What are your age requirements? The Gravity Vault is a great place for adults, kids, climbing novices and professional climbers. You only need to be five years old to climb in our facility and there is no maximum age! We welcome and accommodate beginners to professionals to climb with us.

Persons under 14 years of age do, however, need to work with either a parent/guardian who is certified to manage the ropes (i.e. Belay Certified) or work with one of our instructors. Parent(s)/guardian(s) may take our 2-hour Belay Certification Class offered three times a week and then come in on a day pass or membership where you work the ropes for the kids or you may opt for a program where our staff will run the ropes for you; like our Walk-In Climbing or a Staff Belayed Climbing Session. These programs are good for kids and adults if you would like our staff to run the ropes for you.
