A note to our customers. We want to thank ALL of you for your support these last few days as Climbmax Climbing was undergoing yet another amazing expansion at our River Arts location. I know that it may have been frustrating not knowing all the details but unfortunately we were only able to release the information as we got it. From the actual start date to the actual finish date of construction ... we really did not have great insight provided to us from the wall company. SOOOOOOO THANK YOU for your patience and support ... We hope you all liked all of the time our route setters put into the Downtown location to build those excellent routes .... for YOU .... and hope you will frequently return there.
Lastly, a BIG shout out to my amazing staff .... they all worked SO hard to make a cleaner, more beautiful, more climbable, AND more excellent place for our customers. We know you will love it ! (as well as the new surprises still to come !)
Please know that Climbmax Climbing is a community based and locally owned gym .... this means ... That we .... I ... try daily to offer the very best service and facility for you ... our customers, as possible. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT ! Stuart
