What should I expect on the first visit at Stone Age?

On your first visit to Stone Age, our professional instructors will guide you through the basics of the autobelay systems and bouldering terrain during your complimentary gym orientation. You will receive a tour of our facilities, learn our gym rules, and how to use the autobelay equipment properly. We have locker rooms and cubbies throughout the facility for you to place your belongings. You’re welcome to ask your guide questions to get a better understanding about rock climbing and how it can transform your new alternative fitness lifestyle.

What should I wear for climbing?

We get this question a lot and recommend you climb in comfortable athletic clothing. Yoga pants or gym shorts are great to wear under a harness. A long t-shirt or tank top is recommended to be able to tuck under the harness’ waist strap. Closed toed shoes are required if you don’t want to rent our climbing shoes. Always come with socks, in case you want to try our climbing shoes for a better experience.

I already have experience. What can I do to learn more?

If you already have experience and would like to take a belay test, please see our front desk crew. Belay tests can be done at any time at no cost. Are you interested in taking a class to become a more proficient climber or to accelerate your experience? Please reference our Climbing classes page or Personal Training page for information.

How old can a child be to start climbing in the gym? Can anybody climb?

We expect active adult supervision of any child under the age of 14 at all times. Kids around the age of 6 and older tend to have a better time than younger children due to their maturity and size. But kids of all ages are welcome to climb at Stone Age. However, we have 70-year-olds climbing every day. Again, we expect everyone to understand their limitations and to climb at their own risk.

How much does to cost to climb?

We have a variety of prices to meet your needs. If you’re looking for a casual, walk-in experience, you’re welcome to utilize our day pass rates. Non-members are allowed to come in during the work week from noon to closing and Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to closing. Please note that closing hours may change so please check our website for hours at the time of your visit.  However, we’re pretty sure you will love it here so if you’re curious how you can utilize the facilities more, check out our Memberships page for information. If you’re interested in bringing in a group of 8 or more, check out our Groups page for information.
