We are just like you. No, really. We started as passionate rock climbers who were excited about the community and wanted to do everything we could to preserve and advance it. But we had an idea focused on doing something differently. We didn’t mean to set out and build the nation’s leading indoor climbing gym company; it was simply the result of not finding a company to build what we wanted to build. So we set out to do it ourselves. Apparently people liked what we had to show, because by word of mouth, people sought us out to do what we already proved we could: separate Vertical Solutions indoor climbing gyms from the rest of the accepted "norm."
We’ve been where you are, at this very moment. We’ve stood in your shoes and faced the challenges you face. And we are the type of company that will go to great lengths to secure your business success.
We are the only climbing wall builder in the industry that can deliver everything you need from soup to nuts, none of which will be the same as other projects found elswhere. This means you can have one point of contact through the entire process, from getting funded, to building the gym we design with you, to training your staff for your grand opening and running a comp. We do this, so we can facilitate your success as a business owner from all angles, and to align your business with the community you are trying to reach. We don’t want to leave any holes in your plan, and as owner/operators of multiple climbing gyms, we can deliver an authentic formula for a comprehensive winning strategy. No one else can provide all of this attention to detail and craftsmanship, let alone as a turn-key solution. We deliver on your vision without wavering.
We do things differently than a lot of our competitors, and as a result, we are not a lot of things that they are. First of all, we pride ourselves on not being imported. We employ hard working Americans that are meticulous, and strive to deliver the best quality possible. So we aren’t mass produced, and as a result we aren’t a "one-size" solution that targets a specific type of climbing audience; we design and create climbing spaces that are for all outdoor enthusiasts and the lifestyles they lead. We aren’t the type of business that will give you the same product that we gave another client because we aren’t interested in taking on projects that aren’t authentic. We aren’t just going to sell you a climbing wall either, because we provide so much more. We typically aren’t the cheapest option and we won’t conceal that by bringing you in with a low bid and then raising the price throughout the project or rush jobs to increase our profitability. Most important, we aren’t willing to jeopardize your business success by delivering anything short of phenomenal.
