Climbing wall

Our staff help make climbing safe and enjoyable for both first-time climbers and enthusiasts. We provide all the climbing equipment you need for free, and our staff are always available to belay and offer tips to get you off the ground.

Drop in!

Climbing is on a drop-in basis during regular rock wall hours. Stop by and we will give you a brief orientation to our wall, and get you climbing right away. Even if you have never been climbing before, our staff will walk you through everything you need to know so that your first experience is as easy as it is fun!


One of the best parts about our rock wall is that it's available at no additional cost for anyone with access to our facility. In addition, all of the equipment you need is provided for free, including harnesses and shoes. For guests and non-members, a $10 day pass can be purchased which includes access to our wall.
