The Gym

Bouldering

Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that involves climbing short, challenging routes without the use of ropes or harnesses. We have got 3 bouldering areas, that just require a quick safety orientation to start using.

Auto Belays

Auto belays are automated devices designed to help you ascend our walls and gently lower you down afterward. We have 7 auto belays available, and a quick orientation is all it takes to use them. Minimum weight 22lbs - Max 300lbs

Top Ropes

Using top ropes requires extra training. This rope setup involves a climber on one end while another person "belays" the climber. With over 40 top ropes available, they offer a wide range of routes to explore when you're ready to step up your game. Classes are offer on a limited schedule, and participants are encouraged to schedule in advance.

Lead Climbing

Lead climbing involves ascending a wall while attaching the rope to protection points. We offer 21+ lead lines, but this type of climbing demands advanced skills, training, and certification to use safely.

Training

We offer a range of training tools to enhance your climbing skills, including an adjustable Tension Board, a campus board, hang boards, and pull-up bars. We also provide kettlebells, free weights, a weight vest, an Indo Board, elastic straps, and more for your training needs.
