We are very excited to release the CWA’s 2018 Indoor Climbing Industry Report, which will become available in August, 2018. The report focuses on 3 major areas of commercial climbing businesses: operations, finance, and membership. Working with our research partner, Campbell Rinker, we have gained insights into operational practices, membership offerings, areas of growth, financial performance, the size of the overall commercial climbing market, and more.


The report’s findings are based on a survey of commercial climbing gyms in the United States and Canada, which was fielded from March 15 to April 30, 2018. The survey captured data about these businesses from 2017. 81 companies submitted their information, 76 of which were complete entries, and these entries represent a total of 123 facilities.


The 2018 Indoor Climbing Industry Report is a valuable resource that, for the first time ever, has quantified many important areas of the indoor climbing industry. Facility owners and employees will benefit from newly-established benchmarks, which are critical in understanding your individual performance in relation to the industry overall. Manufacturers and vendors who serve the industry will have new data to help them understand their customers. Additionally, those looking to enter into the industry will find a wealth of information for informed decision-making.


The study's participants can expect to receive access to an interactive online portal before we release the written report in August. Information regarding customized reports comparing individual data to industry benchmarks will be available soon. If you have questions, please reach out to the CWA's Marketing & Communications Manager, Laura Allured.
