“Disgusting”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

I have been to Climb Time multiple times over the past years. It is disgusting and way over priced. The staff is very inatentive and rude. What bothered me the most was how dirty the place was. There was dust and dirt everywhere, I don't think that it has ever been cleaned before. I will never go back to this place again. Disgusting.

“Great place for team building”

I love the fact that they had different challenge levels. I had never done this before but staff was very helpful in helping my friends and I.

“Great Fun!”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Excellent staff, good facilities. Terrific place for kids - until he graduated to outdoor climbing & bouldering my son absolutely loved this place. The membership is definitely advantageous. They sell equipment & are very helpful in advising. Safety is paramount - the staff are incredibly helpful. This is the place is an excellent resource for learning about climbing as the staff are passionate about their sport & happy to share their expertise! Love this place :)

“Nice place to burn some energy”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

I've been to climbing gyms all over the country, and this one was on par. Nice walls, lots of routes. The facility was clean and well maintained. I stick to bouldering, and they had a ton of climbs that ranged from simple to pretty freaking hard. I read the comments about rude staff, and I did not encounter any of that. The guy working the counter was friendly. I kind of liked the pet snake in the lobby, too...

“Cheap climbing gym with poor short routes”
Reviewed 21 February 2013

This gym is best set up for bouldering as the walls are very short ~10m. So as I hit the bouldering walls I realized the main draw back at Climb time. Easier bouldering routes are very poorly set! Each V0 or V1 was just a ladder with right hand left hand up up up..... There were no interesting problems until you moved into much harder ratings. Perhaps if they re-set some harder routes with larger holds there would be an interesting challenge for beginners. Also it would be difficult to progress as much the mental technique is so important to learn along with physical training.

The place was very dark especially the Far overhanging wall where a headlamp would have helped on the route. Overall the gym feels ordinary, uninspired, and just kind of hanging on. The staff seems tired and annoyed that they need to do their jobs, and I agree with other reviewers that their handicapped belay setups and lackluster attitude about training are irresponsible.

Either way its a good work out in a pinch, but it wouldn't be much fun with a membership.
