The most important aspect of any climbing gym is its routesetting and we don’t take that lightly.

We deliver world-class climbing because we have some of the best setters in the business! And while we turn over our gyms in 6-8 weeks, our focus is always on quality not quantity.

How do we do it?

WITH THE MOST HIGHLY CERTIFIED SETTING TEAM IN THE COUNTRY!

USA Climbing offers five levels of certification for routesetters and few setters ever advance beyond Level 2.  Fewer than ten setters in the country hold the ultimate distinction of L5 certification.  Our Director of Routesetting, Jeremy Hardin, is part of this elite group and the rest of our full-time team is certified at L4 and L2 respectively.

We are proud of their commitment to their craft, inspired by their lines, and humbled by their seemingly endless creativity.  And we encourage them to take time to set and teach around the country because we know they’ll come back home to Sportrock inspired to create the amazing routes we’re known for.
