Such a wonderful place. Great for first time climbers as well as experts. You will always find a new wall to challenge you. Their leaping lemurs program (for younger kids) was so much fun!

Great place, vibrant with activity but not crowded (might be because it huge!). Our Scouts loved this 2-hour stop on our way to Vermont to ski. Hana was extremely helpful getting us registered and on the boulders. Wish there was one closer to home.
