First Time Climbers

Climbing is for all ages and athletic abilities

One of the common misconceptions is that climbing is a dangerous sport. Bouldering is a specific discipline of climbing where climbers usually climb no higher than 4.5m. There is no need for ropes since the falling area is a large foam mat that catches the climbers when they land.

Unlike most sports, climbing is an individual sport. There is no requirement for teams, or even a playing partner. The challenge is you against the wall. This allows you to climb with others in a very fun, cooperative environment. You can boulder alone or with friends. The experience is fun either way!

We see people form new friendships daily in the gym as they work on the climbs throughout the gym. The sport is truly a unique experience and it is no wonder why it is so rapidly growing in popularity.  


Climbing is dangerous. Climbing presents a significant inherent risk of serious physical injury, including paralysis or death. When you or the children for whom you are responsible climb at Beefy Boulders, you voluntarily assume all risks associated with climbing. The flooring will not prevent injury or death. 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.).
Keep climbing area clear of hazards – personal items (water bottles, clothes, etc.) should be placed in cubbies and lockers. No food or drink on padding.

Everyone must wear shoes and shirt while climbing

No climbing while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Everyone must have a signed, completed waiver on file. Those younger than 18 years old must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.

Everyone at the Beefy Boulders must check in at the front desk at the beginning of every visit. If you have not checked in, you do not have permission to climb or use BB facilities.
