Safe Haven

For many young people in Memphis, the climbing hall "Memphis Rox" has become a safe haven. Even though the vibe of the Southern metropolis is still intact, the city on the Mississippi no longer has the best reputation and offers only limited opportunities, especially for its youth. "Memphis Rox" has therefore become a popular place for people to come together, inviting people to try a new sport and perhaps reach beyond their personal limits. The climbing hall is non-profit, and it excludes no one from climbing—regardless of their ability to pay. The visitor numbers speak for themselves, and the first climbing students have now become mentors.
