CIBA Climbing Gym’s mission is to provide patrons of all ages a fun, controlled climbing gym environment in which to exercise, socialize, and gain new climbing skills. The owners knew they had the community support to justify their vision, as their community is small, but highly focused on climbing. It was important that they not loose sight of the goals, and planned the size of their project and climbing walls appropriately without breaking the bank to accomplish it. They focus on the fundamentals and sharing the joy of climbing with individuals of all ages and skill levels so one main climbing wall area had to suit a mixture of climbing styles. MLM geometric wood walls were the choice with custom branding colors and finishes that matched the rest of the facility for a coordinated approach. CIBA is the result of what happens when you know your market intimately, and deliver everything they are asking for in a dedicated climbing facility. Proof positive that you don’t need an extra large facility to be successful and have a happy clientele.
CIBA Indoor Climbing Wall: When CIBA set out to build a dedicated indoor climbing gym community for their small market in Sierra Vista, AZ, they needed to do so with the right project scope and budget. So they decided to have a clean and efficient MLM design and climbing wall construction that incorporated a paint motif complimenting the geometric style as well as the surrounding mountain landscape.

CIBA Indoor Climbing Wall: Going with a smaller climbing gym doesn’t mean it can’t be interesting for your climbers. This MLM-based climbing wall design delivers a ton of variety, thanks to the natural cave designed into the center of the wall from the adjacent walls of their building.
CIBA Indoor Climbing Wall: A view from the right hand side that gives you more perspective on how much climbing they actually packed into this gym. Because they worked with us on designing a climbing cave in the center, it really wound up adding a ton of terrain to the mix and making the rock climbing gym space feel much bigger overall.
CIBA Indoor Climbing Wall: Packing in a lot of terrain in for such a small area means you have to be sure you have a great bouldering wall flooring system to arrest your climbers safely while falling. This side view shows the scale of the project and the varying levels of overhung geometric MLM climbing walls incorporated, as well as how big the Habit bouldering floor pad system is.
CIBA Indoor Climbing Wall: Lots of room for little ones to send it here! Indoor rock climbing gyms often separate the children’s area for climbing but CIBA integrates it fully with the adult routes so they can start learning from the best on day one at their climbing gym.
