Which Location is Right for Me?
Climb Iowa has two gyms, each equipped with their own unique ways to stay active and have fun. Find the gym that's right for you!
Introductory Membership
Discover the perfect membership for aspiring climbers! Enjoy 8-weeks of climbing, with all of your rental gear included. Take free intro classes like our Belay Class, Bouldering 101, and our line of Movement Classes.
Belay Classes
The skills learned in this class are essential to opening the door to all we have to offer at the Grimes location. During this 90-minute class, participants learn how to put on a climbing harness, tie the proper knot and belay for another climber. The belayer manages the rope for the climber, serving as their protection while ascending.
Bouldering 101 Classes
This class covers a variety of topics for the beginning boulderer, including sending rules and grading, ways to utilize our bouldering circuits, route reading, and a few exercises on technique. Most importantly, we spend the last portion of the class on falling.
Climb Iowa Birthday Parties
Climb Iowa’s unique birthday parties keep your child’s mind and body engaged while keeping them active and learning new skills. Enthusiastic staff members cheer young climbers on with words of encouragement as they reach heights of over 35′! Make sure to bring cameras to capture the thrill of reaching the top.⁠

Climb Iowa is a wonderful place to host a birthday party for kids of all ages! They hosted my 8 year old son's party and we had a group that varied in age from 7 to 39 and everyone had an amazing adventure.
