Day Pass

Non-members are allowed to climb the wall and pay per visit.  Again, no experience is necessary! 

Day Pass (No Equipment Provided)

This day pass rate is for climbers who use their own climbing equipment (harness, shoes, etc.).  Non-members are not allowed to belay unless they can pass the Guest Belay Test without prior instruction by the Stout Adventures Staff.

Day Pass (Includes Equipment) 

This day pass rate provides an introduction to rock climbing before making a commitment of a membership. Our climbing wall staff will give an overview of the sport, a walk through of the equipment and will provide a belay for the climber. This is not an instructional class. Includes climbing equipment (harness, shoes, etc.).
