How gym climbing works: There are two main types of gym climbing: bouldering and roped climbing.
Bouldering is climbing done on relatively low rocks, or “boulders.” Climbers who boulder don’t use ropes because the top of the bouldering routes are low enough for climbers to jump down. That said, remember that some of the boulders in our gyms are very tall (18 feet) so be careful about what you decide to climb. Only climb as high as you are comfortable.
Bouldering is a great way for climbers to hone their climbing skills and build strength. You do not need a climbing partner when you are bouldering but can always find a fun group of people and a great bouldering community.
The second type of climbing you will find in gyms is roped climbing like Planet Granite San Francisco, Sunnyvale, or Belmont. To climb the tall walls, climbers must tie into a climbing rope and have a climbing partner on the ground managing the rope. This rope management is called “belaying”.
Kids are natural-born climbers. At Planet Granite, we have developed a number of programs that allow kids to experience the benefits of climbing.
Our most popular kids’ event is birthday parties.
Other options to consider are our After School Programs, Winter, Spring and Summer Camps and Parents’ Night Off. Your child can climb during our drop-in climbing, where a staff member climbs with them and other children. Or if they’d like to climb non-stop with a staffer, we are always happy to provide a private instructor for your child, please contact us at (669) 342-6588 for more information.
For inquiries, email Sasha Schwartz.

All participants need to fill out a waiver and bring government-issued photo identification. The waiver is the most important piece of information. Minors must have a minor’s waiver filled out by a parent or legal guardian. If the parent or legal guardian is unable to accompany the child, we must receive a photocopy of the signing parent/legal guardian’s government-issued photo ID. Legal guardians must bring proof of their guardianship.
