 f.a.q. 

Do I need a reservation?


You do not need a reservation to come and climb. You only need a reservation for large groups (6+) or for instruction or other staffed services.




Do I need to bring any gear?


You are required to wear closed toed shoes. We highly recommend climbing shoes (which we rent), but they are not required. For roped climbing, you will need a harness. All harnesses should be newer than 8-10 years old. We rent harnesses.




Can I belay?


We require that all belayers pass our Belay Test (no charge). It consists of a few questions and an observation of your belay. Our test adheres to the Universal Belay Standard developed by the American Alpine Club. We require anyone under the age of 16 to have a backup belayer; depending on their age this may be a peer or supervising adult, please contact one of our gyms for more information on our age policies.




What are your age requirements?


At a minumum, climbers must be 4 years old to use the facility. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent. There are some additional restrictions on activities such as operating the autobelays, lead climbing, and top-out bouldering; please call one of our gyms for more information.
