Q: DO I NEED A MEMBERSHIP TO COME CLIMB AT ZENITH?

Answer: No, memberships are not required to climb at our facility. We offer Day-Pass pricing options along with gear rentals. All we need from you is a signed liability WAIVER.

NOTE: Participants under the age of 18 require a signature from a parent or legal guardian.

Q: IT’S MY FIRST TIME CLIMBING, DO I NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

Answer: Nope, every day is Open-Climb! If there is one thing we love more than climbing itself, it’s meeting first-time climbers and introducing them to the sport. Rest assured you will feel right at home no matter your skill level!

Q: DO I NEED TO BE BELAY CERTIFIED?

Answer: If you already know how to belay then all we ask is that you demonstrate your knowledge to one of our staff members. If you would like to learn, we offer lessons from a certified instructor in our Belay Class or more in-depth Climbing 101 Class.

Q: WHAT GEAR DO I NEED?

Answer: All you need is athletic clothing. We have all the gear you need! Basic gear includes climbing shoes, harness, chalk bags, ropes, belay devices, etc. If you have your own climbing gear, bring it with you and use it instead of renting. If you are concerned about any older personal gear ask a staff member to inspect it for you to ensure it is safe to use.

Q: IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT TO CLIMB?

Answer: We like to say 3 years old is the youngest that can climb and it usually works out. We have a kids area where they can play and go down a slide. They must be able to securely fit in a children’s harness to climb any roped walls. If you have younger kids you can still bring them and let them play on the pads in the back and take them down the slide if you want! 🙂
NOTE: Children 3 and under are FREE!!

Q: WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW BEFORE COMING TO CLIMB MY FIRST TIME?

Answer: If it’s your first time, you should know that being nervous is OKAY and natural. At Zenith you will find that our staff are eager to give you pointers and help you progress. This attitude transfers throughout the Zenith community. Everyone is here to have fun and learn to be a better version of themselves! It’s fascinating how the climbing community naturally wants to help each other improve. We’re just glad we get to be a part of your journey!
