First Time Climbers
After walking through the door, recover from the sensory shock you experience because of how awesome this place is and continue to the front desk. Tell the friendly person behind the counter its your first time and you want the Whole Shibang. We may already have figured that out (the shock factor gives it away) but tell us anyway. We will have you fill out a liability waiver (everyone must fill out a waiver before they enter the climbing area). Anyone under 18 years of age must have their waiver initialed and signed by their legal guardian. You can print a waiver here. Once the paperwork is done we'll give you a harness and a pair of rock shoes. The first time you come we will give you The Orientation (takes about 15min). Anyone 14 yrs or older that wants to learn can take the optional The Belay Class. Day passes are good all day so you can leave and come back to climb some more!
What should I wear?
- Climbing is an active sport, you want full range of motion, wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in. No Dresses or skirts. We have rental rock shoes here so don't worry about the footwear.
What should I bring?
- We have all the necessary gear here. Outside snacks and drinks are fine, we don't have any for sale here. Don't forget to bring a "Can do" attitude!
How much does it cost?
- The cost varies by age and activity. See our rates page. Most first timers get the Whole Shibang which costs $20 per person (the Kids Whole Shibang is only $14 for anyone under 8yrs old).
How old do you have to be to climb at Boulders?
- "If you can walk you can climb." That saying works for young and old, there are no age parameters for climbing. Children under 8 get a discount. Children under 14yrs old can not be left here unattended unless they are participating in one of our youth programs.
