Introducing the latest feature at the Rec Center: the AquaClimb rock wall.

Situated over the deep end of the Rec Center pool, the AquaClimb wall is unlike any rock wall you've climbed before. No harness or bungee cord needed -- when you fall, you fall into the water! It's a challenging new experience...for those who dare to try it.
