Awesome facility. Big lead walls with 4 (5?) autobelays. Shorter lead walls and bouldering area for kids. Dedicated training room on floor 4. Dedicated bouldering room on floor 5. Entry methods and pricing feel really convoluted at times and definitely needs a wider range of shoes in the shop. Overall love climbing here.
