We are on a mission to create an outstanding climbing facility that helps climbers of all abilities train to become their best.
The River holds the key to climbing and training right in the middle of Asheville. Our indoor and outdoor climbing facilities offer bouldering, top-rope, and lead-climbing accessible to all skill levels. Indoor climbing and training space lets you escape the mountains when the weather turns bad.
You’ll find weight training equipment, multiple training boards including a kilter board, and routes that are regularly reset so that climbers can always come in and climb new routes.
