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 of the system as the climber moves up the wall. 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 all of our auto belays in the gym.
The second, and most advantageous option, is to take a class and 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.
* Notice – The auto belays in our Rope Room are back! However, due to required maintenance, the auto belays on our outdoor climbing wall have been removed and are currently being serviced. We apologize for this inconvenience. We would also like to remind everyone that the auto belays in our kid zone are are still fully operational. *
