Located right outside downtown Jacksonville, The Edge Rock Gym is a vast and impressive indoor climbing facility that offers fun and fitness for kids (and adults) of all ages.
Rock climbing is a great way for kids to build confidence while getting some exercise at the same time. The Edge Rock Gym is truly something kids of all ages can enjoy. They have harnesses that can fit kids as young as 2, and encourage little ones to go at their own pace.
One of the great things about The Edge Rock Gym is that they provide all the gear you need for a successful climb. Closed toe shoes are required (absolutely no flip flops) and your climbing harness is included in your basic day price. You can rent additional equipment such as climbing shoes and chalk, but it’s not necessary.
The other thing parents will love about The Edge Rock Gym is that it requires absolutely no skill to help your child have a great climb. Their automated climbing system requires parents to clip kids under 14 in, but then you can sit back and watch them scale the climbing wall. You don’t need to hold the rope or make sure they don’t fall.
When they’re done, you just clip the rope back to the anchor and help them choose another route. It’s so easy and so much fun to watch the kids try harder climbs as they grow more and more confident.
In addition to open climb times, The Edge Rock Gym offers birthday parties, youth classes, monthly memberships, and more! We love spending a few hours at The Edge Rock Gym, be sure to check it out next time you’re looking for something to do.
