Kids Climb at the BLOC (Every Weekend!)

the bloc tucson

Introduce your kids to rock climbing in Tucson!

The BLOC, located at 8975 E. Tanque Verde in East Tucson, is offering a Kids Climb every Saturday & Sunday from 9:00am to 11:00am.

Designed for kids 12 and under, the climb gives children a chance to learn about and experience rock climbing in a 20,000 square-foot air-conditioned, indoor environment.

At first, kids will climb in a special Autobelay area where mechanisms lower the climbers gently back to the ground. As they grow more confident, they can try bouldering - where they climb without ropes over a large pad. Kids are given safety instructions about how to fall properly.

There is no minimum age, but a representative from the BLOC told us that "most kids under two don't climb much." The Kids Climb is probably best suited for ages 3-12.

The cost is $15 per child, which includes the climbing and all rental gear.

Notes + Instructions

  • Kids of any age and adults are always welcome during regular climbing hours though the price will not be the special $15 "Kids Climb" price.
  • Climbers under 18 years of age need to have a waiver signed by a parent/guardian prior to participating.
  • Children under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • Wear comfortable athletic clothing that does not constrict movement.
  • The BLOC is a sister company to Rocks & Ropes, a 15,000 square foot facility in downtown Tucson that offers indoor rock climbing for inexperienced to skilled climbers.
  • Rocks and Ropes also has a Kids Climb, but R&R uses volunteers to belay the kids so the number of kids they can host is limited by the number of volunteers (usually 2-3 per volunteer). The Bloc uses Autobelays and bouldering so they do not have the same limits.
  • If your child loves the experience, he/she may want to consider joining the youth rock climbing team next year. The season runs September to May. For more information, contact Jon@rocksandropes.com.
