Get right on the wall- great for all ages, and all abilities. We can show you how to boulder and use our auto belay systems safely so that you can climb on your own. The Quick Start includes gear rental and an all-day climbing pass. Walk-ins welcome.

$24 per person. Climbers under 12 will require an adult to operate the auto belays for them.

Beginner’s Package

Learn to belay- for climbers 14 and older. Trained instructors show you how to tie knots, belay (hold the ropes), auto belay, boulder, and use proper climbing terms. This package includes a belay lesson, gear rental, and an all-day climbing pass! Appointment recommended.

$36 per person. Must have a partner to climb. Partner does not need to be over 14. Upon completion of the beginner package, climbers can purchase a special introductory 1 month membership w/gear rental for only $24.

Intro to Climbing

A more detailed introduction to climbing- for climbers 14 and older. This 2 hour instruction course expands upon the Beginner’s package with a more in-depth look at the sport and our facility. Includes belay lesson, gear rental, an all-day climbing pass, and a 1 month membership with gear rental for both people. Available by prepaid appointment only.

$99 for 2 people and includes 1 month membership. Check availability and sign up below, or call the gym for additional dates and times.

"We Belay"

Let our staff hold the ropes for you! This is a great option for families with multiple children, solo climbers, or where no one in the group is trained to belay, but the climbers want to move beyond the auto belays. One staff can work with up to 6 climbers at a time, each taking turns climbing the top rope walls. This is not an instruction, however our staff will offer encouragement and tips, and assist in selecting the proper wall for the climbers’ skill level.

Continuing your Climbing Journey

Technique Class

We offer private and group technique classes for the climber looking to reach that next level. Whether you’re a beginner who wants guidance getting started, or an experienced climber who needs some refinement of technique on the wall, we can pair you with an instructor who will work with you towards your individual goals.

Private lessons may be scheduled any time with advance notice. For group classes, please see our calendar. Most group classes meet for 4 weeks in a session.

Lead Class

Lead climbing uses more advanced climbing and belay techniques. It begins with the ropes disconnected from all anchors. The lead climber is responsible for clipping the rope into anchors set along the wall while the lead belayer gives the rope slack to accommodate the proper anchoring. Climbers must pass a test to lead climb or belay at any of our facilities. Lessons are available.

The lead climbing lesson takes two to three 2 hour sessions (based on the climbers experience). We recommend a minimum of 6 months climbing experience plus the ability to climb 5.9 very comfortably before signing up for this course. It is also recommended that an even number of people be present for the class with a maximum of four per session.

Classes by appointment only (flexible scheduling), inquire at the desk to schedule an appointment, or check availability and sign up below. Cost for two people is just $60 per 2 hour session (does not include day pass).

 All lessons may be scheduled in the gym or by phone. For your convenience, select classes are available with online reservation below.
