Format: Redpoint
(Each route has a different level of difficulty and a unique point value commensurate to the level of difficulty. Points are gained only if the route is completed. The basic strategy for the red point is to warm up on easy climbs. After warming up you are ready to peak on the hardest climb you are capable of sending. Here strategy is important. You must correctly evaluate the most difficult climb you are capable of completing. If you can not complete a climb, you may continue to try. However, as you continue to work the climb, your endurance and strength diminish. Therefore, many climbers use the strategy to attempt a climb only twice until they complete the mandatory number of climbs. Then difficult climbs are re-attempted in an effort to improve the score. Competitors will verify and initial each other's score cards.)

Spring 2018 Free Climb

It's that time of the year again! Friday, January 19th 2018, from 6-11pm, we want everyone to come on down to the gym to climb and use our gear for FREE! We love that the community of Searcy is so supportive of us. We would love to have more people who enjoy rock climbing as much as we do. Come join the festivities!

Volunteers Needed!

Zion Climbing Center is a nonprofit organization. We are incredibly blessed to have the support of our community and college students that come from all over the country. The only way we are able to stay up and running is because of our regular customers and the work of our volunteers. Our volunteers work and study during the day and then work at least one shift every week. They have a passion for rock climbing and for the community of Searcy, and they strive for bonding relationships and to share the love of the sport and the love of Christ. Every year, we lose volunteers to graduation (a bitter-sweet time for all of us), and we are always looking for new people! If you are interested in volunteering with  us, we would love to work with you!
