I HAVE NEVER CLIMBED BEFORE -- HOW DO I START?
Great! High Altitude welcomes beginners and pros alike. First thing's first -- safety. You will want to fill out our online waiver and set up your profile, here.
If you are already a member, we offer a FREE belay course. This is where you can learn the ropes, literally! Members are free. There is a fee for non-members of $25. View the schedule and reserve your spot today! Or give us a call: (775) 831-4212.
You DO NOT need to know how to belay to climb at our facility. However, if you intend to climb with a partner, using the ropes, you will need to be belay certified. View the requirements here to prepare.
We offer four TRU BLU auto belay systems! See how they work, here!
DO I NEED TO HAVE MY OWN GEAR?
We offer rental gear at the front desk! Shoe sizes range from children's size 3/4 to Adult size 15. (Adult sizes are unisex).
CAN I BORROW MY FRIEND’S OLD GEAR?
Old shoes are fine to borrow; however, borrowing old safety gear including harnesses, ropes and carabiners or belay devices are not recommended.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Wear clothes that are comfortable and allow movement. Bulky items and sweatshirts should be removed while you fit your harness.
DO YOU HAVE SHOWERS?
Yes, we have 3 showers in both the men's and women's locker rooms.
DO YOU HAVE LOCKERS?
Yes, we offer day use lockers--no need to bring your own lock! All contents must be taken home with you at the end of the day as our staff empties the lockers each night.
