What is Bouldering?
Bouldering is a type of rock climbing performed without harnesses or ropes. To boulder, you simply need a pair of climbing shoes!
Bouldering is dynamic, explosive movement packed into 14-16 foot routes. Our facility has 14-inch pads under the bouldering walls as well as strategically placed down-climb holds to help you climb down after reaching the top!

What is TOP-ROPE climbing?
Top Roping is a form of rock climbing where the climber ascends with the rope already through an anchor at the top. The climber is "belayed" by a partner as they ascend. Top Rope Climbing is optimal for beginners. A test is needed to top-rope belay at Contact - there is no charge for belay instruction or the belay test.
As a part of your entry fee, we'll teach you how to top-rope climb and belay.
What is Lead climbing?
Lead Climbing is a more advanced form of climbing where climbers bring the rope up with them as they climb. They clip into carabiners as they go, creating the possibility of a 6-10 foot fall (or more). Because of the inherent risk, a Lead Climbing Test is required for both the climber and the belayer to lead climb/belay at Contact.
We offer a Learn to Lead Climbing Class every Thursday, 6:00 - 9:00pm taught by expert lead climbers! You should be a competent Top-Rope climber/belayer before attempting the lead class.
