- $40 for an introduction-to-climbing package for two ($90 value)
First-time climbers learn basic climbing techniques as well as how to operate safety ropes and tie knots in a one-hour class. Then, climbers practice skills on their own with the included equipment rental and day pass.
- $45 for a family introduction-to-climbing package ($99 value)
Two adults take a climbing lesson that includes instruction on safety. As the adults focus on their lesson, staff members belay for two children, aged 4–13. When the introductory course concludes, adults and children meet up and enjoy all-day access to rental equipment and the gym's climbing terrain. Children aged 16 or 17 can participate as adults with a waiver signed by their legal guardian.
All introductory classes are scheduled from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on weeknights and all day on weekends.
