The 4,000-square-foot climbing arena at First Avenue Rocks challenges climbers of all skill levels with 100 boulder-style rock faces, which earned a spot on Birmingham Magazine's Best of Birmingham list in 2010. Armed with proper shoes, climbers free from harnesses explore 15-foot bouldering routes above a 10-inch plush Asana safety pad. Skyward skimmers can propel themselves up each faux-rock face–designed to mimic local sandstone slabs–by grasping complex climbing shapes, natural-looking cracks, or tiny plungers. Upon reaching indoor summits, alpinists can grasp smooth handrails and maneuver onto the top out deck for yodeling or freefall to the safety pad below. To keep climbing fun for all ages, kid-friendly top-rope routes welcome climbers of all experience levels, enabling upward races between toddlers and parents or toddlers and pet mountain goats.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Gym is very cool and our kids loved it.

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.
