Our boulders are set with color-coded holds called Bouldering Circuits, where the color of the circuit represents difficulty. Our Bouldering Circuits are designed to reflect progression in climbing, and create a way to navigate our boulders with an open mind, letting you put aside the expectations of success or failure.

Climbing Classes

There’s a lot to learn in climbing. We have classes we’d recommend for this.

Our instructors are our staff — they’re all obsessed with climbing. They’ll introduce you to bouldering and the facility and help you get better at climbing, faster.

Climbing classes mix it up — instruction, fun, challenge, success, failure, laughter, and maybe the occasional swear word.
