There are a few lockers and one shower but it's very tight quarters in there. However their climbing walls are set up well and changed frequently and they have a medium sized gym with some cardio and weights.

Staff can be condescending however if you are just looking for an intro then by all means. They have a small variety of equipment for you to purchase; the walls are nothing special, so don't expect lots of options, and good luck on crowded days.

I like to try out new rock gyms while traveling and was super excited for earth treks because I had heard such good things about it. The bouldering area lacked a true roof and was not particularly large. The staff was slightly condescending. Overall, not...More
