Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Are there classes for beginners?

    Yes! We’d love to help you get started with our Gym Intro class. It even comes with a free week of membership to practice what you’ve learned! See here for a full class list or call us in advance to schedule. 

  2. Can I just drop in? Are there specific times for this?

    Absolutely you drop in; anytime we’re open! If you have a large group, let us know ahead of time so our staff can be prepared. Please keep in mind that all climbers will need waivers and those under 18 years of age must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian. This can be done online.

  3. Is there a minimum age for climbers?

    While we pride ourselves on being a family-friendly business, kinesthetic awareness can be hit or miss at early ages – and we like to avoid bumped heads! If your child is under age 5, please call us before coming by.

  4. Do I need my own gear?

    We rent everything you need on site! If you’re looking to purchase, Mountain Supply and Redpoint Climbers Supply are fantastic local options with knowledgeable staff.

  5. Can I wear my own shoes?

    As long as they’re climbing shoes, absolutely!

  6. What should I wear?

    Whatever you’re most comfortable in, except dresses or skirts. We recommend athletic type clothing that won’t restrict movement but isn’t overly loose as it can be caught on holds. Many climbers find longer shorts or pants to be more comfortable with a harness.

  7. Should I wear socks with my (renta) shoes?

    We recommend it but you’re not required to. Our rental shoes are disinfected after every use. However, our they do see a lot of use.

  8. Do I need a partner?

    Nope! We have auto-belays, bouldering areas, and a tread wall for solo use. You will only need a partner if you already know how to belay and choose to do so.

  9. Do you sell snacks and drinks?

    Yes, we have a small selection of both!
