Exposure Rock Climbing’s trainers hoist human confidence by imparting the basics of rock scaling to visiting neophytes or spotting experienced climbers through challenging trips up walls designed by USA Climbing–certified staff. Beginners lock eyes on an introductory video before taking to the looming cliffs and archways of faux rock dotted with colorful handholds. On-site instructors provide personal guidance and frequent leg-ups to first-timers, and the one-day pass arms scalers with shoes and a chalk bag to ease interactions with stones without carrying along a geologist translator. Each visit includes an essential harness to make climbing safe and adjust the forces of gravity to make it challenging.
The kids’ club after-school class enflames interest in sport scaling as youthful revelry wafts up through the air. Students learn the basics of climbing techniques and belaying, and an on-site gear shop outfits patrons with items guaranteed to be appreciated by mountaintop hermits.
Exposure Rock Climbing
Grasping hands constantly seek means of ascent as climbers scale the towering crags inside Exposure Rock Climbing's expansive gym. Route setters Kyle Clinkscales and Stan Borodyansky regularly put their USA Climbing certifications to good use, rearranging the colorful hand- and footholds that populate each wall to create fun and challenging routes that appeal to dedicated climbers and beginners alike.
The gym's experienced staff provides gravity-defying guidance during private lessons for climbers of all abilities and unlocks early interest in climbing with classes for juniors. The same savvy instructors have led Team Texas—Exposure Rock Climbing's competitive junior climbing team—to four USA Climbing national championships, including the 2012 title. The facility also hosts group and birthday-party packages and team-building programs for corporate workers, youth groups, and gravity deniers.
