City's Best Atlanta Playtime Spots for Atlanta's Adults — Atlanta Rocks! Intown: For many adults a favorite past time as a child was climbing on anything and everything you could get your feet on. At Atlanta Rocks! feel free to get your climb on without having to worry about a harsh scolding from mom or dad. It's an indoor playground for all ages.
Climbing is a natural instinct that all of us share. You start to develop it as a child as you climb trees and fences, says Atlanta Rocks! general manager David Turrentine. But as an adult we might get arrested if we start hanging out in trees!
So Atlanta Rocks! is a special place where big kids"can basically let loose and enjoy a unique experience.
Atlanta Rocks! has proudly served the community of climbers, without regard to race, sex, religion, creed, color, nationality, disability, or sexual orientation, since 1994. To celebrate Black History Month, we thought Atlanta Rocks! climbers might be interested in this profile on AR Climber Dexter Gilbert. Enjoy!
Dexter Gilbert, 40, of Atlanta, is just like any other rock climber that you might see scaling the walls at Atlanta Rocks! Indoor Rock Climbing Gym in Midtown, Atlanta. He’s into sports and motivated by a desire to seek new challenges. But, for Gilbert, climbing, in his own words, is “about four times as hard,” as it is for most other climbers. To the casual observer, it’s not instantly obvious why that’s so. At six-feet tall, with an athletic build, Gilbert seems like he would be made for climbing. And then you notice that Gilbert is blind.
Gilbert, who lost his sight at the age of six, first became interested in climbing while watching a gentleman talk about his experiences climbing Mount Everest on the Oprah show. “I did research on him and decided I wanted to try it, which led me to Atlanta Rocks!,” Gilbert says matter-of-factly.
At Atlanta Rocks! Gilbert didn’t get any special treatment because of his disability. He was required to pass the same belay test and attend the same introductory class as sighted climbers. When asked about the reaction at Atlanta Rocks! when he walked in the door, Gilbert — who attended the Intro Class with a friend — notes that they “handled it well.”
Peter Bloeme, Atlanta Rocks! Co-founder, recalls the first time he saw Gilbert walk in the gym. “My first thought was that he must really be lost,” Bloeme says with a smile, “but then he approached the counter to check in. I pulled up his record on the computer and, sure enough, he was approved to climb and belay. After watching him climb, I was impressed at how deliberately and gracefully he moved despite not being able to see the holds he was reaching for.”

Each year, boys and girls from all around Atlanta try out for the Atlanta Rocks! Youth Climbing team. Of those, a select group is chosen ranging in age from 9 to 17 to represent Atlanta Rocks in the competitive youth climbing world. When we first introduced the idea to our customers in 1995, we knew of no other organized teams in the United States. Many of our youth team members have competed nationally since then. We have had several members rank in the top 10 in their age group and one national champion. (more)
Climbing builds self confidence and enhances both teamwork and self-reliance. Climbers learn to control their bodies and solve complex physical challenges by using their brains as well as their muscles. The social and athletic skills acquired through climbing will provide a lifetime of enjoyment. Youngsters are supervised by Atlanta Rocks! staff and will have ample time to develop friendships with other School of Rocks climbers. Parents are encouraged to relax in the gym, or get some work done, while their kids climb (Free Wi-Fi). more...
