Welcome to the Island of Hawaii's first dedicated rock climbing gym, where we offer an exciting bouldering experience for individuals of all ages and skill levels. Located in Hilo, on the east side of the island, we're passionate about providing an accessible bouldering experience for everyone.
About Us: We take pride in being the first gym on the Island of Hawaii dedicated exclusively to bouldering. Our mission is to share the thrill of unroped climbing with our community, fostering a sense of adventure, strength, and camaraderie.
Bouldering Only, No Ropes: Step into our gym, and you'll discover approximately 800 sq. ft. of bouldering space, featuring 14-foot high walls with a variety of routes and problems designed to cater to all ability levels. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced climber, you'll find challenges that suit your skills.
Liquid Chalk Only: Please note that loose chalk is not allowed within our facility to maintain a cleaner and safer climbing environment.
Climbing Shoe Rentals: If you don't have your own climbing shoes, don't worry! We offer climbing shoe rentals ($3), allowing you to experience bouldering comfortably and safely.
Observation Area for Friends and Family: While you're busy conquering our bouldering routes, we offer a comfortable observation area where friends and family can relax and watch our members and guests climb. It's a great place to cheer on your loved ones and share in their excitement.
Our Mission: We're committed to promoting bouldering as an exhilarating and fulfilling activity for everyone in the community. By providing a safe and supportive environment, we aim to inspire climbers of all ages to embrace the joys of unroped climbing and all the physical and mental benefits it brings.
