Welcome to Stone Age, the gathering place for Albuquerque’s climbing community. We have tons to offer and are super stoked to see you here!
All visitors, whether climbing or spectating, must complete our waiver form. You can fill out a waiver in our lobby or save time and fill out a digital waiver before your visit at the link below.
FIRST VISIT & WHAT TO EXPECT
We know it can be intimidating to walk into a climbing gym for the first time. But at Stone Age, we create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere for every level of climber to enjoy themselves and have fun. We expect all visitors to follow our gym rules which include (but are not limited to) no running and no standing under climbers or loitering on climbing pads. Please be respectful of other climbers, take turns and let others give your climb a try after every attempt.
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. Here 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. Anyone is welcome to rock climb! No previous climbing experience is necessary. All ages are welcome, kids as young as 6 come in with wide eyes and smiles.
If you are interested in taking a class to become a more proficient climber or to accelerate your experience, please reference our Climbing Classes page for information. Or if you already have experience and would like to take a belay test, please see our front desk and ask for availability. Belay tests can be done at any time at no cost.
PRICES: Please reference our Day Rates page for price information.
All ages are welcome to climb at Stone Age. Heck, we have 70-year-olds climb to the top every day. If you’re coming in with children, we expect active adult supervision of any child under the age of 14 at all times. We expect everyone to understand their limitations and to climb at their own risk. Kids around the age of 6 and older tend to have a better time than younger children due to their maturity and size.
WHAT TO WEAR
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’s 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 out climbing shoes for a better experience.
