WANT TO RESERVE A GROUP?

Please call 828 252 9996 or send us a group inquiry (see button above) to get started designing a program that will meet the goals of your group and fit its budget as well.
For groups who want to use our facilities on a regular basis, a group membership affords a group our best rates (even more discounted from the prices below) and preferred scheduling. Billing is available to group members for all visits and services. Membership rates are extended to group staff on their individual visits.

All participants must have a pdfClimbmax2017-Indoor-ParticipationAgreement filled out prior to indoor climbing.

OPTIONS FOR GROUPS

(all group rates start at six participants, there are additional discounts for groups of 15+)

girl child on wallOption # 1 – Bouldering (No instruction) is unroped climbing below our established bouldering line (8’ – 12’).  Participants experience the thrill of climbing year round in a weather proof environment.  Each participant can climb in the bouldering cave & on the climbing walls up to the bouldering line (8’ – 12’).  This is a good opportunity for participants to challenge themselves, hone their climbing skills, & have fun without going into roped climbing. This is a great option for first-timers, rainy day fun activities, & young children.          
$ 10.00 / person

Option # 2 – Bouldering with instruction.  Includes the same use of the indoor facility as above, with personalized training & instruction from  our skilled staff  in more advanced techniques such as dynamic movement, grip techniques and problem solving.  
$ 15.00 / person

STAFF BELAY

Option # 3Staff Belay and Bouldering. Our most popular option, this choice is perfect for birthday parties and special events, and for people who want to try roped climbing.  Each participant will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a climbing instructor, learn basic belay commands and techniques, as well as bouldering basics.  Climbers may try any of our walls. Harnesses are included.
$22.50 / person.

INSTRUCTION

guided climbingOption #4 – Instruction in Climbing Basics.  Rope handling basics, belay techniques, knot tying, and climbing safety are the highlights of this program.  Participants will be taught to belay each other with supervision, and will  gain a better understanding of the sport of indoor climbing.  The ultimate goal of this option is group independence for future visits.  Harnesses are provided.

$35.00 / person

Option #5 – Full Climbing Instruction.  This advanced program offers our most complete instruction in roped climbing.  Participants will receive in-depth training in rope handling techniques, rappelling, and safety.   Weather permitting, most of this program will be offered on our 40 foot outside wall.  
$45.00 / person

NO INSTRUCTION

Option #6 – Bouldering & Roped Climbing – No Instruction.  This  works well for groups who are already proficient in belay technique and climbing safety.  The group functions independently after demonstrating ability to meet ClimbMax’s established procedures and safety standards.

  • @Regrann from @houndsgrin (one of our setters and a wonderful human being) - I've always been passionate about work, and my tendency is to find employment that is equal parts stressful and fulfilling.  My current job with @secondgearwnc is the least stressful I've had at any point in my life.  Case in point, I recently got to take our staff to @climbmaxnc to take pictures of some climbing shoes.  A few days later I got to represent the company at @rumbleclimbingcomp and spend a beautiful day bouldering with great people.  Safe to say I feel pretty fortunate to be doing what I'm doing. #passion #climbing #bouldering
