Beginner or V6 and 5.11/lead they have it. Alot of fun and everyone is friendly and supportive. Great place to put the world aside and just concentrate on that next move.

I'm a beginner but there were still a lot of routes accessible to me. They also have an adequate fitness center with treadmills, a couple of cyles, an erg, some weights, a slack line, and rings (almost a XFit box as they have bumper plates)....More

I cannot say enough good things about this gym. For first time climbers, try open climb - you will get equipment and a staff member to belay and give you tips. As your experience grows, you will have no trouble finding routes at every level....More

This is a huge gym with great amenities. The walls are well layed out and there is a ton of space for bouldering. The only thing I don't like is that most of the climbs are on slanted walls, which are not good for beginners.
