Product used: High Performance and SHOTRock
Known as the “routesetter’s canvas,” our High Performance climbing wall system is the product of choice for state-of-the-art climbing gyms.

Experienced climbing wall operators know the key to keeping their climbers enthusiastic is creative and ever-changing routes. High Performance walls are thoughtfully designed to highlight this aspect of operations. They provide a beautiful and functional “blank canvas” that can accommodate features like arches, overhangs, cracks and pinnacles or simply sweeping expanses that showcase your routes.

High Performance climbing wall systems are made of a thick, cementitious texture applied over sheets of interlocking OSB, a proven method of climbing wall construction. Supported by a steel framing system, the walls are extremely durable and can withstand a high volume of use. A t-nut density of at least 2 per sq ft and planar surfaces allow you to place more and bigger holds, allowing for the ultimate flexibility in routesetting.

SHOTRock was the ideal option to bring the outdoors inside. Hand sculpted and fully customizable, SHOTRock offers the beauty and realism of natural rock.
