First Time Tips

If you have more questions check out our FAQs page or contact a location near you!

Bouldering is an exciting and fun sport—but it does come with risks. We take safety very seriously and encourage you to read these tips to help keep you and your kids safe. Any parent, guardian or chaperone responsible for a youth must maintain direct supervision over the youth during the entirety of their visit. An adult cannot supervise more than 2 youth at a time.

Our rule of thumb is treat the gym like a busy street. You need to look both ways before you cross, be sure not to run ahead, and be aware of your surroundings—including whatever or whoever might be above you!

Like we said above, it’s important that you always watch out for other climbers and never get to close to where someone else is climbing!

When you’re on the mats (and in our gym in general), we want you to have fun, but safety is important! Running around, yelling, and engaging in horseplay or gymnastics isn’t just disruptive to other people using the gym…it might also get you hurt!
