At Boulders Climbing Gym, stone-scalers navigate more than 8,000 square feet of climbing walls marked by steep overhangs. After picking up their shoes, harnesses, chalk bags, and belay devices, beginners learn basic climbing techniques in about 15 minutes before ascending the heights and safely handling the ropes. Made-in-house clay holds lend a dose of authenticity not found in common plastic or marshmallow holds. With the one-month membership, climbers get unlimited drop-in time during open hours, as well as additional benefits such as discounted classes, savings at the pro shop, and a new pool of recruits for mountaintop book clubs.
Geared-up groups of 15 (aged 4+) can gather at the base of looming indoor crags for a brief introduction to belay before taunting gravity with defiant upward clambering. Reserved for a half-hour of use, a party room outfitted with disposable plates and utensils awaits victorious wall-scramblers as they devour food and refreshments brought from home. Alternatively, celebrants can substitute extra climb time for party-room access by extending 1.5-hour sessions to a full two hours.

About Boulders Climbing Gym
In 1996, a group of climbers wanted to create a safe space where they could regularly experience the adrenaline rush of scaling walls while sharing that passion with the community. In turn, they erected more than 8,000 square feet of climbing surface area at Boulders Climbing Gym. It's marked by steep overhangs and dappled with clay holds that are made in-house, which give the walls a sense of authenticity with respect to common holds made out of plastic or recycled cereal marshmallows. Able to accommodate climbers of all ages and experience levels, the gym’s walls facilitate three types of climbing ranging from roped-in lead climbing to bouldering, a more freestyle brand of climbing. Before beginners head to climb, Boulders’ expertly trained staff dedicate about 15 minutes to teach basic climbing techniques such as safely handling the ropes and executing flawless Spiderman impressions. Along with free-climbing sessions, Boulders also offers a host of programs and classes that include everything from yoga to team building to kid’s summer camps. Guests can also by book a party room to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions.
