About Rocknasium

About Us

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

We are one of the oldest climbing gyms in the country, established in 1992! Rocknasium’s main focus has always been on our community and 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 and still crankin’ out some awesome climbing.

Rocknasium is an old-school community climbing gym that offers awesome climbing and fun programs. We like to keep things simple and accessible and offer our knowledge, experience and expertise to all of our climbers. Climbing can be an awesome workout, mental challenge, and a fun escape from the everyday grind. Come learn how to climb at Rocknasium! Serving climbers in Davis, Sacramento and surrounding areas since 1992, Rocknasium has everything you need to get in shape, de-stress, and have fun. Come take a break from the everyday grind and flex those muscles on over 5000 square feet of awesome vertical terrain. And it’s not just climbing - we’ve got climbing classes, yoga classes, personal training, fitness equipment, youth programs, birthday parties, team building, a portable climbing wall and tons of cool events like the Reel Rock and Banff Film Fests, gear demos, clinics, competitions and our famous Tuesday Night Potluck!

As a small business built by and run by its co-owners Mark Leffler and Carter Schmeck, Rocknasium has a real “family” feel to it; for it’s employees and it’s customers. Rocknasium’s vision has always been to develop a fun and close-knit community where our customers are more than our source of income; they are our friends.
We will always strive to offer the highest quality service and keep our main focus on our community.

We pride ourselves on making our facility welcoming to people of all ages, abilities and motivations. We cater to beginners and to hard-core climbers alike - we have fun, we train hard and we climb a lot!  We maintain a supportive atmosphere where climbers are encouraged to learn, try hard and apply themselves to challenges. 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!

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.
