You can find two rock climbing locations in the Yukimatsu neighborhood and one rock climbing location in the Senbamachi neighborhood within Mt. Komorebi.

To get to a rock climbing location you can go to any lot located in he Yukimatsu or the Senbamachi neighborhood. When you are in the neighborhood you want to look for a texturized wall, and when you hover over the wall you will notice that it becomes highlighted allowing you to click on it.

There are a variety of rock climbing locations, some more difficult than others. You will know if your sim has the ability to climb it based on the options you get when you click on the wall. If your sim only has the option to “Inspect Climbing Wall Conditions” it is likely that your sim is not skilled enough yet to climb that particular location.

If you do inspect the climbing wall conditions for a location that is too difficult for your sim you will receive a wall notification telling you that your sim’s rock climbing skill is too low to attempt to climb there.
