Small Groups / Birthday Parties (4-12 people during hours)

Clip & Climb - Clip & Climb parties offer kids access to any wall in the gym. Planet Rock belayers are provided to hold the ropes and supervise kids while parents take pictures and relax! One belayer will be provided for every four kids. All gear is provided. Clip & Climb parties are a perfect introduction to climbing. The cost is $25 per child for 3 hours of climbing! Maximum party size is 12 kids. A private party room with tables and chairs is available for most party times. For best availability party reservations must be made with our group coordinator at least 3 weeks in advance and held with a non-refundable $50 deposit.

Belay Lessons - Each participant 14 or older learns to belay (hold the ropes) for other climbers and all participants become Planet Rock members. This lesson takes about an hour. This program is best for groups with at least 1 person 14 or older per 4-5 kids under 14 or if participants intend to climb at the gym again in the future. Prices for small groups wishing to go through the lessons follow regular Planet Rock rates. Small groups arranged with our group coordinator will receive one free adult belay lesson per every four child or adult starter packages purchased. A private party room with tables and chairs is available for $15 per hour. For best availability party reservations should be made at least 3 weeks in advance.
