This past weekend I held a 30th Birthday Party for my boyfriend at City Climb Gym in New Haven. Eleven of our closest friends and one of the cutest children I know, harnessed up and hit the walls for two jam-packed hours of climbing!
The staff was amazing. We are a rowdy group with a variety of skill levels, so the staff gave a great intro and we were off! For birthday parties, the gym supplies a belayer (someone to work the rope for the climber), shoes, harness, and the birthday boy even gets a shirt! It’s the perfect winter activity.
I would highly recommend City Climb Gym. All ages and abilities are welcome- we experienced that first-hand. The gym is well-staffed, clean, and even offers activities like a slack-rope (basically a tight-rope), a “bouldering” room, and other specialty classes such as yoga for climbers. They even offer a belay course for those wishing to get certified!

I know we will definitely be back!
