Esplanade

The Olympic Park Esplanade—located just off Pie-IX boulevard—features two giant granite blocks for those who would like to try their hand at climbing. Each block is ideal for novice and expert climbers alike, featuring natural and fixed anchors with climbing grades ranging from V2 to V10+. An Android app is available to help climbers identify climbing routes for each rock.

Pack your crash pad, shoes, chalk, blanket, snacks, and drinks… and come climb these urban blocks!
