Rock Climbing

Our TENNOVA FAMILY YMCA offers an indoor rock climbing wall with certified belayers.  Our climbing wall is perfect for recreational climbers who want to learn the basics of climbing in a low pressure, non-competitive environment.  Our staff are trained and certified to belay climbers and offer encouragement and instruction; climbing is only allowed with the supervision of a certified Y staff member.  Harnesses and climbing gear are provided.  Rock climbing is free for Y Members 4 and older during open climb hours.  Guests may participate with the purchase of a day guest pass.

Climbing Rules

Please observe all rules, including:

  1. Please listen to the climbing instructor at all times. Climbing instructors reserve the right to refuse service to anyone due to, but not limited to, behavioral or safety concerns.
  2. Children must be at least 4 years of age to climb.
  3. Children under 8 years of age must be supervised by a parent or guardian 18 years of age or older.
  4. Climbers are not permitted to climb in swimsuits or wet clothing.

Climbers and spectators are to remain in the carpeted area at all times until instructed otherwise by a climbing instructor.

Teen Rock Climbing

This is a scheduled, free class for teen Y Members ages 13-18 with no registration required.  Just come ready to climb!  Guests may participate with the purchase of a guest pass.  A certified Y staff member will encourage and challenge teens to improve their strength, agility, and endurance on the wall.
