    They have a great variety of climbing and bouldering walls with frequent route changes. However, there seems to be a lot of children’s activities where children run rampant and management doesn’t seem to care. I’ve had kids start climbing walls I was tying onto, had to stop climbing to help unsupervised children that climbed too high on a wall and couldn’t get down. Last time I went, there was a birthday party where the kids were running laps around the gym disrupting climbers. One even ran into me and nearly knocked me off the wall! If they just enforced their age and children supervisory policies, Petra would be great. But membership is too expensive to worry about if you’re going to have to babysit someone’s kid while climbing.

    Had my first experience at Petra Cliffs last week. I decided to jump in and get a beginner’s lesson to learn some basics and see if climbing is something I would take to. I loved it! Wish I started sooner. Lauren was a great instructor, and coached me through all of the routes. I even got to try bouldering. It was a blast and I will definitely be back.

    It’s been awhile, but I love my trips to Petra Cliffs. Andrea and her staff are great! It can be a little hard to find, so definitely GPS it. We’ve signed up the kids for Petra’s Cliffs Rock Climbing Camp this summer and I can’t wait to hear their stories.

    Petra Cliffs is kinda hidden in the area as many locals don’t know its there. It’s surprisingly busy though. The indoor climbing area seams small but has a good amount of climbing areas. The staff was friendly and helpful to new climbers. I did find that the actual climbing areas go from relatively easy to much more difficult rather quickly. After you’ve done the first 4-5 easy climbs, the next one is a big jump. 25$ for the initiation is ok but not cheap for a couple climbing for the first time.

    This is my first climbing gym (and I’m just learning to climb) so I don’t have much comparison, but I’ve been happy. There’s lots of routes of varying difficulty, lots of climbers of different skill levels, and the intro clinic I signed up for has gotten me on the ropes and up the walls–so overall I’m very happy.
