We had my sons Birthday party here and the facility was so clean. The amount of staff on the floor helping all the kids made it extremely easy on me and made it possible for the kids to all go on the walls they wanted to. We had a couple nervous climbers and staff members brought them over to walls that were easier for them. They took over the cleaning in the party room as well. It was a great experience from start to finish. Thank you!

We had a great time at Clip ‘N Climb. They have a great variety of climbing walls for kids and adults of all ages. Their clip-in system is very easy to operate although as an adult you feel like the rope won’t catch your fall like it does the kids when they come back down but I think that is just me being paranoid.

The bouldering is 3 stars because the routes are good but the the wall is really short, change room is cramped & routes are too one dimensional (all crimpy) but the upstairs top rope fantastic looking and I can’t wait to get my certification. (They have belay courses as well)

—Phillip S, Google Reviews

Plenty of walls for bouldering, no traverse option like vertically inclined in the south end. 6 levels of difficulty, so you’re bound to find something at or above your comfort zone.

I was very busy from 2-4pm, but climbers were very polite and let others go before attempting again.

—Frank Simpson, Google Reviews
