We’ve got NEW ROUTES!!! Make your reservation and come check em out!

Homeschool Club is full of action!

Here the kids are working on their matching skills playing a little game call Graffiti.

Can you match all those holds?

Have you been enjoying the change to mono-chromatic routes? Do you like the new holds? Us too!!!

We want to bring more new holds and routes to you but that fresh plastic is pretty expensive...

That's where hold-raiser 2020 comes in! Hold-Raiser is a funds matching fundraiser where we match every dollar donated up to $5500. With the additional funds we can ensure that we are able to purchase more holds which equals more routes for you to enjoy!!!

If you can donate, head on over to the front desk (with your mask on😅) or email [email protected] for a contact free donation.

Thanks for all your support! Our gym is only as great as its community and we are lucky ours is amazing!

We hope that all of you enjoy the last bits of nice weather before old man fall shows up and are sincerely grateful for your support and understanding. Thank you all for making our gym such an amazing place!!!!!

If you are seeing this:

1. The sun is finally out after one of the wettest summers on record.
