FAQ

When can I climb?
 What do I need to bring?
  • The Co-op is bouldering only. No harness needed.
  • Street shoes are not permitted in the climbing area. Our goal is to preserve the climbing and landing surfaces as long as possible.
  • Complimentary climbing shoes are available.

Can I bring friends?

Under 18, what do I do?

  • Access Pass purchases for anyone under 18 must be approved by the Co-op board. Please submit your request by email to info@mnclimbingcoop.com
Can I bring a group?
  • Please send an email to info@mnclimbingcoop.com.

Can I "work for trade"?
  • The only opportunities that are considered "work for trade" would be services that are determined essential for the Co-op.

    Example 1:  During the initial phase of the Co-op, we needed to put together bylaws and articles of incorporation to make everything legit. A lawyer was essential to make this happen.

    Example 2:  During the construction phase there were many people that wanted to "work for trade." In this case, it would have been very helpful to have extra hands but it wasn't essential to complete the build. The board members were to dedicated to see this thing through with physical and monetary investment. That being said everyone, including board members, have paid for a membership.
