Around Livermore: Like fireworks, Valley Rock Gym worth rescue
In high school, I earned my spending money by coaching kids baseball, scorekeeping adult softball and maintaining fields.

Terrible rock gym. It couldn't exist as a private business because it wasn't worth the cost to private individuals to fund it through patronage. It shouldn't exist as a public business for us all to pay for what isn't even worth it to the patrons. It's just been a drain on the city for the past five years. It was a drain on the owner before he offloaded it onto us for even more of our money wasted. Plus it's still $14 each time if you want to actually use it!
Sunrise/ValleyRock is so bad now it's worth driving out to another rock gym if you enjoy climbing. I used to be on the youth league growing up but saw the gym get progressively worse through the years and most of the experienced climbers leave. Too bad.

IV never had a problem my daughter has had many private lessons and had learned how to be a great climber I love this place.

I've been thinking about my previous post and have been feeling kind of bad about it. I may not find it to be a good rock gym anymore but it seems a lot of people in our community enjoy and appreciate it.
It's unfortunate that the gym has been incurring so many expenses that they've had to close. I hope the best for them and whoever climbs there and would like to see it be able to run on its own feet. Thanks for the memories Sunrise/ValleyRock.
