How Can I Start Climbing?

Don’t worry it is as easy as 1… 2… 3…

First of all, set aside your worries and expectations. It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, big or small, scared of heights or haven’t had a chance to workout in awhile. We are here to tell you that ANYONE CAN CLIMB! Including you!!!

That being said, this is what you can expect on your first visit to Threshold.

1. Waiver

First things first! Climbing is a ton of fun and can be a healthy and rewarding sport! However, with anything this fun it is important to recognize that climbing is dangerous and your safety and the safety of others depends entirely on your ability to follow the rules.

It is required that anyone 18 years or older must sign their own waiver. If you are under the age of 18 years old then only a parent/legal guardian is allowed to sign your waiver.

Before entering the climbing area EVERYONE MUST HAVE A WAIVER SIGNED, NO EXCEPTIONS!

Day Passes & Rentals

Not sure what you want to do? Don’t worry! Most of our guests attend Orientation before deciding how they would like to access the gym.

3. Orientation

Get the grand tour of Threshold! One of our staff members will walk the facility with you and point out all our wonderful amenities. Orientation lasts about 10 minutes and explains the gym rules, teaches you how to take a fall while bouldering and explains our proficiency test requirements for accessing the tall climbing areas.

Take a Digital Tour

After Orientation you’re ready to go! You will have access to all bouldering areas, yoga room and fitness room. In order to access the tall walls you will first need to pass a proficiency test for Auto-Belays, Top Ropes and/or Lead Climbs.

Worried about taking Proficiency Tests?

Don’t worry! We have all the climbing classes that will allow you to succeed!
