    Hey! I Just moved to the Baltimore area. Looking for a climbing partner on weekdays after work (5:30p/6pm), though I'm flexible on days. Big bonus if you know how to lead climb, or are to the point where you would like to learn to lead climb.

    I'm looking for a top rope and bouldering partner around noon during weekdays and 9am on weekends. I would like it to be a routine kinda thing.

    I'm a total newbie. I took the intro to climbing class at ET Columbia and haven't gotten any further, but I'd like to get more into it if I can find someone to climb with who doesn't mind my utter lack of experience :)

    Plenty of room, fantastic community, fantastic routesetting on a weekly basis. I keep coming back for more and feel spoiled every time I'm there. The staff is always extremely helpful and friendly.

    The staff is great; they are very friendly and welcoming. There are classes held there for members/anyone for an additional fee but they are very helpful. There is also a women’s climb class to help us achieve the goals. I know it’s helped me out a lot. The people who go there are also very supportive and friendly. They will cheer you on and point things out to help you finish the climb. The gym is clean and well kept. They also have snacks, power bars, and drinks if you get the munchies or feel a bit low on energy. They usually change the boulder area monthly to keep it new and wanting to come back for more. There are pads on the ground to make the falls cushy but also have about an 8” padded floor for extra padding for the jumps and falls from the walls. There is a gym where you can actually work out. Including weights tread mills, elliptical machines, and ect. Overall, this is a great climbing gym. I’ve been to all three and this has to be my favorite.

    I've been attending all three gyms for the past three years. I really love Columbia mainly for its staff and the community. Staff: Some of the kindest employees of any company I have ever dealt with. They are very nurturing both in and outside of classes. They also go out of their way to remember you! This is probably one of the best aspects of this location. Community: Everyone there is always cheering for you! Everyone is so very helpful to help you complete your climbs. Not only that but they are very patient and have fantastic etiquette. Bouldering: Routes are changed every 3 weeks and set by many of their best climbers. Top Roping: These change fairly often and offer many different types of experiences (corners, aretes, hanging). Only compliant is that they tend to stack them on top of each other too often. Lead: Few walls with a fair amount of work space. Rarely bumping into people besides when someone descends from the large pump wall. Workout Room: Contains weights, benches, roman chairs, Olympic rings. For what you would expect out of a rock gym. It certainly exceeds those expectations. Safety: they change the ropes quite frequently! Even more, they change the lead climbing ropes at least every 4 weeks! Everyone there has to go through a safety test to make sure they know how to tie-in/climb properly. Classes: though they offer a few classes that are a bit pricey they do teach you many skills for indoor and outdoor climbing. On the plus side, they do have free classes for members. These Member clinics are great but often need a bit more thought. If you don't know, its not a big deal you can still bolder or take the inexpensive package which includes 2 classes and 15 days for 2 people.
