Vertical World – America’s First Climbing Gym® is a unique training facility with specialized programs for youth and adults. Vertical World opened the very first rock climbing gym in America in 1987 on Elliott Avenue in Seattle. The gym was no more than rocks glued to painted plywood panels. Today, with more advanced facilities, the Vertical World accommodates a variety of custom group climbing needs, including: birthday parties, school and church groups, corporate events, private parties, and youth camps. They also have a variety of classes for both children and adults of all levels.
