The Apex Center rock wall is your entry point into rock climbing.

No gear and no experience are required. Come and let our instructors introduce you to the exciting world of climbing. Our 25-foot climbing wall has three auto-belays and 11 top rope routes, providing opportunities for all levels of climbers. We aim to be an easy entry point for rock climbing. We provide the basic equipment at no extra charge and can provide complementary belaying during most open climb times.

Open Climbing

Our open climb times allow anyone to climb on our wall while supervised. If you are already experienced in climbing, our instructors can conduct a belay certification test and issue a belay card, allowing you to belay your friends and family.

For private lessons and rock climbing classes, please visit the Rock Climbing page.

If you are new to climbing and want to learn to belay, take the Introduction to Climbing class.
