We offer three different climbing options: bouldering, auto-belayed climbing, top-rope climbing. Currently, our terrain is primarily bouldering. We have top-rope climbing and auto-belayed climbing available in a room designed for small groups, parties, and instruction. Climbers are welcome in this area, subject to availability.
Bouldering and auto-belayed climbing do not require special certification. To top-rope belay and to lead belay, participants must pass a certification test.
For $5, visitors ages 12+ may sign up for an optional on-the-spot, 10-15 minute top-rope belay clinic, facilitated by our front-desk staff. After you complete this clinic, you’ll take the top-rope belay test. These on-demand clinics are offered based on staff availability.
All first-time visitors are required to complete a waiver. Filling out a waiver before you arrive will save you 10 minutes. Waivers must be filled out by the state-appointed legal guardian of each climber. If your child is climbing with a friend, be sure to fill out the form online before they arrive.
Answer some common questions before you arrive.
Be sure to check out our Safety & Policies page to learn about our temporary COVID-19 policies.
Adults and kids should wear athletic clothing. If you’ll be wearing a harness, we recommend wearing longer shorts or pants. Your clothing should have enough stretch so that you can reach those far-away holds!
We do not require the use of climbing shoes, but if you opt out of renting/wearing them, you’ll need to be sure to wear closed-toe, athletic shoes instead. First-time visitors ages 12+ receive climbing shoes for free (rental is normally $5).
We have open cubbies available for you to stash your personal items. We also have lockers in the restroom.
Harness - Participant must put on a harness correctly, per the specifications of the harness manufacturer.
Climber - Participant must demonstrate how to properly clip the climbing-side rope to the belay-loop side of their harness.
Belayer - Participant must properly set up an approved belay device per manufacturers’ specifications.
Technique - Participant must demonstrate a proficiency in top-rope belaying. The belayer’s brake hand must remain in constant control of the brake strand of the rope. Belayer must immediately and properly catch at least two simulated top-rope falls and lower safely while keeping the brake hand below the belay device.
Checks - Participant must provide a double-check that carabiners are locked and attached correctly to the harness and equipment.
Everyone who visits our facilities must participate in a full gym orientation. This orientation includes a safety video and an overview of general facility information. You’ll also need time to get outfitted with your harness and climbing shoes.
Please come back and visit us anytime with a day pass. We recommend signing up for a 10-visit pass if you’re considering joining our community. Of course, you can always sign up for membership to get unlimited access to all of our Triangle Rock Club locations.
