Where are we going today?

AZ on the Rocks offers a modern indoor climbing experience with extensive range of routes and hangs, bouldering and a great attitude toward kids.

Parents can attend a short friendly tuition session to learn to belay the ropes, they can then suprvise and support their own child as they explore vertically, up to some 30ft! First time climbers need to go through a Required Orientation before beginning their session.

Also on offer here are kids' camps, after school specials, birthday parties and they support scouting badge programs.

    The video thing when you first go here is a bit annoying, but other than that this is a nice place to come and have a climb. Not too packed and everything is labeled appropriately. The bouldering area is really cool!

    This is a great place to climb. Weather you are a beginner or advanced, you will find a wall that is sure to challenge you. Paths are labeled well and it's not usually packed with people to cause a significant wait. The walls are nice and tall and they offer a few single lines throughout the space so you don't have to have a buddy.

    They also have a bouldering area. I've heard they do yoga and other classes but have not participated in them.

    Pricing is reasonable and worth it if you stay more than a couple hours.

    The whole process with the video orientation is a real pain. I understand its usefulness for kid groups (and their parents), but for adults who have climbed before, the waiver and skills check by a staff member should suffice. Other gyms I have gone to ask to see you tie in, commands, belay technique, spotting, and you are good to go. The staff (who were very polite) told me to wait for the next video time and they would let me know when to view it, then they forgot to tell me when it started, so I wound up missing the next video showing, and was...Read More

If you are a beginner be prepared to watch a short video, the process is for orienting and safety.

The staff (who were very polite) told me to wait for the next video time and they would let me know when to view it, then they forgot to tell me when it started, so I wound up missing the next video showing, and was waiting for 40 minutes from the time I arrived, until I actually got to climb. A simple shout out to the reception area letting people know the next orientation video was starting would have been appreciated.

The bouldering routes were enjoyable, however there seemed to be a lack of consistency with the taping. You had V0 and V7 with the same color tape, which would not normally be a problem however some routes were missing ratings to begin with, or were missing tape by the start so it made it frustrating to not know how the problem went. I understand that I may be totally spoiled by other gyms I have climbed at, but maybe this can be helpful criticism.

I did appreciate the staff roaming the floor. During the day I went there many, many kids there and staff were quick to keep them from running under you or grabbing a pad while I was using it, and were overall very friendly. The auto-belays are a very nice feature as well, and the cracks are a great feature on the walls.
