About Us & Our Philosophy
Rocknasium is an indoor rock climbing facility located 10 miles west of Sacramento in Davis, California.
One of the earliest climbing gyms to open in the country, Rocknasium celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2012. To celebrate we built an entirely new 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 climbing. We’ve got more topropes and more leading - including a huge new roof arch, free-hanging stalactite feature, AND a new 16 foot tall overhanging bouldering wall. Our climbing ranges in difficulty from super easy to super hard. We have a great pro-shop, a growing “garage” gym, a small cardio area, a dedicated yoga room, a nice hot shower and full climate control with both heat and air-conditioning!
Check in frequently to learn about our wide array of events and programs such as Tuesday night BB-Q’s, climbing competitions, film festivals, climbing teams and summer camps.
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, to a college student looking for a fun way to exercise, to a hard core climber training for serious competition, to even a married couple preparing for an assault on Yosemite’s El Capitan!
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 Rocknasium’s main focus has always been on our community and of course on our high-quality climbing.
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 goal is to set the foundation for that and also, 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, CRAGS - Climbing Resource Advocates for Greater Sacramento and CWA - Climbing Wall Association.
