Since it’s your first time climbing with us, we want to make sure you have the most rewarding experience possible. For participants ages 12yrs.+, climbing shoes and a harness is included in the price. For kids 11 and under, a harness is included.
We offer three different climbing options
TOP ROPE & AUTO BELAY
To top-rope belay, autobelay, and to lead belay, participants must pass a certification test. Bouldering does not require a special certification.
1. Prepare for your visit
All first-time visitors are required to complete a waiver. Filling out a waiver before you arrive will save you 10 minutes. Waivers must be filled out by the state-appointed legal guardian of each climber. If your child is climbing with a friend, be sure to fill out the form online before they arrive.
Adults and kids should wear athletic clothing. If you’ll be wearing a harness, we recommend wearing longer shorts or pants. Your clothing should have enough stretch so that you can reach those far-away holds!
We do not require the use of climbing shoes, but if you opt out of renting/wearing them, you’ll need to be sure to wear closed-toe, athletic shoes instead. First-time visitors ages 12+ receive climbing shoes for free (rental is normally $5).
