Questions about climbing and the facility:
Q: Does the $15 Day Pass include a harness, chalk bag, etc.?
A: Your Day Pass includes everything you will need to climb- harness, chalk bag, carabiners and ATC. Climbing shoes are optional, they can be rented for $3.00.
Q: I purchased or received a daily deal voucher, do I need to make an appointment to use it?
A: No appointment is necessary to use your voucher.
Q: My daily deal voucher has expired. Can I still use it? We do not extend vouchers after the expiration date, however the cash value (what was paid for it) does not have an expiration date. So come on in and we will always honor your voucher for the cash value.
Q: Can I come climb by myself?
A: Since climbing is a team sport requiring two people (climber and belayer) we highly recommend that you come with another person or group of people. If you absolutely can’t find another person to join you, you are always welcome to come to the gym but your options may be limited to bouldering (i.e. climbing around in our training room and hallway). If you come at the right time we may be able to find a group to team up with!
Q: I’ve never climbed before and don’t know anything about it. Will I still be able to come climb?
A: There’s no better time than now to start! If you’ve never climbed before don’t worry, as soon as you arrive our staff will take you through our Basics Course which will teach you how to use an ATC belay device, how to tie into your climbing harness, basic climbing technique and a tour of the facility so you can start climbing safely in our traing room before you venture out to the bigger walls. Climbing is tough, and there are risks involved, but it is not too difficult to get an understanding of the basic skills.
Q: What should I wear when I come to the gym?
A: First, know that our facility is not climate-controlled. It will be cold during the winter months and hot during the summer, so bring appropriate clothes for each season. Otherwise comfortable, functional athletic apparel is the best choice. Also keep in mind that you will be wearing a harness, and that climbing requires a wide range of motion so flexibility is important.
