Through our programs we offer:

  • Climbing/belaying skills relevant to outdoor settings
  • Team-building experiences
  • Celebration events (birthday parties, graduation parties)
  • Development of character, perseverance, and self-esteem
  • Skill training at beginner and intermediate climbing levels
  • Physical fitness


Open Gym

Open Gym is our public climbing program offering a welcoming environment to climbers of all ages and abilities. We also host theme nights and other fun events.

Private Events

Our facility is available to host private events, such as birthday parties, team-building workshops, or school climbing courses. 

Classes and Lessons

Youth and adults can learn to climb through semi-private lessons at our gym. Participants ages 14 and older can also learn to belay.


The rock gym consists of an 8' by 80' bouldering traverse and 25' vertical walls with eight top-rope climbs, including a roof section. We maintain a variety of routes ranging from easy to difficult. We currently use holds from Metolius, Entre Prises, Nicros, and Three Ball Climbing.
