Nicest People!
Mar 2021
I've been to rock gyms all over the USA. This is one of the smaller ones, but has the nicest people. The grading is also on the tougher end (but still has plenty of beginner friendly options) so don't let your ego get too hurt.

Animal rescue!
Apr 2019 • Friends
More animal holds, please! =D

We visited this climbing centre recently and were amazed at how easy it was to start climbing.

Many of the routes had auto-belay systems which beginners or solo climbers can rock up (excuse the pun), clip on by yourself and just start climbing without having to book in advance.

There were also routes for manual belay and bouldering, but we as beginners just stuck with the auto system routes, these ones had various levels of difficulty - so the only difference is that you don't need to know how to tie knots or have someone else belaying for you. Although there is the initial drop of half a foot to get used to before the mechanism catches you, once you're used to the feeling then feels secure.

There was this parent and child who played a game where they used the animal holds as markers, and they'd pretend to be rescuing them on the way up. We had never seen this feature before and it definitely provided great entertainment and encouragement to the top. So my suggestion would be to have more walls with these, please! =D

We had a great time, 10/10 will go again.

Great Fun

Super friendly staff, great facility and fun/challenging walls to work on. The auto-belay option was perfect for our first visit to the climbing center. We did go during Xmas break on a rainy day and got a full house by 2pm but everyone worked together to get time climbing. Looking forward to checking it out again on my next visit to the area.

Climb to The Top
May 2018 • Couples
My bf and I really like that this place have auto belays. So people don't have to rely on others to belay them. This place has a pretty good amount of walls for all types of climbers. We visited the gym today (Saturday) and there was a decent size crowd. But we didn't feel like it was packed where we had to wait around for a wall. We spoke to about 5 different staffs and they were all very friendly and helpful. After we signed the electronic waiver, we each got shoes and a harness. A staff member showed us how to put on the harness and how to use the belay system. In less than 5 minutes, we were already climbing on our own. The part of the wall with rocks with no color tapes is the easiest to climb. The round disc at the top with the number is the auto belay system. Once you get to the top, you can tap the disc to indicate you got to the top. Inside the climbing area, there are open shelves on the seating area to place your belongings. And there are two vending machines, one for drinks (water/soda) and another for snacks. Another plus to this place is that you can climb for the entire day. We entered the place once they opened and left around noon to grab lunch. After lunch, we went back to climb some more. Not a lot of places (in general) allow for people to leave and return without paying for second admission. Wear a pair of old socks or dark socks cause the rental shoes will stain your socks blue. Can't wait to return!

Great for an indoor workout or rainy day fun!
Apr 2016 • Friends
Rockville climbing center is a nice change from my regular workouts. I have been here several times under different circumstances and it is always a great time! I have been her as a couple, with friends and even alone. The automatic belay systems they have installed are wonderful for those who don't have a climbing partner or come alone. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They are around to help and assist if needed. If you are looking for a fun date night or family outing, Rockville is a great place to visit!

Good fun for any age
Apr 2016 • Family
I've been taking my kids to Rockville since they were pretty young. I took the belay course right off the bat and the kids always had fun. Rockville has always been very welcoming and supportive on every visit. The staff makes sure you have what you need to be safe and have fun, but they don't get in your way. I'm 54 and I got on the wall for the first time just recently. I felt welcome even though my skills were rudimentary at best. By the end of the day I almost beat my son on an easy side-by-side race. :-) If you take your kids there, keep an open mind about trying it yourself!

Great place -- they exist to help their customers. They do it well.

After my son got a taste of rock climbing one summer, I took him to Rockville where he blossomed with moderate competence in his climbing and, more-importantly, got lots of new confidence in this challenging / interesting sport.

I can't say enough about how the owner and his staff organize themselves around making sure their customers have an enjoyable, safe and productive experience. They do "summer camps" for kids. Evening climbing sessions, all sorts of programs to get kids and adults climbing and having fun.

We still have the video (which the owner took and then sent to us) of my son overcoming his fear of heights and making it all the way to the top. The smile on his face after he rappelled down is/was priceless.

Nice climbing center for active fun
Jun 2015 • Family
We wanted to do something with our children (9, 15 and 21) that was active and fun. We surprised the kids and took them to Rockville climbing center. They had never been climbing before and with the instruction and automatic system it was easy and fun. You pay a flat fee and can climb as long as you like. We all had a really good time and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely go again.
