The REI Denver Flagship Climbing Pinnacle is a 47-foot monolith encompassing over 6,400 square feet of hand-sculpted rock surface. The pinnacle was modeled on the sandstone bluffs found throughout the Front Range of Colorado, much like the Flatirons of Boulder. The Pinnacle offers an incredible variety of climbing terrain. It contains 12 top-roped routes and 2 lead-climbing routes ranging in difficulty from 5.4-5.13 on the Yosemite Decimal System. The types of climbing features include: Hand-Cracks, Finger-Cracks, Pockets, Huecos, Lay-Back-Cracks, Flakes, Aretes, Dihedrals, Roofs, Overhangs and Slabs.
The REI Denver Flagship Climbing Pinnacle has many innovations never seen on an indoor rock-climbing wall of this size before. The hand and footholds are sculpted into the rock rather than bolted on the surface. This gives climbers a natural feel, much closer to a real outdoor climbing experience. The Pinnacle has routes specifically geared towards beginners; the routes are 20-24 feet tall and the hand and footholds are closer together.
REI has endeavored to create an experience that can be enjoyed by climbers of all ages and abilities. ENJOY THE CLIMB!
All climbers must complete and turn in an REI release of liability form prior to climbing. Minors (18 and under) must have this form signed by their legal guardian. (Notes, phone calls or altered REI forms are not acceptable.) Download the liability waiver. PDF (44k)
