A new outdoor rock-climbing area may be coming to a Plano business after city officials approved the new plans.

Plano Planning and Zoning Commission on May 18 approved the request for the outdoor amusement permit, which is intended to complement the existing indoor facility at Summit Climbing, Yoga and Fitness.

The property next to Summit where the wall would be located is currently vacant, according to city documents.

The developer plans to build a restaurant and fitness center on the site, and received approval this week to add the outdoor rock-climbing use.

While the wall would sit behind a proposed new building, it would be visible from nearby roadways including Mapleshade Lane and SH 190.


Summit has been closed during the coronavirus-related restrictions. It was expected to reopen May 20 to members only, according to its website.

Commissioners approved the outdoor climbing wall permit by a unanimous vote.
