  • Great climbing gym! I've been a member for a year and a half, and this is the best all-around gym I've been to. It's very big and has a large variety of lead, top rope, and boulder climbs. There's new rope climbs and boulder problems usually every week, and more recently the routesetters have been becoming more creative with the boulder problems, using lots of volumes and setting more traverse-y problems. The staff are friendly and the price is decent. The few cons include a lack of air conditioning, a lack of storage space when it's very busy, and small change rooms which is only a problem in the winter. Additionally, the boulder problem grading is sometimes inconsistent at the intermediate level (at which I climb). Regardless, this is a top-notch climbing facility and I highly recommend it!
  • Me and my mom had a terrible experience here. The staff and the people who climbed there were EXTREMELY rude to us. Since we hadn't been there for a really long time when we came back we were a bit unsure if the rules. When the staff/people who climbed there wanted to confirm the rules with us they said it in the rudest way possible. Every small thing we'd do (including practicing belaying with the belay training ropes) someone would tell us that's not allowed or something. Not 5 minutes would go by without someone being extremely rude to us and half the things we were doing were things we saw other people doing too! Other than that the walls itself was good.
  • Best rock climbing gym around. To bad it wasn't closer to my house! The Boulder problems are regularly changed which makes you want to come back soon and try and get the climb before it gone. Great for all levels. Children to elders. I recommend this place all the time!
  • Being a beginner I was a little hesitant about being able to find good rocks to train on. However I was not disappointed, they have good paths for all levels and they switch up the routes on a regular basis. Great for work parties and birthday parties. Overall if you are into climbing, this gym is worth the money!
  • There are a lot of bouldering routes that cater to all skill levels. More than enough to keep you occupied for the entirety of every visit. The routes are switched frequently enough to keep anyone from getting bored. Easily the best climbing gym I've ever been to.
