If you can climb well here then you will be able to climb well anywhere. This gym will require more skill and balance than other gyms in the metro-area. The holds are pretty old and most of them have no grip left on them. Also, lighting here is not the best.

Yes, this gym is a bit older, dingier, and a bit dim. That is because it is a climbing gym for CLIMBERS! This gym does not cater to field trips or birthday parties. It is a gym for someone who is serious about training for the real deal (trad of course). It is rarely crowded, is open late, and is largely sport (as opposed to TR). Also this gym has the highest quality routes of any gym in Colorado. It is worth going for the bouldering alone.

Clay is wrong,

I was doing birthday parties here since I was 11 years old. ;) Still going 20 years later.

Best in Denver. Greasy holds and grizzly climbers. You will learn a thing or two.
