This is my go to place for climbing. They have more top rope routes than most gym, and don't use auto belays. This means when you get tired you can rest in your harness, which I personally really appreciate. That said it's a very big...More

Liked the gym...lots of routes, lots of diversity in types of walls, nice staff. My harness legs wouldn't stay tight, however, and everyone from our group who rented shoes was very uncomfortable. They would have gotten 5 stars if we had brought our own climbing...More

First time rock climbing. This was inexpensive, fun, and a definite workout. $13. per person, $5.00 to rent equipment, shoes, and harness for all day. Safety was stressed from the beginning. A general waiver to sign, watch a video, for first time watchers, it seemed...More

This a cool rock gym that has super-helpful staff to teach and guide you your first or second time through. There are many walls but most are beyond beginner level. The only draw back I have is there is no A/C, so in monsoon season...More

Been going here on and off for 10+ years. It's like a second home. Summers are brutal, though. A/C would be a really nice addition.
