Climbing shoes: $4 a day but free for first time guests
Adult Bouldering Classes
There’s a lot to learn in climbing. We have classes we’d recommend for this. Bouldering classes are lead by our staff— who are all obsessed with climbing. They’ll introduce you to bouldering and the facility and help you get better at climbing, faster.
These adult classes are intended for climbers over 14 years old. Climbing classes are a good mix of instruction, fun, failure, success, laughter, and maybe the occasional swear word.
If you’re new to bouldering, this class is 45 minutes of fun that gets you up to speed on our facility and the basics of the activities offered at ABP. At the end of class you should have all the tools to climb and use the gym on your own.
Topics covered include proper falling technique, ABP’s circuit system, starting and finishing climbs, and basic climbing gym etiquette.
Zero to sixty in 45 minutes. Pretty fast.
Classes are offered every Thursday at 6:30-7:15p, and Saturday at 3:30pm. Intro to ABP is free with your day pass, punch-card, or membership. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before class to allow time for waivers, check in, and shoe rental.
This 90 minute class is intended for those looking to improve their basic climbing technique, or those not yet comfortable climbing the purple circuit (V2-V4). Students should leave with the potential to practice new techniques on their own to improve their climbing abilities.
This classes’ goal is to give students an understanding of efficient footwork, climbing vocabulary, and route reading skills.
Classes are offered every Thursday at 7:30-9pm, and Saturday at 4:30pm. Bouldering I is free with your day pass, punch card, or membership. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to allow for check in, and be ready with climbing shoes by the start of class.
Online registration closes two hours prior to the start of each class. You can sign-up at the front desk within two hours of class, as long as there’s space available.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
Any youth (younger than 14) must be actively supervised by the adult who is responsible for them during their visit to the gym. Any parent, guardian or chaperone responsible for a youth must maintain direct supervision over the youth during the entirety of their visit. An adult cannot supervise more than 3 youth at a time.
Never climb above, below, or near another climber. Never stand, sit, or walk in an area where another climber could fall.
No running, yelling, rough housing, or acrobatics (flips, cartwheels, handstands, etc.).

We have limited table space for groups. Scheduled groups will always receive table space, however, unscheduled groups are first come, first served. Groups that use tables are expected clean up after themselves. Groups that do not cleanup will be charged a cleaning fee.
Supervision for youth under 14 years old is required at all times! 1 adult can supervise up to 3 youth at a time in the youth climbing areas. In the adult climbing area, 1 adult can supervise up to 2 youth.
To ensure the best check-in experience possible we require the names of everyone that will be climbing with your group at least 24 hours in advance. Discounted group rates will only be available for climbers that we have names of ahead of time. Any climbers that we do not have names for ahead of time may purchase regular priced day passes.
ABP reserves the right to turn away any unscheduled group.
