Climbing facility opening in Mooresville in December

An new indoor climbing facility in Mooresville will open around Christmas, and the public will get a sneak peak of the facility’s offerings this weekend.

Construction on Cliff Hangers began earlier this week at 326 Oates Road, next to the Lake Norman Tennis Center.

Managing partners Kris and Keith Johnson, who are brothers, will have a Cliff Hangers tent at Mooresville’s Race City Festival May 16 to offer interested customers an introduction to the facility, as well as the opportunity to register for inaugural discounted memberships and a chance to win a membership.

The three-level facility will feature 50-foot climbing walls, a designated children’s climbing section, a workout area including a yoga studio, cafe, fireplace, lounge area and meeting rooms, the company said in a statement.

The facility will host climbing leagues, competitive events, birthday parties, organizational team-building exercises and other community events.

“We are thrilled that we are able to bring indoor rock climbing to Lake Norman,” Keith Johnson said in a statement. “This project is an incredible facility and we are excited to build it and welcome our community to enjoy rock climbing and active lifestyles.”
