Bouldering

Bouldering is rock climbing without ropes below a set height limit. Because there are no ropes, boulder routes or "problems" often trend side to side and not just straight up and down. Many people enjoy bouldering on its own because it can be done without a partner and the problems can often be challenging on a shorter wall.

Auto-Belay

Auto-belays require no previous experience to use, they’re a great tool to get climbing on your own. Rent a harness to use and get a quick orientation to get climbing. Children under 13 need to be supervised on the auto-belays by an adult who has done an orientation.

Training Area

Setup to fulfill your all your training needs. Complete with a variety of workout equipment from a squat rack and weights to hangboards, campus board, and a fully adjustable Kilter Board. Come in and check it out!

Knights of the Kilter

General Info

 

Knights of the Kilter is an elimination style 1v1 climbing challenge on the Kilter Board, running October 29th which is our “lights out night” meaning the only lights on the wall will be from the Kilter Board.

Each competitor will face off with another on the same climb (chosen by the king) at a 15° wall angle. If both complete it on their first try, we increase the angle 10° until one of them can’t finish it. The winner will move on to the next round and continue until we have an overall champion.

This is a free, fun competition and will have no gender categories. Signup below!
