Welcome to Aiguille! Before your first visit, learn about the basics of rock climbing and what to expect. Our knowledgeable staff is ready to answer any questions and help you get the most out of your experience. We offer a range of climbing class levels, from beginner to advanced, and provide all the necessary equipment. During your visit, you can explore the different climbing walls and learn proper techniques. We look forward to your first visit.
An Introduction: Learn to Climb
Here at Aiguille, we offer two types of climbing: bouldering and rope.
Bouldering is climbing lower to the ground without a rope and does not require extensive instruction. Top-roping requires at least two people, the climber and the belayer, and requires instruction. Want to rope without a partner? Our auto-belays allow someone to climb without the requirement of a belayer. All participants must be at least five years old AND 25 lbs to participate.
What to Expect at Aiguille
Filling Out the Waiver
All participants are required to read and sign our Climbing Waiver, however, participants under the age of 18 will need to have it completed by their natural guardian. You may fill out the waiver in advance on our Waiver page.
Participants 18 years or older may complete their own Climbing Waiver and must provide a driver's license or other government issued identification for verification of identity and age. Participants under the age of 18 will need to have the Climbing Waiver completed by their Natural Guardian [?] whose ID will also be required for verification. Natural guardians that are not present at the time of arrival, a copy of this identification will be required. We provide a number of convenient ways to complete this documentation found on the Climbing Waiver page.
Purchasing Day Pass + Rental Equipment
Our day pass allows you access to all of our bouldering, top-rope & auto-belay climbing, as well as our cardio/weight equipment. Other than our normal hours of operation, there is no time limit for the length of your climbing experience.
Top-roping requires one rental harness per person and a belay device for every two people. Rental shoes are optional for top-roping and bouldering (as long as you are wearing closed toed shoes), but they are designed to be more effective on smaller foot holds.
Facility Tour and Rules
All first time guests will go on a quick 10 minute tour of our facility. You will learn about the different types of climbing we offer as well as how to use and enjoy our walls while following the necessary rules.
Once you have completed the tour, you will be able to access all of the different climbing walls at Aiguille!
If any of the climbers are under the age of 14 they will need someone 16 or older to help assist and monitor them in the facility.
