“Interesting new experience...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Finally decided to try indoor rock climbing. It was easy to make a reservation and find the place. Once we got there staff is very nice and friendly. Our instructor Bobby was very patient and outgoing, making us feel confident as we were learning. Practicing on the "learning" wall was pretty easy and I was pretty excited. After the class was over we got to practice in real walls. There were few walls that were for beginners and since it was later in the day there were a lot of people. The place is not that big, not a huge problem, but you have to wait until others are done. My friend and I decided to try a couple of walls, but they were quite hard for beginners, so we only got about 1/3 of the way up. We will still return and practice more. Overall, a great experience. I recommend you try this place!!! :)

I've been a member of this gym for years now and love bringing friends (especially w/ kids) here to experience climbing. The staff are nice and helpful. A great alternative for activity in the area. :-)
