Do I have to use your rental equipment?
We do require that you either use our rental shoes or have your own climbing shoes while in our gym. If you have your own harness you are more than welcome to use it on our autobelays. Otherwise we have harnesses available for you to use.
I've never climbed before. Do I need to know how to climb before I visit?
We are so glad you are interested in checking out a new hobby! Our staff will go through everything you will need to know once you get to the gym. We talk through the different sections of our gym, safety rules, and basic technique to get you started. Feel free to chat up any climbers you see in the gym as well, they are always more than happy to help explain anything!
What should I wear?
Our gym is an open-air gym, meaning if its not raining we have all of our garage doors open. With that in mind, please dress for the weather outside. In the summer we suggest athletic type shorts and a loose flowing tee or tank. In the colder months we suggest longer pants/leggings and a few layers to keep you warm. If you are using rental shoes you may bring socks to wear with them.
Can I drop my child off at the gym and leave?
No, children under the age of 14 must have direct parental supervision. All kids under the age of 13 will also need a parent or guardian to help with clipping them into the auto belays. If you bring in a child under the age of 5 they must be with you at all times.
