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.
Before you arrive
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 7 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!
After your tour
Our 7 auto-belays and 100+ bouldering routes will give you plenty to keep you busy on your first visit. For those who have passed the belay test, climb the 100+ top rope routes you have access to. We also have our training area upstairs with a full rack of free weights, kettle bells, squat rack, treadmill, rowing machine, and stationary bike. There's also a yoga class every weeknight. Check the calendar for class times as they do vary. And if you are just hanging out, that's cool too. We have comfy seating scattered throughout the facility, free wifi, and a cafe filled with snacks and beverages.
If you have any questions, our staff is always walking around and at the front desk. Just ask!
As you leave
Make sure to return your rental gear at the front desk. Your day pass is good for all day! So, if you want to grab a bite and come back, feel free. If you're interested in learning how to use our top-rope stations, consider taking our Intro to Climbing class!

"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."
