Kids & Families

Bouldering is a super fun family activity. We look forward to hosting your family at First Ascent!

Getting Started

All children under the age of 14 must be supervised by an adult at all times.

If you plan to climb with your kids, you may want to consider taking one of our intro classes with them. Visit the New Climbers Section for more information.

First Ascent also offers programs to introduce kids to the sport of climbing and encourage them to progress in their climbing movement and technique. For a full list of our offerings, check out our Youth Programs page.


All visitors are required to complete a waiver before climbing, spectating, or participating in other activities at First Ascent – no exceptions. Children under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian complete the waiver. Save time checking in! Fill out your waiver online here.

Don’t have your own gear? We’ve got you covered. You can rent climbing shoes and a chalk bag at the front desk. Climbing shoes are recommended but not required.
