Hangar 18 East Riverside – Riverside, CA

First gym on my 60 day LA work trip! (Total, but not all in a row thankfully…)

The gym had Nicros walls so the setting is already limited in that regard, but I was still pleased with what they were putting up! There wasn’t a whole lot of hard stuff, maybe 10 or so problems above v6, but it was still fun.

The community was great and will be what keeps me back there at least three or four times. The cool thing about Hangar 18 is pass gives you access to all 7 of their locations! I think they all have the same wall type (😥) , but at least there is a variety of setting styles!

Speaking of setting style, this gym did pretty well. None of the gymnastic style climbing, but some of the harder problems definitely didn’t feel ‘right’. Movement was forced or feet were missing, but after talking with a few dudes who climb regularly they filled me in on some of the beta. Very helpful!

Looking forward to checking out a few more in the up and coming trips.
