Do I need to fill out a waiver?
Of course you do. Everyone who comes to Summit is required to fill out a waiver. Climbers under 18 years of age must have the waiver and orientations signed by their parent or court-appointed guardian. Click to fill out a waiver.
Do I need to show photo ID?
Yes you do. After you fill out a waiver, we just need to make sure that everything checks out.
I'm new to climbing, can I just drop in and start climbing?
With the exception of the waiver and facility orientation, anyone can just come in to climb. During the facility orientation, we will teach you how to use all of the equipment that is set up at our gyms. To pay, you can purchase a day pass or get a membership. With a Summit membership you can climb or do yoga at all four of our locations. Click to view pricing info.
What is belaying?
Belaying is the act of managing the rope to protect a climber. The belayer is there to control the slack in the safety system, catch a climber if they fall, and lower them down when they’re finished climbing. It’s a crucial skill to learn and refine, and one of the first skills we teach in our facility orientation.
What is bouldering?
All Summit Climbing Gyms have extensive bouldering areas. Bouldering is unroped climbing on shorter walls ranging from 13 to 16 feet high. While you don’t need any previous climbing experience to boulder, to reduce the chance of injury we strongly encourage new climbers to experience roped climbing first. Bouldering involves increased inherent risks because YOU WILL FALL, and all falls are ground falls that could result in serious injury.
Do you have auto-belays?
In fact we do! Auto-belays are a great way to climb to the top of our walls when you have no one to belay you. During the facility orientation we will show you have to properly use the auto-belays.
How much does it cost?
There are lots of entrance fee options depending on how often you’re climbing. We offer memberships, day passes, 5 visit passes, and monthly passes.
