We receive a lot of questions about how young is too young to climb at our facility. We suggest 5 years as a good starting age, however every child is different size and ability wise. We do have a minimum weight of 40lbs in order to use one of our harnesses.
New to climbing? Wanna try? Here are some options to get you started:
Bouldering is climbing to a maximum of 13 feet without being attached to a rope, after which the climber jumps or falls onto mats on the floor. It is harder than climbing the roped routes and is very popular with our adult members. No experience is required to do this and you won’t have to make a booking. Look at the diagram below to see how bouldering works! Wikipedia also has a great explanation of bouldering.
*See Waivers, Bouldering: $15, Rock Shoes (recommended): $5
2) Introductory Belay Course:
This is the first step to becoming a seasoned top rope climber! This two hour course teaches participants how to use climbing equipment, proper belaying technique, safety skills and communication.

A $50 deposit or credit card number is required at time of booking. Please see course dates below and call to sign up.
