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 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.
