Greetings and instruction make you feel at ease. Nice facility. Decent variety. Good spaces for *observers*, too. Challenges for newbies and experienced climbers of all ages.
very nice and helpful staff. My children had lots of fun! Highly recommended.
Bought it for my daughter & her boyfriend, they had a great time!
My 9 year old daughter had lots of fun. Employees were very nice and patient for my first time climber!
Bring water or drinks. They have a fountain but you will want some. Plan on spending longer than you anticipated. You have to take breaks in between climbs. Good family fun.
It is not the easiest place to find if you are not aware of the area. Thankfully GPS took us right to it. Great staff, very friendly. Had a blast...
Wear long socks, use chalk sock frequen
We went to the climb on Sunday Dec. 27 and had a great time. The staff was not only very kind but very encouraging to help us get to our climbing goals!! My am 49 a bit out of shape, but I was able to climb even the more challenging walls. My 12 year old son, with much encouragement from our instructor make his climbing goals. My other son was able to do the time challenge wall in 10.13 sec. We would do this again!!!

It would be tough for a climber to get bored at Climb Lafayette. The indoor climbing facility offers two primary modes of climbing: top rope and bouldering. From there, climbing routes can take any number of twists and turns.
Top roping is the variety that people most commonly associate with rock climbing. Climbers are strapped into a harness and scale tall, vertical walls. Bouldering, on the other hand, challenges climbers to solve complex, low-to-the-ground routes—known as "problems"—without a harness or even a G.I. Joe parachute. Climb Lafayette has more than 50 top-rope routes and more than 80 bouldering problems offered at any one time, giving climbers plenty to think about as they work their way through the wide range of difficulty ratings offered in the facility.
Should climbers stumble, 14 inches of foam padding covers the floor to catch them and prevent most injuries. That padding is made in the USA, but the walls themselves originated even closer to home. The owners, staying true to their Lafayette roots, had the walls constructed of locally sourced materials, right down to the steel studs.
