When the Friendship Center in Lower Paxton Township polled its members about what new attraction they’d like to see added to the complex, the response was decisive; they wanted a climbing wall.
The center quickly began the the process, with construction beginning last April. It’s a one-of-a-kind structure that features several different walls with different levels of difficulty, to offer adrenaline-packed fitness.
Consultant Mike Decavalcante said the reaction so far has been amazing.
“We’ve had folks of all ages to the top,” he said. “We have folks climb that have a disability, even quadriplegia.”
To see the Daybreak team tackle the walls, watch the video above.

There will be a grand opening celebration for the climbing wall on January 28. It is free to the public.
Climbing wall classes are being offered this winter.
Non-members can purchase day passes to the Friendship Center. The cost is $13 before 4 p.m. and $15 daily after 4 p.m. and on weekends and holidays.
