There are lots of ways to enjoy High Steppe Climbing Center!
We offer 3 types of climbing: bouldering, auto-belay, and roped. When you first arrive, you will have access to the bouldering wall and the auto-belay stations. If you are interested in roped climbing, you will need to follow the steps outlined below. Questions? Just ask. We’re here to help!
Bouldering – climbing without a rope, staying near the ground and relaying on our foot-thick pads to cushion a fall. This kind of climbing requires only a quick orientation and climbing shoes.
Auto-Belay – allows participants to climb to the tip with the safety of a rope, but without the need for a partner. An orientation plus a harness and shoes are required.
Roped Climbing – requires training and/or certification, a partner as well as a harness, shoes, and a belay device. Interested in roped climbing? HSCC belay certification is a safety requirement.
- Yes! I’m ready to climb and I have experience. Climbers can take a quick test with HSCC staff upon arrival to assess their skills.
- I’ve never done it before. No problem, we’ve got you covered! Join us for a Top Rope Course to earn your belay certification. Courses are regularly scheduled throughout the week. Check the calendar for details. Sign up online or at the front desk. Members received a discount, $18. Non-members, $24.
