What should I wear?

We suggest wear loose-fitting clothing that will give you full range of motion. Sneakers are the best choice if you don’t want to rent climbing shoes.

Can I just show up or do I need an appointment?

No appointment necessary! Whether you have never climbed before or if you are a climbing veteran, just show up when we are open and someone will be here to help you. 

*Scheduled appointment times would only be required for very large groups (10+).

Do I need a belay partner?

If you want to climb the ropes, yes you will need to a buddy to belay you. If you are flying solo, we are primarily a bouldering gym and have an amazing bouldering room - no buddy necessary. 

What is bouldering? 

Bouldering is ropeless climbing at low heights.  When you fall, you will drop onto our BigAssPads that are over two feet thick!  

How old do you have to be?

We like to say, if you can walk, you can climb! 


I already pay for Ramsey, why should I climb at Active?

Ramsey’s great! Unfortunately, a lot of climbers aren’t UGA students. If you want to take your climbing to the next level, check us out. We offer a place for everyone to climb, from the young of age to the young at heart.
