Climbing walls on the rise in Colorado — but not where you’d think

While rock-climbing remains a popular Colorado pastime, the demand for developed walls is on the rise at ski areas and within a number of other industries, according to Eldorado Climbing Walls company.

“It’s absolutely booming,” Eldorado director of sales and marketing Christina Frain said of the statewide climbing wall scene.

Recreation centers, climbing gyms, colleges and universities are expected clientele, Frain said. But in the past five years, newer markets — apartment and condominium complexes, public schools, ski areas and corporate offices — “have suddenly grasped onto climbing walls.”

Google, for example, contracted Eldorado to install a third climbing wall at its new campus in Boulder.
