The Original Los Angeles Climbing Gym

some info about us

The Los Angeles gym is a great oasis in the sometimes crowded bustle of the city of Los Angeles. With 10,000 square feet of climbing wall and a 1,500 square feet of fitness area, there is a lot to do for all ability levels. Our gym offers a large boulder area, 200+ top-rope routes, and a lead area with an arch that has routes up to 65 feet in length. If you want to train for the outside or get a workout in as you hide from the 405 traffic,  Rockreation Los Angeles has so much to offer you!


Rockreation has been a local resource for climbing training and education for over twenty years. Within our walls we have grown as the sport of rock climbing developed from a little-known activity to an internationally appreciated sport for kids and adults enjoyed at various levels of difficulty. We’re proud to be a part of the rock climbing roots in California and aim to incorporate our members into the rich history of climbing by giving them everything they need to thrive in this amazing sport.

Evolving Facility

To keep up with the demands of the ever-growing climbing community, we strive to keep our facility up-to-date; having newer and better cross-training equipment, new walls sets, various offerings in fitness and yoga or different and unique styles of route setting. We try to give our members something new to explore and a community in which they feel comfortable pushing their boundaries with all the right tools to train safely and effectively.

Experienced Staff

Our staff is comprised of  climbers who are motivated in providing a safe, fun and educational community that inspires others to become a part of the rock climbing legacy of California. They have a wide range of abilities across all disciplines and boast real-world climbing experience from all over the world. Many have learned the who, what, where, why and how of the climbing world through years of practice, training and torn cuticles. Want to know about climbing? Just ask. They love talking about it!

Jennifer Tanaka

General Manager, LA

Jennifer Tanaka, a California native, discovered rock climbing in her early 20s and has fallen in love with climbing over and over again. Rockreation will always be home base. Climbing outdoors at the local crags helps her to reconnect with nature. Red Rocks sandstone is her favorite place to climb outdoors and when not working or climbing, Jennifer studies martial arts at a local Kung Fu school. Jennifer is excited to be a part of the Rockreation Team, bringing climbing to the Westside for over 20 years.

Steve likes to keep people guessing. Each route he sets endeavors to be different than anything else on the wall and his style of routesetting is a combination of the training options and straightforward nature found in good commercial setting, and the flair and showiness of competition style. He has traveled all over the country setting competitions for youth and adult athletes, and has learned something from each experience. Steve loves setting routes that just jump off the wall, routes that you just HAVE to climb and he’s looking forward to being able to bring a product to Rockreation that is world class!
