Houston's largest indoor climbing gym debuts in Washington Ave. Arts District

HOUSTON, Texas -- Houston's largest indoor climbing gym recently opened its doors in the Washington Avenue Arts District. Located at 1401 Silver St., the new Momentum gym space was previously a beer distribution center warehouse and boasts 43,000 square feet of climbing for fitness fans.

The new facility includes eight climbing zones and a climbing specific training area. There is also a yoga studio and a social lounge/workspace area.

With its expansive new digs, the new spot beats out a predecessor in Katy--which offered 36,000 square feet of climbing--for the title of city's largest indoor climbing gym, and may even be one of the world's largest gyms.

Like the gym in Katy, the Silver Street location includes an REI Co-op with gear and clothing available to purchase.

Kids can get in on the action too: there are dedicated children's climbing areas for children 11 and younger.

Day rates at the new gym are $14 for children and $20 for adults (ages 12 and up). Climbing shoes can be rented for $6. For parents, child care is also available for $4 per hour.

Climbers have two options for membership: they can be billed monthly or pre-pay for an entire year. To see the full range of membership options, check out Momentum Silver Street's website.

Hours are 6 a.m.-11 p.m., Monday to Friday, 10 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday.
