Mr. BIG Climbing Wall
Experienced climbers only!

This 36-foot natural wall is perfect for those climbers who are looking for a more challenging experience. Mr. BIG is an advanced-feature climbing structure that allows a more natural, unique climbing experience than other walls utilizing gym holds.

Routes on the wall range from 5:10 b to 11 c/d. If you are passionate about outdoor climbing, you need to experience our Mr. BIG Climbing Wall in the mainstreet area of the Collicutt Centre.

Bouldering Room
The Collicutt Centre is the only indoor climbing facility in Red Deer and this new feature enhances the already popular sport. A bouldering wall is shorter than a climbing wall and is done without the use of harness equipment. Bouldering techniques are used as a means to improve moves and build stamina for other types of climbing such as outdoor rock climbing. The bouldering wall design includes more angles, overhangs and other features that make climbing more challenging.
