Futurist Designs Lafayette’s First Climbing Gym

Climb Lafayette, opening May 2015, is the first commercial climbing gym in Lafayette, IN. Futurist enjoyed working with the Climb Lafayette team on the wall design and facility layout. According to Futurist President Timy Fairfield, the wall design was inspired by ancient Mayan architecture, Mayan code glyph shapes and space ships! The result of that inspiration is an impressive design aesthetic that is a serious departure from your average climbing gym.

The gym occupies a 7,000sf footprint and offers 4,000sf of climbing surface, including a freestanding top-out boulder, lead and top rope climbing, auto-belays, a crack, a chimney and speed walls. Futurist will provide custom flooring for the entire facility as well. Visit the Futurist Facebook page for updated photos of the project.
