About Rocknasium

About Us

Rocknasium is an indoor rock climbing facility located 10 miles west of Sacramento in Davis, California.

As one of the earlier climbing gyms in the country Rocknasium’s main focus has always been on our community and of course on our climbing.  Rocknasium celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2012 and to celebrate we built an entirely new & bigger gym just a couple of doors down from the original gym. We’re bigger, better, steeper and more modern with over 5000+ square feet of awesome climbing. We’ve got:

    —a huge roof arch and freehanging stalactite feature

    —a 16 foot tall overhanging bouldering wall

    —a great pro-shop

    —a growing “garage” gym & cardio area

    —a dedicated yoga room

    —a nice hot shower

    —and full climate control with both heat and air-conditioning!

As a small business built by and run by its co-owners Mark Leffler and Carter Schmeck, for over 20 years Rocknasium has had the “family” feel to it; for it’s employees and it’s customers. Come join us!”

Prices and hours are as affordable and awesome as always. Check our website, blog, and Facebook for more information and updates on programs and events.

Our Philosophy:

We pride ourselves on making our facility welcoming to people of all ages, abilities and motivations-from a toddler starting to experiment with coordination, to a ten year old’s climbing birthday party, or a college student looking for a fun way to exercise. We cater to beginners and to hard-core climbers alike - we have fun, we train hard and we climb a lot!

Since 1992 it has been Rocknasium’s vision to develop a fun and close-knit community where our customers are more than our source of income; they are our friends.
We have and will always strive to offer the highest quality in service and of our facility to every customer. As one of the earlier climbing gyms in the country we learned early that Rocknasium’s main focus should always be on our community.

For children, we maintain a supportive atmosphere where they are encouraged to expend their (endless) energy in a positive way. From this simple yet powerful model have come world-class climbers whose passion for climbing has led them to travel the globe extensively, in the process learning about diverse cultures and ways of life.

Climbing is a daunting sport with many unknowns; it requires immense focus, confidence and self-discipline.  Our high-quality climbing and comprehensive programs allow us to take our community on an adventure of fitness, fun, and exploration. Our goal is to assist our customers along their path within the shelter of our facility.  We are proud of what we have helped create, for both for children and adults. For many years to come, Rocknasium will continue to cultivate an environment from which enjoyment, ability and confidence grow!

Rocknasium is proud to support the American Alpine Club, Access Fund, CRAGS - Climbing Resource Advocates for Greater Sacramento and CWA - Climbing Wall Association.
