Stone Garden Rock Climbing

Attraction | "Stone Gardens"

Grunge, looks sketch on the outside, located in Ballard near the Ballard locks. 90s music playing while everyone is 'doing' their own thing-climbing. Great place to go on a rainy day or if you need to practice your climbing. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
