Soirée Kids: An Indoor Adventure Awaits at Little Rock Climbing Center

Little Rock Climbing Center (LRCC) features more than 5,000 square feet of 30-foot textured climbing walls with angles for all skill levels, including 20 dedicated rope belay stations and 10 auto-belay stations that do not require a partner or special training.

The indoor climbing facility offers a great opportunity for training or simply an afternoon of athletic enjoyment.

LRCC also has a large party room for birthday parties and other events, as well as a pro shop that offers climbing equipment and snacks for your next outdoor adventure.

I am a first time climber. How does it work?

The first time you come in, we will give you a gym orientation and safety training. We’ll show you how to put on a harness, use our auto-belays and get you started climbing. Anyone who is 13 or older can also learn to work the ropes (belay) and begin climbing on the top-rope stations. You don’t have to have a partner to climb on the auto-belay walls, but you do need a partner to belay for you on the top-ropes. LRCC does not provide people to belay for climbers.


What do I need to bring?

Comfortable clothes and a good attitude are the most important things! If anyone in your party is under 18 they will need to have their parents complete the participant agreement on our website. Climbers under 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult while they are here.

We offer snacks and drinks for sale, but feel free to bring a water bottle and your own power bar for extra energy while climbing.


Do I need to sign something before me or my child can climb at Little Rock Climbing Center?

Yes! Any person climbing or assisting climbers must have an up-to-date participant agreement on file at LRCC. For those under the age of 18, this participant agreement must be filled out by their parent or court appointed legal guardian. You can find the online participant agreement on our website.


What should I wear?

Comfortable clothes that you can move around in are the best bet for rock climbing. Long shorts, exercise and yoga pants offer great mobility for the climber. You can wear your own closed-toe shoes or rent our climbing shoes, which will give you a great advantage.


Do I need to have a partner, or can I climb by myself?

You don’t need a partner to get started rock climbing, but it is a great way to have fun with friends. LRCC has 10 auto-belay systems that don’t require a partner to climb. Additionally, single climbers can be challenged by our extensive bouldering area, which doesn’t require a partner.


How old does my child need to be to climb at Little Rock Climbing Center?

Kids must be at least 5 years old to climb at LRCC. They must be 13 or older to belay (work the ropes) for each other. They must be 18 or older to be at the gym without adult chaperones, unless they are enrolled in an LRCC program.

What are your hours?

Regular hours are noon – 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. Saturday and noon – 7 p.m. Sunday. Doors open for members at 9 a.m. on weekdays.
