Kids climbing the walls? 

Sign them up for Kids Rock Block and get the climbing our walls instead!


Does your child want to try rock climbing?  Kids Rock Block is the absolute easiest way to do it! 

Sign your child up for an hour block (or more) of Kids Rock Block, then drop them off and let one of our expert youth instructors guide them to new heights. You can stick around and cheer them on, or go run errands then come back and hear your child’s exciting stories of adventure and accomplishment!


$30 per class

$100 for a 4 pack of classes

Rental harness and shoes included


Location: Kids Rock Block is currently offered at our Avondale, Humboldt Park and Uptown locations.

Ages Requirements. Our Rock Block sessions are only available to children ages 7-13 years old.  

Refunds: Due to space and scheduling limitations, there are no refunds for Rock Block Drop-In classes.

Pre-booking: All pre-booked Rock Block sessions must be paid in full to reserve your spot. Walk ins are welcome, but kids are taken on a first come, first served basis and space is not guaranteed unless you sign up in advance.
