Bouldering is rock climbing without using ropes or harnesses. Typically, the climbs don’t go too high off the ground. Our boulders are usually thirteen to fifteen feet tall, and the tallest ones are sixteen to seventeen feet. To climb outside, boulderers move crashpads under the climbs to pad the fall zone. In our gym, the entire floor is a giant, squishy pad.
The only thing you need to come bouldering is a pair of climbing shoes and a chalk bag (chalk keeps your hands from becoming too sweaty). Climbing barefoot, or in non-climbing shoes is not allowed. Climbing shoes make climbing a lot easier, and will help you feel more secure and confident on our walls. In order to facilitate a great experience, we offer free rentals for all first time visitors. With a membership, you can get great discounts on climbing shoes and much more in our retail shops. If you have any questions, or require accommodations, please contact your local gym.
Nope, feel free to stop on by. Just make sure to check out our hours first.
Anyone! Bouldering is a physically demanding sport, but we’re here to help. You don’t need to have previous experience to start.
We recommend children are at least 4 years old to start bouldering. All children need to be supervised by a parent or guardian while in the gym.
We recommend comfortable, stretchy clothing that is easy to move around in. However, whether you wear shorts, tights, lycra, or hammer pants, we do ask that everybody (men and women) wears a shirt or tank top.
Nope, you get all of it. You can visit our Yoga & Fitness page for information on classes and schedules.
Yes. Rock climbing is inherently dangerous. Highly-attentive adult supervision is crucial for the safety of youth and others. Any youth (younger than 14) must be actively supervised by the adult who is responsible for them during their visit to the gym. 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.
Even though we love our furry friends, we don’t allow them inside the gym. Please leave your pets at home.
