A few years ago, the remnants of the Deutsche Evangelical Reform Church stood useless in the Oregon District. Despite its grand past, and over 5,000 Sunday services, its doors had been closed for years and it was slated for demolition. When experienced rock climber Karl Williamson happened upon the property at 125 Clay Street, he immediately thought it was a great place to construct an Urban Krag – a rock climbing wall. Williamson had been searching for over eight months for a place to create the next big indoor rock climbing facility, and the old church provided all the space necessary. Williamson’s passion and hard work, coupled with that of property owner Tim Patterson, resulted in the creation of Ohio’s premier indoor rock climbing facility. Featuring 8,000 feet of textured terrain and heights ranging from 28 to 56 feet, the Urban Krag is truly a Dayton Original.  Watch a brief video about the Urban Krag.
