Indoor rock climbing is fun for the whole family. Please come and join us any day of the week for a fun, exciting challenge! We offer over 46 routes, with heights varying from 10 to 37 feet. We have six different bouldering areas, as well as simulated rock faces, chimney climbing, crack climbing, top rope and lead climbing areas. Our gym also has 5 auto belay systems allowing climbers to come in on their own and participate on our large walls. The auto belay takes up the slack as the climber ascends and safely controls the descent when the climber lets go or falls. To learn more about this system check out TRUBLUE.

The staff here is always nice but the ropes are terrible and old, the routes don't get changed often and there are a bunch of loose pieces which does get annoying after a while. Please update your equipment and switch your routes up more often...More
