Q & A

Yes, we are open to the public. You can drop by anytime we are open.

We do not have an age minimum, but safety is our priority. If you are coming in with a child under the age of 14, they must be supervised at all times.

Yes. Some gyms offer staff-guided tours and others offer self-guided tours. An appointment is not necessary, you may come in anytime during business hours.

Yes, we have lockers in the common area and in the restrooms, please bring your own lock with you. If you forgot a lock, we do have some for sale and can keep your combo in your account for safe keeping!

We do not have auto belays, however, if you do not have a partner we are always happy to try and find you one. Just ask the desk staff to make an announcement for you over the PA and you’ll be climbing with a new friend in no time.

We do not rent chalk but you can purchase a chalk sock for $5!

Rules & Safety

Rock climbing equipment is available for rental. 

Memberships are available.

Anyone planning to belay in our gyms must pass our belay test. Belay tests are free to take and are offered throughout the day. Our gyms are not equipped with permanent grigris or auto belays, but not to worry—if you didn’t come with a partner, just let the front desk know and we’d be happy to find a new friend for you to climb with in the gym!
