Whether this is your very first time climbing, or you’ve been at it for years, we guarantee we’ve got something for you.
Here’s what to expect the first time you come to the gym:
Bouldering is climbing stripped down to the essentials. Here at Active Climbing, all you’ll need is a pair of climbing shoes and a chalk bag (which we can supply if you don’t have your own!). Our boulder problems (routes) are designed for climbers at every skill level with short, challenging problems. Additionally, safety mats are placed beneath all of our bouldering walls to help keep climbers safe.
Once you’re here, we can give you the run-down on how our routes and grading system work. And, for groups less than 10, there’s no appointment necessary- just show up!
Bouldering is appropriate for all ages, but tends to be more challenging than top-roping. If this is your first time, we recommend you come take a look and decide what is the best fit for you!
Intro to Top-Roping Class
This class is designed for folks with little or no climbing experience who want to use our top ropes. It teaches the basic skills needed to top rope climb: securing your harness, climbing commands, safety checks and belay, i.e., managing the rope while your partner is climbing to protect them from a fall. We also can show you around the bouldering section where most of our members climb. After successfully completing this course, students are able to climb independently at Active Climbing.
Cost: Free for members /$20 non-members
Duration: 30 min - 1 hour
Age requirement to belay: 18 years of age and over
Age requirement to climb: None
Includes: Rental equipment (climbing shoes, chalk and harness) and day pass.
