We visit 1 to 2 times per week for my 11 yr old daughter to learn and train. Amazing staff who ensure my daughter climbs in a safe and interesting environment. The best facility we could ask for.

I went today with my little girl who has never done climbing before. The lady who took her around the climbing walls was very nice and made her feel at ease. We went for the children's session and where the only ones there. Would recommend.
