TRY CLIMBING: KIDS

 

Your child loves to climb up anything they can? You want them to try out rock climbing? You've come to the right place. Read through our options below and find out how you can get them started. 

TRY IT

Your child can try climbing by trying the auto-belays or bouldering.

AUTO-BELAYS


The Trublue initiation will allow you to use our auto-belays.

What is an auto-belay? It is a system that allows you to climb safely at heights without having to take the Climbing 101 course. You will then be able to supervise your children while they climb the autobelays.

Please note that anyone under the age of 16 must be accompagnied by an adult while using the auto-belays. Minors 16 and over may use the auto-belays without supervision only if they have a top rope accreditation at Allez Up.

BOULDERING


Bouldering is a discipline of rock climbing that does not involve ropes. The walls are much smaller and climbers fall on mats instead of being attached to ropes.

A course is not required to boulder at Allez Up, so it's a great way to try climbing for the first time. 

Please note that children 14 and under must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.

QUESTIONS

While there is no minimum age to climb, the minimum age to participate in all our kids activities is 6 years old.

Comfortable loose or flexible clothing is most recommended. You can wear a closed, clean and dry shoe instead of the climbing shoes. Long hair must be tied back.

A waiver must be signed for each climber. For climbers under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must sign. All waivers will need to be renewed every 3 years. You can fill out your waiver online or at the gym.

ONLINE WAIVER

Unfortunately we are no longer able to provide an eating area for birthday parties. You are welcome to bring small groups to climb during our walk-in sessions!

On-street parking is available around the gym. We also have 6 parking spots by the back entrance to the gym.
