Looking for a real rush? The Orange County Rock City Climbing Gym offers short-term and day passes to visitors looking to get in a workout—that doesn’t feel like one! Choose from a variety of pricing options, including the full-day bouldering pass with shoe rentals for just $15. Climbing and bouldering courses/routes are available for all levels from beginners to pros.
Enjoy great flow and learn new techniques from one of the many instructors on hand. Resilience and determination is needed, but the goal of Rock City Climbing is to help everyone become stronger and more assured climbers. Bouldering, or climbing without ropes, means steep overhangs and sometimes vertical climbs. The top-out bouldering space has room for all, although it’s recommended to have a buddy for bouldering.
Try out top roping, where you can summit walls with a harness attached to a “belayer” (partner on the ground). You can sign up for belaying classes, or get a quickie lesson for under ten minutes. Climbing shoes are highly recommended, though not required. You can get a day pass with harness and shoe rentals for just $20.
For those ready for the next level, check out lead climbing. A special lead wall gives you the biggest challenges, and you’re required to have a skilled belayer with you (instructors are available!). Belayers will need to pass a fast skills test before being allowed to partner with you. Lead climbing classes are available throughout the week.
