Rock climbing will soon be a year round activity in Twin Falls.

The Gemstone Climbing Center is set to open in August. The outer walls are starting to go up and in the next few weeks they plan on starting the interior walls which are coming in from Bulgaria. This is good news to see the building progress as it is. It was over 2 years ago that we first heard about the project and a little less than a year ago that they broke ground and started the construction.

Gemstone has done a good job of getting out in the eye of the public to promote the upcoming grand opening. They had an impressive float during Western Days and have taken part in a few other community events. Once open the facility will offer climbing, yoga, hot yoga, pilates, cardio and fitness training, adult and youth climbing classes, and competitions.

The climbing center will be open 7 days a week and have equipment rentals. Stay up to date on construction progress on their Facebook page.
