Facilities & Hours



Bouldering is a great introduction to rock climbing. Climbers stay closer to the ground so there is no need for ropes and extra equipment. Bouldering is also a perfect way to combine exercise with fun.

Bouldering Area Hours:

  • Mon & Fri - 11AM to 11PM
  • Wed - 7AM to 11PM
  • Tue & Thur - 3PM to 11PM
  • Sat & Sun - 10AM to 6PM

Top-Rope/Lead Climbing

When top-roping/lead climbing, the climber is attached to a rope by a harness. The belayer, the person who manages the rope, protects the climber in the event of the fall. Conquering the challenges presented by our top-roping routes requires both problem solving and endurance. We set a variety of climbs on our top rope walls to suit all skill levels.

Rope Climbing Area Hours:

  • Mon thru Fri - 5PM to 10:30PM
  • Sat & Sun - 12PM to 5:30PM
