Outdoor Ice Wall

Ice Tower Open!!

The ice tower will be open for the season starting Wednesday December 7th!
 

Our Hours will be:

Wednesday-Friday 4pm-8pm

Saturday Noon-4pm 

Beginners & experts are ALL welcome! We love teaching people and look forward to introducing you to the sport!

**We reccommend children be at least 10 years of age or older to ice climb due to the weight and nature of the equipment. 

Equipment

All necessary equipment is included in the climbing fees and available for your use!  We have a full run of double plastic mountaineering boots, crampons, ice tools, harnesses, and helmets.

 

*If you have a group of more than 5 people we ask that you set up a rental time outside of our public hours. Find rental information here.
