Climbing Options at EPIC
Rock climbing without the use of ropes or harnesses. Ample padding below the bouldering area helps to lessen the likelihood of injuries from falls. This type of climbing can be more physically intensive, but an excellent way to learn techniques and movements associated with all climbing.
Orientation Time: 5 minutes
A great option for climbers without a partner. Also a great option if you would like to climb up our higher walls, but do not know how to belay. An auto belay is an automatic belay device that eliminates the need for a human belayer. The device takes the slack out of the rope as a climber ascends and will control the descent when the climber reaches the top or falls.
Orientation Time: 5-10 minutes
Roped climbing with a partner. This type of climbing requires two people, a rope, harnesses and a belay device. At our facility, in order to top rope you must be able to tie a figure 8 retrace knot and belay using a tube style belay device (or your own personal belay device). If you are not familiar with these practices, our Intro to Climbing class covers all the information you will need to start top-roping at EPIC.
Orientation Time: Must pass a belay check (5 min) OR take our Intro to Climbing Class (apprx. 75 min)
An advanced level of roped climbing requiring instruction and experience. At our facility you may use a tube style belay device (ie ATC) or assisted locking device (ie, GriGri), but must show command of the device. If you are unable to pass the test or would like guided instruction, we offer a lead climbing course.
Orientation Time: Must pass a top rope and lead check (5-10 min)
what people say
I LOVED this gym! I'm visiting from Utah and am picky about my gyms. Scott was incredible. Very patient, easy to talk to, and just a cool guy. The routes were varied and challenging. Ratings matched more outside climbing. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be back...even though it's a 30 min drive away. Thanks Scott!
This is the cleanest and best staffed gym in the Indianapolis area. The routes here are clear and frequently maintained and updated so there's always something new to try. The staff is friendly, inclusive, and super involved with the community. They also offer yoga, dancing classes, and climbing groups for kids and for all women. I love this place; the vibe is positive and welcoming.
Manager was awesome! He kept the lead test process very calm and smooth. I've only been once, but it really seems like an all around quality gym.
