Operating as usual


- Did they take down your project too soon? *GASP*
- Did they make you dyno? *CLUTCHES PEARLS*
- Did they confront you with a climb that worked on a weakness of yours which in turn made you a more well rounded climber but you never want to do that route again and you'll never admit you actually had a lot of fun and felt the kind of endorphin rush you haven't felt since being chosen as the line leader in 3rd grade? (THE AUDACITY)
There, there, we've got you.
During our Lincoln anniversary (June 22nd from 6-9 pm), we'll be running a setter's dunk tank as one of the events. For $3, you can get 5 attempts at dunking your favorite setter as ice cold revenge.

We'll be doing the same for Omaha on July 27th, so don't forget to practice your aim!

Lincoln Appreciation Post ❤️

Here's to all of the MW staff - past and present - that has been a huge part of what makes MW Lincoln so great today.

How has it been 3 years?

Of course we’ve got to celebrate big this year especially with TWO Summer anniversaries! We’ll be hosting the same deals and events at both locations, with:


There’s nothing like a good ‘ol Summer cookout. We’ll supply the hotdogs and essentials, and you can bring a side to share and good vibes.

Get in on this sweet deal on each anniversary date only. Excludes food/drinks.

Join us for a birthday climb! Purchased passes may only be used for 6/22 and 7/27.

We’ll do a swag giveaway for a lucky someone who checks in at Lincoln on 6/22 and at Omaha on 7/27! (This is an in-person giveaway, so don’t be fooled by any bots that send you DMs)

We’ll set up climbing obstacles and games throughout the gym for you to challenge yourself and your friends.

Need we say more? $5/teams of 2 and winning duo takes all.

Do you secretly carry disdain for a particular setter’s sets? Like… they’re the best setter because they challenge you but also they’re the WORST because THE AUDACITY.

Now is your opportunity for revenge. For $3, you get 5 chances to get your revenge by DUNKING THEM IN THE DUNK TANK we’re bringing to the party. Practice that throwing arm now.

We’re so stoked to celebrate many more years with the MW community. Flip through the photos to reminisce about pre-MW Lincoln/construction part 1 (and also Bryce’s luscious hair).

Starting today, we’ve got new hours for MW Omaha, opening at 9 AM every day!

Our closing hours will remain the same: 6 PM on Sunday and 10 PM for the rest of the week.



From now through the end of May, get 10% off a prepaid annual membership for primary members AND add-on memberships! Offer can be redeemed online or in-person at both locations.

Starting June 1st, we will be restructuring our pricing structure for day passes, punch passes, and memberships in an effort to keep up with increasing operation costs and inflation.

❗️Price increases will apply to NEW memberships & passes purchased on June 1st and onward❗️

Anyone who purchases a member BEFORE June 1st will retain their current pricing as long as the membership stays ACTIVE. If the membership is cancelled/unpaid, new memberships will restart at the new pricing.

Any member (existing or new) will get 15% off one pair of shoes from our gear shop made starting on June 1st. Promo is available once per person.


We’re back for another techniques workshop but this time at MW Lincoln!

Learn the mechanics of how certain types of footwork can help make a tricky climb a breeze.

We’re talking foot matches, inside and outside flags, heel hooks, toe hooks, high steps, how to step on small chips vs volumes.

Whether you’ve been climbing for a few weeks or a few months, we guarantee that your footwork gains are basically going to have you go from climbing VB to v10+.

For legal responsible reasons, this class doesn’t actually guarantee that you’ll climb v10 after taking it but we also can’t guarantee that it couldn’t happen even though it’s very unlikely. We do know that it’s a fantastic class taught by Rhi and Zoe ♥️

Registration is required so make sure to visit the link in our bio for more info or


Summer Youth Programs begin next Monday (May 13th)!

Our program focuses on developing and strengthening problem solving skills, team building, and climbing ability. Climbers stay active while playing climbing games that challenge endurance, coordination, and balance.

To learn more and register, please visit our website:



Starting May 13th, MW Omaha will adjust hours to open every day at 9 AM, which means you early risers can get your climb in.

Monday - Saturday: 9 AM - 10 PM
Sunday: 9 AM - 6 PM

Bonus podium pics of the new owners of some custom MW hardware 🥇🥈🥉


Your Gym Jam Setting Team 👏🏼

(Not pictured but also set bangers: Justin Hoich and Phu Hong)

These humans set their little bootays off for 4 straight days and created what can only be described as the best boulders that have ever been set in the world🔥😜

Without this team’s hard work and passion for climbing, we couldn’t have pulled it off - so thank you!

Also there are more sets up at MW Omaha, so come get them while they’re fresh!

Honestly, it was near impossible to pick our 10 favorite photos of the Gym Jam Finals Round because everyone looks SO GOOD (props to Zoe Hass 📸 - everyone go compliment her for all of these masterpieces).

We were able to get good separation and see the superhuman strength these seasoned climbers have. Congrats to Kaija & Sean, who took home the gold this year! 🥇
