The Front Climbing Club is Salt Lake City's premier bouldering gym, as well as the heart of the city's rock climbing community. Not only offering excellent indoor climbing, the gym has hosted countless competitions over the years - both professional and amateur. Beyond just rock climbing, it maintains a busy schedule of yoga classes and special events like photographer slide shows. These things, plus its Propulsion Pilates classes, cardio machines, and weight equipment, have made it Salt Lake's most beloved climbing and all-around fitness center.
Given the persistent success of this gym, it was only a matter of time until The Front Climbing Club would add another member to its Utah family - especially considering that the owner of The Front, Dustin Buckthal, is also co-owner of the premier climbing wall construction company, Vertical Solutions.
Freaturing the same excellent staples as Salt Lake's Front - excellent bouldering, yoga, fitness equimpent - The Front Ogden bumps it up a few notches by adding toprope and lead climbing to the list of activities. Located in a completely renovated warehouse, this gym has an ultra-modern, sexy look. The bouldering wall, with its sweeping curves and flowing, freestanding form, is surrounded by wall-to-ceiling windows. Its rope climbing area has attractively stained walls and often quite steep angles.
Whether you're an expert or a complete newbie, you'll find that The Front Ogden's variety of climbing wall heights and angles, as well as its other fitness offerings, make this an excellent place to train hard - or try something new. Shoe and harness rentals are available at the gym.
