There are so many interesting activities in the Dayton area that it can be hard to decide what to do in your free time. If you’ve searched through the options and nothing caught your eye, maybe you’d like something a little more adventurous. You might not think an old church building could be hiding something special, but I doubt most churches look like Urban Krag.

Urban Krag is an indoor rock climbing arena set up inside a renovated former church in the Oregon District. If you’ve never been rock climbing before, you might want to move it to the number one spot on your to-do list. Urban Krag supports all levels of climbers and offers the necessary gear to get started. You can go with a group of friends, by yourself, or with family.

Before you can start climbing the walls – in the best way possible – the proprietors of the establishment need to make sure you’re safe while you do it. During your first visit, you’ll be given a safety lesson that covers all protocols and procedures. There is a small charge associated with this 30-minute lesson, but safety must be a priority for both climbers and instructors.

Once you complete this lesson and sign the waiver, you’re ready to start your rock climbing journey! Ask your instructor or fellow climbers what paths they might recommend for your skill level.

Climbing walls and boulders can offer new physical exercises and challenges that often are absent in the city. Urban Krag is interesting, adventurous, and is something one might not expect historic Dayton offers its residents!
