circuits and training techniques that allowed them to develop and maintain the fitness needed to climb harder and harder routes. It wasn’t long before some climbers started to build tools and training walls that provided opportunities to stay fit when the weather was poor or time didn’t allow for enough climbing. This timeline is a testament and tribute to the past, present and future climbing walls in the Salt Lake area. We hope you enjoy reading about the great gyms that have graced Salt Lake over the years and helped to pave the way for our climbing gyms of today.
