The Stronghold Climbing Gym

routesetting lh header


Our routesetting team works year-round to bring the community a variety of creative and challenging climbs for all levels of climbing. Lincoln Heights sees a reset of two walls per week (one bouldering wall and one rope wall). This schedule brings fresh, new climbs on a weekly basis, while providing enough time between sets to work on your projects. See our setting schedule below.


  • Sport routes are generally graded in difficulty from 5.5 to 5.14+ (easy to hard).
  • Boulder problems are generally graded in difficulty from VB to V10+ (easy to hard).
  • The color of the tag represents the grade grouping: green, blue, yellow, red, or black (easy to hard).
  • The color of the holds denotes the path of the climb.
  • Tags denote both the grade (i.e. “5.9” or “V1”) and where you begin the climb.
  • “2nd Hand” tags denote an additional secondhand start hold.
  • For sport routes, climbs are finished by reaching the top or clipping your rope through the two anchors.
  • For boulder problems, climbs are finished either by topping out or finishing at the last hold or “Finish” tag.
