If you enjoy climbing this is the place to be. Various climb routes with various difficulties, and the gym is constantly changing with new routes. Great place to have fun from kids to adults. Highly recommended.

My husband and I went to try something new. It was a lot of fun and good exercise. The facility is clean and safe and the staff was friendly and patient with us as first-timers.

Staff is sooo nice! It's something fun to do rather than sit at home. It is great for kids and really doesn't matter your skill level! I highly recommend going.
