“Austin’s community continues to grow, and we hope to be part of the fabric that makes this city so unique and welcoming to people from all walks of life,” McIntosh said. “No matter the age or skill level, we hope to satisfy the most experienced climbers in town as well as those who are curious about climbing or are simply looking for a healthy and fun activity.”
