Came here while visiting Burlington. The gym offers affordable prices for a day pass. Only 12 bucks. There are three areas of bouldering, and two of the three are overhanging roofs! The floors are covered in a lot of chalk, so make sure to wear clothes you don't mind becoming white from chalk. There is a small workout area with... More

We had a great privately guided rock climbing adventure with Tim from Petra Cliffs. A first class professional climber, he was a great guide for our family of four. A great learning experience of how to tie into the climbing ropes, how to belay the climber, and he went through each step with us as beginners. We did three great... More

Brought the kids here on a bitterly cold day. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and kids had a great time with several levels of difficulty.

My 3 teenagers and husband tried their hand at indoor rock climbing at Petra. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave my family initial instruction and let them go! My family had a great time.

When my doughter and her friend went to the summer camp they had so much fun! By the time the week was over she was begging me to go for the rest of the summer!

I've only ever climbed in an indoor gym in pittsburgh, (I'm from Erie) and this gym far surpassed it! The staff are super friendly and laid back, and everyone is always ready to welcome you with a smile. It is a bit pricy if you don't have your own equipment or are a beginner, but overall it's worth it for... More

My son has attended this camp 5 years in a row now. He has learned so much about outdoor sports. Climbing, ropes courses, sailing, caving, etc. Totally worth it!

Great instruction gets you up to speed quickly. Then it's all about challenging yourself on various courses up the walls. The equipment they use here is easy and convenient compared to other climbing walls I've experienced. Highly recommended for a family outing, or a personal workout or challenge.
