New Climbers

Joe Rockhead’s has introduced more people to the exciting sport of climbing than any other organization in the country. We pride ourselves on our impeccable safety record and our ability to bring it all to you in a fun, low-pressure atmosphere. 

New climbers can safely explore un-roped climbing on our bouldering walls without formal instruction, at their own pace. However, we recommend first-timers reserve a place in a Basic Beginner Lesson to gain roped belay skills and confidence in your technique.

Our beginner lessons are not the quickie 15 minute specials you may find at other gyms for the same price. Rockhead’s comprehensive 3-hour lessons introduce all the safety and technical aspects of indoor rock climbing including top roping and bouldering. With interactive instruction we both show you the skills you need, and explain why it’s done the way it is.

If you’re 13 years old or younger, we recommend organizing a Kids Climb.
