Let Your Imagination Soar as You Scale our Rock Climbing Wall

Vivo’s climbing wall is the perfect “summit” for people who want to experience the thrill of scaling a mountain and bonding with friends at new heights. Whether you’re in a small group or braving a solo climb, get snug in your safety harnesses and start climbing.

Vivo offers a wide selection of climbing classes for all ages and abilities! Our climbing wall stands almost 30 feet tall and has a nine-foot bouldering area. Bring clean, indoor climbing or running shoes and we’ll supply the rest!
