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 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 a full-service community climbing gym. We offer simple and accessible climbing and fun programs and offer our knowledge, experience and expertise to all of our climbers. Climbing is an awesome workout, great mental challenge, and a fun escape from the everyday grind. Rocknasium has been serving climbers in Davis, Sacramento and surrounding areas since 1992, making us one of the oldest climbing gyms in the country and one of the few to succeed for this long! Rocknasium has everything you need to get in shape, de-stress, and have fun with over 5000 square feet of awesome vertical terrain. Climbing is what anchors us - but we’ve got climbing, yoga, pole fitness and pilates classes, personal training, group fitness programs, weightlifting and cardio equipment, youth programs, birthday parties, team building, and tons of cool events like the Reel Rock and Banff Film Fests, gear demos, clinics, parties and social events, climbing 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. Our high-quality climbing and comprehensive programs allow us to take our community on an adventure of fitness, fun, and exploration.  We are proud of what we have created and for many years to come, Rocknasium will continue to cultivate an awesome community climbing environment!

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.


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