WHY BOULDERING?

We love all forms of climbing, but bouldering holds a special place in our hearts. The community that forms around a shared climb is like no other, and community is at the heart of what we do. Whether you’re reaching the top of your 1st or 100th climb, you’ll find Rock Mill to be a supportive and encouraging environment to push your limits and make new friends.

Our pro-shop is stocked with a variety of climbing shoes, chalk, chalk bags, harnesses, carabiners and quickdraws. We also sell home training equipment, guidebooks, and some great Rock Mill swag. 

What should I wear to climb?

What should I wear to climb?

Comfortable athletic clothes with easy range of motion is best. Leave rings/watches/bracelets at home as they can get in the way of climbing and even be a hazard.
