Fill out a Waiver

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Bouldering?

Bouldering is ropeless climbing over padded flooring.  All you need is a pair of climbing shoes and climbing chalk!  We have an entire area dedicated to bouldering.

What is the youngest age you allow in the gym?

There is no minimum age in the gym.  Our youngest age for youth programming is 4 years old with our Rock Tots class.  Children under 4 years old are welcome in our gym but may not be able to climb in all areas due to distance between holds.  When not otherwise occupied, our upstairs party room has the best climbing for kids 4 and under.
