Reviewed 28 August 2013

well, i don't climb but my college freshman son does; he's addicted to it; his girlfriend back east was a nationally ranked climber and they climbed at a local rock gym. He says this place is just flat out fantastic.

“Great climbing gym”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

Spire offers something for everyone...a fun bouldering room, lots of lead climbing, and top roping for any ability level. I especially love the quality of the route setting, the friendly staff, and the flooring. Having visited many gyms around the country, Spire is one of the cleaner and well-kept facilities I've been to thus far.

“Top notch facility”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

This gym stands out among the many climbing gyms I have visited across the US and world. While it is not as large as those in metropolitan areas like Sunnyvale and Boulder, the routes are consistently good quality. I have climbed in gyms in Sunnyvale CA, Boulder CO, Albuquerque NM, Amsterdam, Melbourne, and several in Sydney Australia. While many were larger gyms and some had higher ceilings for longer routes, none were as reliably challenging or as accurate on route difficulty. This gym is great for the serious climber as well as the casual, and I have taken my young family and out of town guests with everyone enjoying the facility.

“Great small town gym”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

Very friendly and helpful staff. Big bouldering room, half the walls are top-rope, other half set up for lead climbing. Gets very warm and busy on a Sunday afternoon--midday during the week is better

“Fun place with varying levels of challenge.”

It was fun at a fair price. I went there with my wife on a date. We had not been climbing in a long time. Staff was helpful. We enjoyed the experience.
