Climbing Facilities

This gym gets a 4 out of 5 for its climbing facilities. It is a relatively small bouldering only gym, but it has many differently sloped walls to provide for a good training experience. An interesting thing about the walls here is that they are covered in a very slick surface, there is absolutely no way to smear. Your footwork is essential and provides an entirely different training experience. There is plenty of climbing wall space and a range of different problems. The flooring is soft with a felt/carpet like feel to it. Very comfortable to lay on and to fall on to. This gym also had a treadwall.

Fitness Area

The fitness area get a 2 out of 5. The workout area is almost non-existent. It is located on the topout and is very limited and small. There is a small rig for dips, leg raises and pull-ups. This could maybe only be used for a few body weight exercises at most.

Locker Rooms/ Bathrooms

The bathrooms here get a 3 out of 5. There are two unisex bathrooms in the back. They were fairly basic restrooms. There weren't any showers or locker rooms.


This gym gets a 5 out of 5 for it's parking. I was there at 7 at night during the week and there was plenty of parking that was close by. It could have been one of the best parking situations I have seen.

General Ambiance

This gym gets a 5 out of 5 for it's ambiance and general vibe. The whole side is completely open so there is lots of fresh air. There were a ton of cubbies for your things. Most of the gym is fairly young people between 18 and 30 and It isn't very crowded. The staff were also really laid back and were walking around and talking with different members throughout the night.
