Overview

Central Rock Gym has options for experienced, new, or young climbers! You can reserve a slot with rental gear and staff to help you try it out, take a class to learn the ropes for the high walls, jump on the lower bouldering walls with no prior experience necessary, or bring your own gear and just get a day pass. This facility has day passes and memberships for bouldering, top-rope climbing, and lead-climbing.
