Mission Cliffs are not what you would imagine. When the word 'cliffs' are used, most of us think of a natural rock outcropping; however, Mission Cliffs is a Touchstone Gym. In fact, it is the original that was built in 1995. Mission Cliffs are fake rock cliffs for an indoor rock climbing center located in San Francisco, California.
The cliffs are a headwall of 50 feet, with various challenges for climbing such as shelves and large rock outcroppings to climb around, and they are the tallest indoor climbing visitors will find anywhere. Beginners and experts will find plenty of challenges on the climbing wall. Mission Cliffs has several programs to help teach rock climbing, and even added some new ones in 2010.
In total there is 14,000 square feet of climbing terrain, 2,000 square feet of bouldering, and over 80 top and lead ropes to accommodate all guests. There is a weight room, aerobic equipment, saunas, yoga, indoor cycling, cardio boxing, and locker rooms with showers for guests at the facility. Their hours of operation are Monday, Wednesday, Friday 6:30am to 10pm, Tuesday and Thursday 6:30am to 11pm, and Saturday and Sunday 9am to 7pm. They offer reciprocal membership to other Touchstone Gyms.
