We had a great time bouldering and hanging out with the locals, who shared beta and joined us in working some interesting problems. The food was delicious and the general vibe was very nice due to the friendly staff!

People of different ages, nationalities and background come here to chill out and work out. There are difficulty levels for everyone from starters to experts. People tend to meet up here and make friends very easily. *Also a great place for kids' birthday parties.
