FAQ’s

What's the difference between top roping and bouldering?

Think of bouldering as a sprint and top roping as a long jog. When you’re bouldering you’re trying as hard as you can on a couple of moves, and when you’re top roping you’re testing your endurance. Our bouldering walls are 15 feet, and our rope walls are 30. Top roping and using our auto belays also requires a harness and some extra orientation, so make sure to stop by the desk if you’re interested.

What should I wear? What should I bring with me?

Any sort of athletic wear will work just fine! Pants are suggested, as our walls and holds are new and pretty sharp, but shorts are just fine as well. Make sure to bring some water with you! We have a bottle refilling station downstairs in the gym, but if you forget, we sell water and other assorted drinks in the cafe. Street shoes are not permitted on our climbing walls, but we have rental climbing shoes available at the front desk if you don’t have your own.

What are auto-belays? Do we have any?

Yes! We do have auto-belays. Auto-belays are machines that do a belayers job, and allow you to climb in our rope climbing area even if you don’t have a partner. We currently have 10 auto-belays so there are plenty of options. They do require a harness and some extra orientation, so make sure to stop by the front desk for more information.

Do we have climbing classes?

Absolutely! Right now we’re starting out with the basics with an intro to climbing class and a top rope belay class. Scroll up for more information!
