Little pricey for our 1 hour visit, but our kids needed some active time.
Staff was super friendly, space was large.
Youngest is more daring & was disappointed he had to either belay or not climb higher than his head. (As was I to be honest, he’s had lessons and knows what he’s doing, but I understand the liability.)
An hour wore them out $47
Wish we had one of these in fargo.

If your a grandparent make sure you are able to get the waivers signed by the parents. We were visiting from Illinois - had our 7 year old grand daughter with us - and she wasn't able to use the facilities as I wasn't the parent or legal guardian - I disagree - she was in my care many miles away from home...

While babysitting our grandkids, we visited the Spire Climbing gym. For a all day fee we were able to spend the entire day, if we so desired, at the gym. Carrisa did a wonderful job of explaining Climbing protocol for myself and the kids. We spent 2 hrs then took a lunch break. We returned in the late afternoon and the kids climbed for another 3 hrs.

My only complaint was the staff not informing me of several birthday parties and a competition which was taking place on the day we visited.
I had stopped by earlier in the week to get information and no mention was made. Also the female counter attendant (working Sat Sept 30 evening) could improve her skills when customers arrive. When I approached the counter she didn't greet me, just pointed her finger in the direction of another staff person. I wasn't impressed.
Carrisa could give her a few pointers!

Such a great place to have a birthday party. All the workers were so attentive to a group of active 4-5 year olds. Great room to set-up snacks and party decor. Wonderful set-up for adventurous young ones. Parents don't have to do much. Shoes and gear provided. Highly recommend.

We visit Spire fairly regularly. If we lived in the Bozeman area, we would definitely get a membership. Great physical activity that everyone can enjoy. Want to top rope but don't have a belay partner? No worries, they have several auto belay systems located around the gym. Since they expanded a couple years ago the number of routes is amazing. Tons of walls for boulder, many top rope routes set up, and lots of places to work on lead climbing. Great activity any time of year. The staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable making sure that you can safely enjoy your time in the gym.

The indoor climbing at Spire will keep you strong and flexible. The routes are set on a regular basis and the staff does an exceelent job at keeping things clean. If you are a member you get a discount at the pro shop.
Great place with a nice sense of community.

The climbing gym is spacious, and well laid out. A great mix of bouldering, top rope and sport routes. Grading of the routes is accurate and appropriate.

Staff at the gym were great. Our family enjoyed the climbing for the better part of an afternoon.
Lots of windows allowed the sunlight into the gym and the views of the mountains were inspiring.

If you want to climb big indoor walls on your way to your favorite climbing destination, this is the gym to do it.

My 9 yr old daughter wanted her birthday party at Spire even though we'd never even been inside before. I cannot begin to express how happy I am with this place. It was a busy Friday night but the two staff that were helping out (Marcus and Griffin) could not have been better - friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and did a great job with the kids. For two young men with a group of mostly 9 yr old girls, they didn't act like they had better things to do or start looking at their watches to see when the party was going to be over. Everyone from the time we walked in was helpful. I would highly recommend this place for birthday parties (your kids will leave exhausted and happy), a fun night out, or any kind of climbing you're wanting to get into. Thank you, Spire, for making my daughter's birthday so amazing.

We had such great guidance and so much fun. We entered and were amazed how large and great it was put together. We got great training to learn the correct way to climb and enjoyed 4 hours worth of fun filled climbing. Is great for all ages and all types of people. Will travel to Bozeman just to visit Spire Climbing Center again.

As part of our family vacation to Yellowstone this year, my wife and sister and I hired a climbing guide to take us to one of the local crags. We contacted Spire ahead of time, and Lindsay Fixmer worked with us via email to plan a full day of climbing at a crag just north of Bozeman.

We ended up having a great time! Lindsay's a perfect guide: she's knowledgable, an excellent climber, comfortable teaching safe techniques, and very encouraging.

Climbing outdoors with Lindsay at Spire was definitely the highlight of our trip, and I heartily recommend them if you're looking to do some climbing in the Bozeman area.

Note: Their rental harnesses are perfectly safe but don't have gear loops, I'd suggest bringing your own if you want to sport lead.
