About Ackerman Sports and Fitness Center:

This is a Park District owned facility on the north side of Glen Ellyn. It just recently opened its doors, in January of 2010. The climbing area is only part of the complex which also contains a workout center, indoor soccer field, and basketball courts. The wall itself is quite large, supporting 13 top ropes, 5 auto belays, 10 bolted routes, and a 10 foot tall, 20 foot wide bouldering wall. The rock wall is still in its infancy, new routes are added weekly and the potential for experienced route setters to work with the staff is available. There are many feature climbs including two floor to ceiling cracks that increase in difficulty with the availability of holds. Admission is ridiculously cheap at $3 per climber for residents and $5 for non residents. This currently includes harness rental, but all prices are subject to change in the near future... so come soon and come often. Hours are: Mon - Fri: 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm Sat: 11:00 am - 3:00 pm Sun: 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
