All gyms should have a flat, continuous surface for you to land on, whether that is small rocks, foam, whatever. Any gym that has mats that can be dragged around is offering up an uneven surface for ankle rolls or worse, and you should make this clear to them and request that they improve the safety of their gym. I see this all too often in indoor climbing gyms, and even if there is a flat foam landing ignorant climbers still drag pads under problems. They'll even do it for you, without asking, putting your legs in danger. Suboptimal!

Just say no to uneven surfaces in climbing gyms! This is a preventable injury that probably happens daily across the country.

Sorry you got hurt though, and I'm glad you'll be back at it.
