My kids and I have been climbing here for several years. The kids climbing team and coaching is top notch. Several kids go on to the National level every year. What a great workout for the non competitive climber too! Everybody from the staff to fellow climbers is eager to help, offer friendly climbing advice and to cheer you on.
