“good way to try indoor rock climbing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

for $20 I was given a fellow who was the puppetmaster on my belay get up and allowed three walls to climb. I did a beginner first and was up and down quickly. Then, a more advanced one which was harder but I did it. Finally, I was lead to the hardest wall and only made it halfway. As it gets harder the stepping stones and rocks to grab are further apart and smaller. I wore sneakers and found them too bulky. Something with rubber grips but more form fitting would do better.

“Great Climbing BUT try Rockville! ! !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

This is a great facility, but with the renovations done at the Rockville Earthtreks - you should REALLY try there! Great bunch of folks run this place and I've been climbing here for years.

“If you want to climb, this is a great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

I've gotten into indoor climbing in the last couple of years, and I love it! I go regularly in the winter with my boyfriend, and when I have guests in town, we love to take them climbing.

I have my own shoes and harness, but for $28, you can rent both and climb for the day.
