What is bouldering?
Bouldering is rock climbing, without using ropes or harnesses, on climbs that don’t go too high off the ground. Our boulders are usually thirteen to fifteen feet tall, and the tallest ones are sixteen to seventeen feet. Outside, boulderers move small mats and pads under the climbs. In our gym, the entire floor is a giant, squishy pad.
Our boulders have problems. Problems are climbing routes on the boulders. They consist of a series of carefully-placed holds which you climb from start to finish.
Problems can be easy or really really hard. That’s what makes it fun.
My grandma, baby, spouse, isn't climbing...do they need a waiver?
Yes! Everyone going past the front desk will need a waiver on file, even if they are not climbing.
What should we bring?
We recommend wearing comfy clothes you can move in and bringing a water bottle. Climbing shoes provided with group rate.
How long can we stay?
You are welcome to stay as long as you'd like! Most groups stay around 2 hours. Depending on what the Mappy Hour group is comfortable with, we may check out Fremont Brewery or another nearby bar afterwards!
What happens day of?
Group participants should let the front desk know they are here with the Mappy Hour group. They will be checked in and fitted for climbing shoes. Once 80% of your group has arrived, staff will provide an orientation to the space and you'll be free to climb.
