Rock climbing at Manchester Wall Richmond, VA

American Alpine Club Clinic

Being far from the mountains, Richmond offers a unique rock climbing venue. The downtown area is home to The Manchester Bridge, offering rock climbing routes from 30-60′ on granite blocks. The climbs are on stone bridge abutments and are equipped with bolted top anchors, sport routes and mixed climbs. The bridge climbing area offers a beautiful view of the city’s downtown.

This area is great for individuals trying out climbing and rappelling for the first time, as well as for climbers looking to learn sport climbing or self rescue skills.
