Here are some Frequently Asked Questions people ask before visiting Hub Climbing:

What should I wear?

Wear something comfortable that is loose and/or can stretch, such as yoga or running attire. Jeans, for example, are not recommended as they are made of a stiffer material and may restrict your movements on the climbing wall. All climbers are required to wear rock climbing shoes. If you don’t own a pair or simply forgot yours at home, we do provide rentals for the day (socks are recommended). Climbing shoes are great for climbing but can be uncomfortable when worn for long periods. We recommend you bring flip flops, sandals or Crocs for your time between climbs. In case you don’t have a pair, ask our staff and we’ll lend you a free pair for the day.

And remember to avoid wearing anything that has attachments or parts that dangle off or can get stuck in the rocks or autobelays, etc. Eg hooped earrings are a big no-no!

How old does my child need to be to climb?

The minimum age is 4 years as long as children weigh over 35 lbs and can fit in our harness. If you are unsure, our staff will check prior to climbing.

Our recommended minimum age to boulder is 6 as some younger children may struggle to reach the climbing holds.

Other notes:

-Climbers within a “birthday party” must be 17 and under
-Adults climbing in a birthday party must purchase entry pass and rental gear

Am I too old to climb?

Short answer, nope! We have members and guests of all ages.

Please note that our birthday parties are set up for children! Anyone over 18 who wishes to climb must purchase an entry pass and rental gear.
