Vertical Adventures Training Center (VATC or just ‘The Training Center’) is VA’s original location and has operated as a climbing gym since 1994. When VA’s new facility opened in 2014, we converted this space into a gym wholly dedicated to youth training and family recreation. The Training Center is mostly bouldering (climbing without ropes) with a few rope routes that we use to teach rope management and climbing. Read more
Fantastic climbing gym that has a variety of opportunities for climbers of all experience levels. Their dedication to teaching everyone proper technique and safety makes me happy to know that the climbers I meet at the crag from Columbus are going to be well educated and well prepared. One of my favorite things about VA is their dedication to diversity and our local community: events are hosted that engage underrepresented groups and small businesses throughout our lovely city....it's truly a fantastic gym to be a part of!
I have never had a bad time here. Good facility, good staff, good patrons. Can't recommend this place enough!
They have promoted climbing in Columbus for many years, making it safe and fun for everyone including children and novices.
