We took our extended family here over the 4th of July weekend. This place is professionally operated. First time visitors must sign waivers, be photographed, and take a tour of the facility. Then a trained staff member watched as each visitor does a short practice climb in a harness. Only then are you turned loose to explore on your own.... More

River Rock provides some very top quality routes that make for an experience that will delight beginner to more advanced climbers. There are constantly new top-rope & bouldering routes every few weeks and they provide a lot of good classes from yoga to beginner and advanced climbing techniques. A very knowledgeable team of employees who help create a fun atmosphere.

I've been a member here for over a year and go a few times a week. It's great! The bouldering and top rope areas are both sizable, and they change out the holds often to keep things interesting. The staff is always helpful and engaging. It's definitely not cheap, but their pricing is comparable to other climbing gyms I've been... More

Our 8 yr old daughter has always enjoyed climbing...we finally realized we had a climbing gym here and she loves it! Great gym with plenty to do. Staff are all very helpful and friendly. Homeschool day once a month is affordable and good to get the kids together doing something active.

It's a really good time…I went with my daughter. We did fine, but it's not cheap (of course, would you want a rock climbing wall that cut corners?). Even if you are pretty physically fit, two hours is plenty. Your arms will burn the following day.

This was a great afternoon activity on a rainy day. I have a 14, 11 and 8 year old and they all had fun climbing in this newer facility. All levels are accommodated.

Glad to hear it. We are a kid friendly gym, most are not. Our mission is to grow the climbing community, so we hope your children have been bitten with the climbing bug. Be sure to look at our youth programs page on our website for upcoming holiday camps, summer camps, after school programs, youth climbing club, or information about... More
