The Crag

Welcome to The Crag at Cool Springs.

The Best Little Climbing Gym in the South

We are a climbing gym in Franklin, Tennessee. Our staff, gym members, and newcomers join together at a core principle: to love rock climbing. Built around a passion for climbing, community, and the adventure lifestyle, we offer everything from a kids club for young climbers, a youth team for our teenage climbers, and seasonal bouldering competitions for those climbers who want to test their limits.

First Time at The Crag?

Getting started climbing at The Crag is easy. When you come in for your first visit we'll show you around, give you an introduction to climbing and make sure you feel safe and 100% comfortable before we let you loose.

If you don't have gear or don't know how to belay don't worry. We rent all the required gear and offer belay lessons or entry level instruction. When you are ready to visit us please be sure to download and complete our waiver. Its important to know that if you are UNDER 18 you need to have a waiver signed by one of your parents. You can either have your parents come with you and complete the digital waiver in person, or if its easier, they can just complete the waiver at home and you'll be ready to check in when you arrive.
