Great Western Power Co.

Some call it 'Great Western.' Some call it 'The Power Company.' Some call it 'GW.' And others just call it the latest and greatest thing to hit uptown Oakland in recent years. Built in an old power building, we've transformed this historic structure into a state-of-the-art indoor climbing gym. But of course one remnant remains: the smokestack! Rising 150 feet above downtown Oakland, the walls wrap around the stack to create a unique indoor climbing experience. There is a high percentage of easy and moderate terrain, and tons of variety to keep you challenged and enthused. If you prefer not to rope up, we also have an awesome bouldering area with lots of problems to challenge you at any skill level.
We offer a large fitness area upstairs that has a full complement of free weights, weight machines, and cardio equipment - including ellipticals, treadmills, bikes, and stair steppers. Want to take a class? We have a fitness studio and offer yoga, zumba, and other fitness classes to compliment your workout. Crossfit Eastbay also operates out of our facility.
