What is Bouldering?
Bouldering is rock climbing that does not require a harness or a rope on climbs that don’t go that high. Our walls are typically 13-14 ft. tall. Our flooring is a giant squishy pad to soften the impact from falls while bouldering. With bouldering, it’s fun to fall!
Bouldering provides a challenging and exciting workout: not only physically, but also mentally. It is an activity that teaches problem solving skills and how to overcome an obstacle. To complete the route, climbers must figure out how to move their body and use various shaped holds in order to reach the top. Once a route is completed, climbers experience a sense of success and accomplishment simply because they completed a route they were unable to complete before.
Do you allow groups?
Thank you for considering Blocworks for your group!
We do not do birthday parties at Blocworks. Feel free to reach out and we would love to provide you with some other local alternatives.
ALL GROUPS MUST EMAIL INFO@CLIMBBLOCWORKS.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO RESERVE TIME. A GROUP AT BLOCWORKS IS SEEN AS 10 OR MORE CLIMBERS.
Can I host a Birthday Party at Blocworks?
As much as we love a good time, we don’t offer birthday party packages at Blocworks. Feel free to bring a group in for some climbing, though.
What age do you recommend kids to start climbing? Do you have a kids climbing program?
We believe climbing is for EVERYONE! Not only do we have kiddos as young as 4 years old having a blast on our walls, we also have dedicated Youth Programs for ages 5-16 years!!
PLEASE NOTE: As of January 2022 we are limiting the amount of kids under 13 years of age every hour. What does this mean for parents? We have specific times and capacities for kids 13 and under to drop in and climb or reserve in advance. What does this mean for our community and members? We’re relentless about fostering inclusivity while encouraging commitment to the community.
It is highly recommended for parents of kids under 13 to book ahead of time.
Where do I park?
Blocworks prides itself on the district it belongs to. With restaurants, breweries, shops and so much more, Downtown Edmond is such a great place to spend a day with friends and family! Parking spots are found on the street and in nearby lots. Please see this map.
What do I wear?
Like any physical activity, climbing requires flexibility and strength. We recommend athletic apparel that allows for full range of motion.
We require shirts to be worn at all times. A standard pair of shoes and socks will do fine, as we will fit you in climbing shoes that don’t require socks.
Do I need any special equipment?
Climbing shoes, chalk bags and chalk are the only equipment we recommend for Blocworks. Chalk is not required but helps maintain friction and grip, similar to gymnastics.
We currently offer ONLY rental climbing shoes at $5 a visit, or $10 per month. Rental chalk is not available due to inability to sanitize chalk bags between use.
Loose chalk and chalk balls are available to purchase at the gym!
Can I drop my child off?
No. All children must be supervised by an adult at all times while they are in the climbing space. If you are unable to supervise your child while they climb, consider enrolling your child in one of our youth programs .
We truly believe climbing is unique in that you don’t have to be bleacher parents for this sport. That means put some shoes on yourself, and climb with your family!
