Wish they did a pass for 24 hours rather than a day.

Facility is clean. Lots of climbers. Friendly staff. Lots of options.

Wow, talk about a workout & trying to navigate up the wall in a path that works. Holding on with fingertips & my toes go where!? Can't wait to go back. Love the staff!

Upon arriving we explained to the gentlemen that we had little time. Unfortunately, you do usually have to be available for a class at a certain time of day. After hearing that we would have to leave before the class started, Adam acknowledged the environment of the gym and offered to give us a class so that we could climb with ropes before we needed to leave.

The class is manageable for anyone but also takes health and safety extremely seriously. Once we had finished the class we both felt confident that we had the support of staff if we required any assistance.

All the equipment, walls and ropes are well maintained and clean. The shoes are fairly uncomfortable but they're perfect for climbing, not designed for you to be walking down the high street in.

Our experience lasted approximately 3 hours and we felt this was plenty for us. Your pass offers you the entire day so if you'd like to stay all day you can. A great experience that I would recommend to any friends, families and couples that have the ability to take part in this level of physical practice.

This indoor rock gym is wonderful. They have lots of climbing choices from beginner to advanced, free climbing and roped. You need someone to belay you so that's a challenge if you're solo but they have clubs for that. It's not inexpensive to go either for a day or as a member but, honestly, they have real estate to pay for and staff to pay too. They have a great overnight program for youth (scouting) groups that is really fun.

CRCC is a great place to learn how to climb. The instruction is first-rate! Even if you know NOTHING about climbing, they will have you up and climbing in less than 1/2 hour. It's a fun, fitness building activity suitable for people and children of all ages. From beginner to expert, CRCC has all the walls suitable to your abilities. Definitely give it a try, even if you have never done it before.
