It is perfect for young kids. When I went there to use my groupon. I saw it was for young kids not big adult kid like myself & my 19 yr. old daughter.

We have been there several times, and it has always been a good experience. You see both adults and children, and the staff is always pleasant. You received basic instructions the first time, but you are left to progress at your own pace. Harness rentals are $5 and are not included with the Groupon. Our son likes to use a harness and also boulder. It's a good place to get an introduction to rock climbing, as it has padded floors, rather than the outdoors where it is hard and more dangerous.

We took our 3 year old to climb and she enjoyed it. We put her in the harness and let her free climb as well. The staff was really nice and helpful. We look forward to going back.

An excellent experience for my visiting grandchildren who had been taking climbing classes. Their parents also had a great time climbing the walls for their first time! The grandparents enjoyed being able to sit & watch.

From Our Editors

Spanning 4,000 square feet, the climbing surfaces at First Avenue Rocks mimic the natural textures of the abundant local sandstone boulder terrain. One hundred varied climbing routes up to 17 feet high greet climbers who choose to ascend by bouldering without ropes on angled walls and roofs dotted with challenging foot-and handholds or on the facility’s ropes courses. For safety, the facility positions its vertical terrain above the floor’s 10-inch-deep Asana pads for soft landings in the event of missed holds or misguided urges to fly. Instructors are available to prep students of all ages and ability levels to tackle the gym's terrain, teaching three stages of introductory climbing courses and two advanced lead-climbing courses.
