You have questions? Let's answer them! 

What is bouldering?

Bouldering is rock climbing, without using ropes or harnesses, on climbs that don’t go too high off the ground. Our climbing walls range from 12 to 16 feet tall. We also have a toddler wall that is 8 feet tall.  There are thick mats under the walls to land on. Climbing is a fun activity that offers a combination of aerobic and anaerobic exercise and is challenging not only physically, but mentally. Climbing uses almost every muscle in your body from your arms, shoulders, hands, legs, feet, hips and core. Climbing also works your brain. Climbing sequences require mental strategy of movement and body awareness. Each climbing route is given a number grade from beginner to advanced. It’s easy to stay motivated and track your progress as you improve in your climbing ability. Climbing also provides a great social aspect for both individuals and families.

 

Do I need to have prior climbing experience before I climb at Climberz?

No. We have walls and routes for every level of experience. We have plenty of beginner routes you’ll enjoy working through. If you can climb a ladder, you can climb on our bouldering walls. That’s what is so great about climbing, anyone can do it. Once you’ve mastered our beginning routes, we also have several intermediate and advanced routes waiting for you to try.

 

What is the Climbing Rating System?

Climberz set routes and problems based off of the Hueco Scale. This system describes the difficulty level of the climb in combination with a scaled rating number from Beginner to Elite.

 

Boulder Problems:

VB - Beginner

V0-V4 - Intermediate

V5-V9 - Advanced

V10 +  - Elite

 

What should I do before my first visit?

All Visitors to Climberz who will be entering the climbing area of the facility whether climbing or spectating are required to complete a Waiver. Before visiting our facility, be sure to fill out a Waiver. Completing the Waiver prior to arriving to climb will save you time and get you climbing faster.

If you forget to complete the Waiver online prior to coming to Climberz, no worries, you can access and complete the Waiver from your cell phone or on our Kiosk when you arrive. Keep in mind, if you are bringing a child and you are not their parent or guardian, arrange to have the Waiver completed by their parent or guardian.
