Deep Water Solo

Deep Water Solo is a form of rock climbing that relies on falling into a deep pool of water instead of traditional climbing protection using harnesses, ropes, and anchors. The Whitewater Center is home to the world’s first Deep Water Solo Climbing Complex and features five walls ranging in height from 20 – 45 feet arched over a 20-foot-deep pool. Deep Water Solo is open to all skill and experience levels.
