Getting Started

First things first – all climbers need a valid waiver to enter the climbing area at Stone Gardens.  If you are under 18 years of age this waiver must be signed by your parent or court appointed legal guardian. The Waiver can be completed online ahead of time or upon your first visit to the gym. Once you have a valid waiver on file with us it is valid at both locations.


All visitors are expected to read, understand and follow Stone Gardens Rules at all times. Please click on the link to read them over before your first visit and see our Staff with any questions.

Getting started on your own

Adults and youths ages 14 and up are always welcome to boulder in the gym. Bouldering is climbing without a rope and you can do it in a group or alone.  With the purchase of a day pass and a pair of rental shoes you can explore climbing on your own.  You can do this anytime that the gym is open for any duration of time.  If you are looking for a last minute activity bouldering is a great option. 

Climbing with Youth under age 14

 Please see our Youth Policy.

Getting Started with an Instructor

If you prefer to have one of our instructors introduce you to climbing, call our front desk to book a Pro-Belay.  Our Pro-Belay is a great way to climb for the first time.  Your group of up to four climbers can take turns climbing while our instructor manages the rope.  All gear is included in this session.  There is no age minimum for this activity.  See our Youth Instruction page. 

You can also get started by taking our Climbing 101 class.  This class covers equipment, tying in, climbing commands, belaying and safety. This class includes a two week membership in the gym to allow you to practice your new found skills. See our Adult Instruction page.
