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.

Intro To Bouldering Movement

Intro To Bouldering Movement is intended for those looking to improve their core climbing technique, or those not yet comfortable climbing the purple circuit (V3-V4). It’s goal is to give students an understanding of basic climbing movements and how to apply them.

These concepts will provide a foundation for the more complex movements that occur at higher grades. They will also be introduced to the mental aspects of climbing and how they affect climbing performance. Students should be able to leave the class with an idea of what good, technical movement is and how to practice these movements on their own.

Classes are free with your day pass, punch card, or membership. Don’t have a waiver on file? Complete our online waiver, here.
