Q: What is bouldering? A: Bouldering is climbing in its purest form. With walls topping out at a height of 15ft the climber lands on soft padded flooring in the event of a fall making the use of a harness and rope unnecessary. The elimination of gear allows the climber to focus solely on the puzzle solving aspect of climbing; hence routes are called “problems”. Q: Do I need a reservation? A: No reservations necessary. Anybody can climb at any time. Elevation is open 9 am – 11 pm seven days a week. If you are in a group of 8 or more, you’ll qualify for a group discount. Please call the gym and let us know when you are coming, so that we can best accommodate you. Q: Do I need a partner and a harness? A: Neither are necessary. One of the great things about bouldering is that you can come by yourself.
