No experience is necessary to start climbing!
UpTown Staff provides all first time visitors with an orientation and you will be climbing on our boulder and auto belays in no time. We encourage you to read our FAQs.
Or take our Top Rope Skills class to gain access to over 50 ropes.
ALL visitors must complete our Visitor Agreement whether climbing or not. We recommend you do it online, in advance.
Who Can Climb?
So long as no objections from your doctor, almost anybody. Our auto-belay devices have an operating limit between 40 and 340 pounds. So that covers just about everybody who can fit into a harness. Parents can bring in the younger ones separately but kids must be at least 3 years old and 30 pounds, and there is very limited climbing area for the littlest ones. The minimum age for children’s parties is seven years old.
PARENTS MUST CLOSELY MONITOR ALL CHILDREN AND ENSURE THEY FOLLOW OUR RULES.
