Rock Wall

Don't stand on the ground! Climb to the top on our indoor rockwall at the Tuckahoe YMCA.

Rock Wall

Reach for the stars – or lights!  At Tuckahoe’s Rock Climbing Wall, you can reach as high your arms will take you!  Perfect for full body exercise, a child’s birthday party or just getting out of your comfort zone, the Rock Wall will take you to new heights!


If you’re a YMCA member, use the rock wall just like you would any other YMCA service. Just pay the $6 belay if you need a staff member to belay you, or free if you have your own certified belayer  

Non-members, it’s just $3 a day for you to climb as much as you want!  If you need a staff to belay you, an additional fee of $6 per day will get you a YMCA staff to belay you while you climb.  Or bring a friend and belay each other.  (Both climbers must be belay certified by the YMCA.)


Monday – Thursday: 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Friday: CLOSED
Saturday & Sunday: 2 – 6 p.m.

Located at the Tuckahoe Family YMCA at 9211 Patterson Ave. Henrico, VA 23229
