  • Rock Wall Information

    Modeled after real rocks, our wall offers the most realistic appearance and rock climbing experience possible.

    • The free-standing (belaying) wall is approximately 30 feet tall
    • Features many unique routes of varying difficulty
    • Can be used by climbers of all abilities from beginner to expert
    • The wall offers a variety of terrain and variable width cracks, arêtes, roofs, slabs and overhangs

    The separate bouldering wall is 12 feet high and 25 feet long and offers steep terrain, but is low enough to be climbed without ropes with a high impact mat for protection from falls. 

    Rock climbing shoes and harnesses provided.


    Rock Climbing Classes

    Climbing with ropes is a two person sport. One person climbs while their partner belays; secures the slack end of the rope to ensure the climber will not fall.  Our Belay Qualification Course will teach you the proper techniques to climb safely, and safely belay other climbers. Upon successful completion of the course and after you pass our belay qualification skills test, you will be able to use your new skills in our rock wall any time we’re open!  Although you don’t have to have any experience climbing to take these classes. We recommend that you climb with us at least a few times prior, so you know what to expect.
