How It Works

Welcome to the Junction!

Never climbed before?

You can simply come down to try climbing for the first time. No pre-booking is necessary. With your purchase of a day pass our friendly staff will show you our auto belays and bouldering and get you climbing in minutes. All of our climbs are graded and colour coded so that you can identify which climbs are right for your abilities. Please note that all climber’s will need a signed waiver, and for participants under 18 that waiver must be completed by a parent.Please bring clean, dry, indoor running shoes or climbing shoe rental will be required. Shoes must have covered toes and closed backs. With your day pass you can leave and come back later that day. If you’d like a bit more direction your first time check out our Guided Climb package below.

Climbed before?

Our 50 boulder problems and 50 routes provide plenty of climbing for climber’s of all abilities and backgrounds. We used colour coded holds to simplify finding your climb (no tape!) and our air-conditioned modern building means you climb in comfort. If you’ve climbed before and feel confident in your belay skills check out belay test policy. Every climber to our facility received an orientation to our facilities on their arrival.

Belay Test

New and recently certified belayers at the Junction must demonstrate to our staff their ability and knowledge of proper harnessing, correct knots, and appropriate belay methods prior to belaying at our facility.

• Belayers must be at least 13 years of age
• Applicants under 18 must have a waiver signed by a legal guardian

 

Bouldering

Bouldering is one of the fastest growing sports in North America. Come and experience the intense, elegant, full body activity. Bouldering is climbing on walls not higher than 16 ft. and requires no ropes or special equipment. The low height means fast turnaround time and enhances the social experience and team atmosphere. Although no belay certification is required, first-time boulderers at the Junction receive a safety orientation.

 

Lead Certification Test

Lead Certification Tests must be booked in advance. Lead test candidates are required to provide their own rope, Grigri, and climbing partner. Only Grigri’s and figure 8 knots are permitted for lead belaying at the Junction. Contact us by email to book your test.


Auto Belays

What is an Auto Belay?
Autobelays are mechanical safety systems that protect a climber from falling. They are ideal for climbing on those days when your partner can’t be there or for trying climbing before taking the full belay lesson.
