What is the age limit for climbing?
Any child and/or adult can climb, but you should consult a physician if you have specific questions about your health, relating to climbing. Our head instructor likes to say “If you can climb a ladder, you can climb a wall!”
What should I wear?
You can wear any clothes you’re comfortable working out in. Some climbers prefer pants to prevent scrapes and scuffs.
What climbing gear do I need?
Climbing shoes are mandatory, because they are specifically designed to fit tightly, and are sticky on the outside, which enables easier and more efficient climbing. Harnesses are required for using auto belays, top rope, and lead climbing; but not bouldering. All gear is available for rent on a first come first serve basis.
What is bouldering?
Bouldering is a style of climbing done on shorter walls, usually 16’ or lower. Feel free to ask any member of our staff for a bouldering orientation.
What is Top Rope?
Top Rope climbing is when the climber is tied into an end of the rope, the rope goes up to an anchor (a belay bar) and back down to the Belayer. All belayers must be belay certified by taking mandatory belay test. Learn to Belay classes are available.
What is an auto belay and do I need to take a class?
An auto belay is a device which allows a climber to top rope climb without a partner. To get started using our auto-belays, please ask the front desk for a mandatory orientation.
Does Rock’Em Extreme offer Lead climbing?
Yes! We have 21 Lead/TR lanes. All lead climbers and lead belayers must be Lead certified at our facility by taking a mandatory test. Lead climbing classes are available.
Why does Rock'em Extreme have a code of conduct?

A lot, because climbing helps build confidence, focus and problem solving skills, all necessary elements to building positive healthy relationships, rather than negative ones.
