San Juan Island’s
Climbing Gym


Climb San Juan is a small, beginner-friendly gym with 6 sets of top-ropes and 3 aerial silks built by someone who loves island life and rock climbing. The inspiration was to bring more recreational opportunities and community space to the San Juan Islands. Climbing provides locals and visitors a fun, healthy, and engaging activity. Climb San Juan opened its doors in June of 2021.

The climbing area resides within a separate business: The Rec. This is walkable from the ferry terminal but parking is also available near that area. Showers at the The Rec are included with climbing memberships while after-hours access and sauna/hot tub are available to add to a climbing membership!

In a nutshell…

The climbing area is available for drop ins the majority of its open hours, with the exceptions being private parties and certain classes like Youth Class or Ladies Night. All the climbing gear is available to rent to start your climbing journey. Day pass, membership, and punch card options are available for those who want to come in regularly or spontaneously. Anyone is welcome to drop in and try it out, and if you’re new, there are signs posted to help you get an idea of how it all works. If you’re looking to get some tips, classes are also available too!
