First time visiting Salt Pump?

Climbing is an activity that comes naturally to kids; the challenge for many adults is to rediscover their inner child. 

How It Works


Fill out a waiver before you arrive at Salt Pump. EVERYONE who wants to come into the facility needs to have a completed waiver, even if only spectating. 

When you get here

Most first-timers will choose the day-pass option. We have all the necessary gear available to rent. Our professional staff show you how to put the gear on properly, give you a tour of the facility, and an orientation to our 9 auto-belays: devices that allow you to access our top-rope terrain. We'll also walk you through the bouldering area, a zone of ropeless climbing. 

If you know how to belay, we'll give you a short test to demonstrate your competency. Then, feel free to climb any of our 40+ top-rope stations! 

Fine Print

  • If it is busy at the gym, you may need to wait a little while for a belay test if you need one
  • Please respect physical distancing of at least six feet and try to sanitize many times throughout your time in Salt Pump.
  • Before entering the facility, please answer the below screening questions honestly.
  • Thank you for your understanding!

"Friendly staff, amazing intro class! I walked away from my class feeling not only confident in my own safety while climbing but comfortable and confident about ensuring others are safe as well. Highly recommend it to anyone, and this is coming from a guy with a nasty fear of heights!belaying. This camp is packed full of fun, learning and adventure! A definite must on the camp list."
