High Point Climbing And Fitness: Birmingham is located in the completely renovated Next Fitness facility on Highway 280. High Point Birmingham brings world class climbing to Alabama with 25,000 square feet of indoor climbing surface featuring walls up to 52+ feet tall. We also offer a Kid Zone, Bouldering Room, Weight and Aerobic Rooms, and yoga classes! Climbing Clubs and Team can be joined at anytime.  Yoga is now offered six times a week and is included with any Membership or Day Pass.

What do I need to know before I come?

Rock climbing is a sport that can be experienced and enjoyed by all ages and ability levels. At High Point, we try to foster that experience by offering classes and access options for everyone. One thing all first time visitors must do is complete a waiver before they can use the facility. You can fill a waiver out using the links below.

If you’re an experienced climber, and know the ropes, this link will take you to our rates page.  If you’re new to climbing or don’t know where to start, read on.  There are two basic options for those who have never climbed before or have no formal training. The first, is to use a device called an auto belay. An auto belay is a device that takes slack out the system as the climber moves up the wall and when the climber lets go or falls, the auto belay lowers them back to the ground. This option requires a short orientation and upon completion, allows you to use the 22 auto belays in the gym. The second, and most advantageous option, is to take a class to learn to belay. This two hour Basic Belay Class teaches climbers to use the 50+ rope stations in the gym in addition to the auto belays, which means you have access to nearly everything in the facility. Even if you don’t plan to climb yourself, you can still take the class and belay for others. The class also includes some great perks. You can read more about the class and its benefits with this link to our classes page.
