First Time Climbers

There’s a First Time for Everything!!!

PLEASE EXPECT 30-45 min before climbing on your 1st time in the gym. 

That’s Why We’re Here to Help you Along. No Previous Climbing Experience Necessary. Why not try it? You know you want to!

Waiver Required For Everyone to Enter Facility – Parent / Legal Guardian Must sign for Minors. PLEASE BRING VALID ID FOR ALL ADULT CLIMBERS.

So, this is your first-time venturing into the world of indoor rock climbing? Don’t worry we’ll be gentle. It’s not hard to learn to climb, but it’s important that you learn from an experienced instructor all of the necessary information. Check out our classes page and call us today to schedule a few!

After a liability waiver is on file, any person ages 14 and up can climb at Gripstone progressing through the challenges and types of climbing at their own pace.

Climbers under 14 years of age must be accompanied by a participating adult over 18 years of age (One -time belay buddy certification or standard Gripstone orientation required).

For ages 12 and 13, a special certification class is available which will allow them to participate with the same requirements of youth ages 14 and up.

Rock Climbing is a Full Body Workout.

You’ll work muscles you never knew you had.

Rock Climbing is FUN.

Your face may hurt from smiling so much.

Rock Climbing is Affordable.

Going to a movie is more expensive, and you just sit there.

Rock Climbing is for EVERYONE.

We’ve seen 5 year old climbers make adults look weak. We also have full body harnesses available for 5+ years old.
