“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I've been to the Earth Treks in Columbia and Timonium but this one is better because it is so much bigger!! There are spaces for top roping, bouldering, and lead climbing. They have SO MANY classes that are super helpful. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

“Great place to learn out to rock climb.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

This was our first time rock climbing and we felt very comfortable. The instructors were very helpful and made sure you understood all the terminology and rope tying techniques. After the class you are allowed to return another day to become certified in belaying.

“Very good indoor climbing gym”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

This is a large indoor climbing gym with a broad selection of routes for top-roping, lead-climbing, and bouldering. They also have a weights and aerobic area and a retail area that sells protection, climbing shoes, clothing and guidebooks. The only drawback to the place is that it tends to get very busy in the early evening, and since any route can be lead (and many are), the number of available routes for top-roping can be fewer than expected. Best to lead-climb, which means being solid at 5.10a or higher is a good idea. A great climbing resource in the flat-lands of suburban DC.

“Great fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Nestled behind Marlo Furniture, you would never expect such a big indoor rock climbing center to be here. But it is, and it is a lot of fun for beginning or experienced climbers. The support from the staff is great and it seems very safe, as you are buckled in tightly as you climb. There is something for every level, too, so no matter how experienced you are, you will be challenged. It is great, too, for the beginner, as the staff spends the time to help you out. Great fun and good exercise for a rainy day!
