OUR LOCATION

FACILITY FEATURES

  • FREE PARKING

    Climbmax at SMAC offers free parking for all our participants and visitors, with handicap parking available behind the boulder. Space is limited to active guests, and we ask that you do not use the facility parking to access the parks.

  • CLIMB BY APPOINTMENT

    To accommodate COVID-19 protocols, we will now offer climbing sessions that can be reserved in advance. These 105-minute sessions allow us to perform additional cleaning, minimize exposure, and streamline contact tracing. 

  • EQUIPMENT RENTALS

    Climbmax at SMAC offers a wide variety of equipment for rent, including harnesses, climbing shoes, belay devices, and lead climbing ropes. You can also rent crashpads, helmets, and additional gear for outdoor use.

  • OUTDOOR CLIMBING

    We have dozens of routes set outdoors that are available to access. Our outdoor wall has 2 autobelays and lead climbing terrain, and the giant boulder out front can be topped out by approved climbers.

  • LEAD CLIMBING

    Our 35-foot Walltopia lead climbing wall features vertical and overhanging terrain with routes set from 5.7 to 5.13+. Climbers must pass a lead climbing and/or belaying test. 

  • BOULDERING

    Climbmax at SMAC has ample bouldering terrain on vertical to overhanging surfaces. Routes are set from V0 to V9, and our Moonboard is a great option if you're looking to push grades!

  • AUTOBELAYS + TOP ROPING

    There are always dozens of freshly-set top rope routes available to those who have a certified belayer. We also have 7 autobelays indoors that are available to everyone who has completed their orientation!

  • CLASSES + INSTRUCTION

    We offer regular classes on climbing skills, first aid, and fitness. Climbers can also schedule Private Instruction or Coaching sessions to work one-on-one with an instructor or coach to realize their climbing goals.

  • TRAINING CENTER

    In Fall 2019, we expanded our training center to include a pull-up and hangboard center, complete with a library of some of the best hangboards on the market! Benches, free weights, ellipticals, and an incline treadmill are also available to accomodate your workout needs.

 

GYM CALENDAR

YOUTH

At Climbmax, we recognize the innate ability and curiosity kids have for rock climbing. Through our afterschool programs, we offer an outlet for young climbers to explore and develop their skills in a supportive and encouraging environment. For those who harnessed their passion for the sport, our Climbing Team provides dedicated climbers with top-tier training and coaching to progress and mature. Of course, climbers of any age enjoy sharing their love of rock climbing with friends, and we accommodate birthday parties at both of our facilities. We hope to share our experiences with each and every climber and inspire a lifelong journey into the wonderful world of rock climbing!

CLIMBING CLUBS

Climbing is the perfect opportunity to let loose after school! Our clubs are a 10-week long afterschool program designed for young climbers to approach indoor rock climbing. Meeting weekly, they'll learn the basics at their own pace with lots of fun and games. 

CLIMBING TEAMS

Teams are intentional training environments for young climbers looking to establish a foundation of climbing fitness and technique. Under the guidance of our experienced coaches, team climbers will learn how to set goals, train smart, and hold themselves accountable for their progress.

BIRTHDAY PARTIES

The best place for young climbers to celebrate a birthday is at Climbmax. Friends of all ages can enjoy bouldering and roped climbing; no previous experience is necessary. Both of our locations feature reservable rooms for partygoers to utilize and we can even coordinate pizza delivery for your guests. We also offer a staff belay service to help keep everyone climbing worry-free!

SUMMER CAMPS

Climbmax Climbing summer camps are a great way to have fun during the break. Whether you’re new to the sport or a seasoned rock climber, we have to camp for you! All of our camps run all day, Monday through Friday, and showcase at least one day of outdoor climbing. Several of our camps have overnight components for the maximum climbing camp experience! 

SPRING BREAK CAMP

This is a super fun climbing program for first-time climbers and younger climbers who are still exploring the sport.
