Tallahassee Rock Gym Expansion

The Tallahassee Rock Gym gave me my start in climbing and was the driving force in my early climbing years.

Every climber has a similar story of  their early days...driving home late after climbing with forearms burning thinking of the problem or route that shut you down go after go.  Meeting up with friends at the gym, even in the middle of the Florida summer heat, to climb some nasty slopey boulder problems.  Taking my first whipper on the lead wall and getting right back on to finish the route.  I remember it like yesterday.  Working at the Tallahassee Rock Gym was a privilege and climbing there was a blast.  There was always an amazing sense of community and togetherness.  Climbers would help each other out with a spot or beta and everyone was so enthusiastic about climbing.  I started the FSU Climbing Club with two close friends, Dustin and Mike, and couldn't be happier about my time at FSU and the Tallahassee Rock Gym.  Going on climbing trips to Foster Falls and Obed as well as the Triple Crown are memories and experiences I will never forget.  This gym is genuine and I really do miss it.  I need to get back there sometime soon.

Support their cause and spread the word.  This gym is worth it!
