WHat is climbing?

Rock climbing provides a powerful full body workout - it helps to develop exceptional balance and boosts your core strength like no other sport. Above all, climbing is a social activity based on a trustful and welcoming environment.


The thrill of being on the edge, getting that one difficult move right and reaching the top of the route is unmatched. We invite you to experience the holistic approach of climbing, embrace the culture and become part of our community.



“Somewhere between the bottom of the climb and the summit is the answer to the mystery why we climb.”

Greg Child


    About us

When we first tied into a climbing rope more than 10 years ago, little did we know where the journey would lead.

Urban Friction was born from our passion to share the culture of climbing in Namibia. We are constantly searching for and establishing climbing areas to provide a playground for every rock enthusiast. Guiding climbers from across the globe, hosting large corporate team building events and rigging extreme film shoots all add to the unique experience of our team.

Our commitment to what we love most has anchored Urban Friction at the forefront of Rock Climbing in Namibia.
