Can I climb for free?
Is there a Birthday Party Room?
Yes! We have a $250 birthday option that includes a 2-hour private room that seats approximately 30, a dedicated staff member for safety and assistance, fountain drinks for guests, a Climbing Cafe T-shirt for the birthday kid, climbing and gear for 15 (+ $8 for additional climbers).
Can I rent the entire Climbing Cafe facility for a private event?
Yes, time and price must be negotiated with the owner. Call or visit for details.
Do you ever close early?
Yes, if we are within an hour of closing and haven’t had a customer for a while, we’ll close early. If it’s late at night and you don’t see the flashing “OPEN” sign from the street, we’ve probably already finished cleaning and clocked out early. Call 812-244-1776 if you’d like to climb late and we will accommodate.
What drinks do you serve?
Healthy smoothies, Coca-Cola fountain drinks, specialty green and black teas, delicious Rex coffees and coffee-related frozen, iced, or hot drinks.
Can I drop my kids off and run errands?
While we aren’t interested in becoming a day care option, we are happy to host responsible kids that have climbed in our facility before and are active members. They need to be at least 10-years-old, and we must have emergency contact phone numbers.
Occasionally we’ll offer “Hot date nights” for parents that want to drop of kids for 3-5 hours. These events will be available to members only, we’ll have additional staff on shift, and the kids will have active supervision.
Do you serve sandwiches?
Yes, we have Boar’s Head meats and cheeses on several bread options, either cold or heated on a panini press.
What kind of smoothies do you have?
We use fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. We have several liquid options (Whole, soy, almond, 2%, coconut water, juice), several protein choices (Chocolate or vanilla, normal or vegan). There are some additional items like matcha, maca, creatine, etc., that have slight up-charges. Ingredients are mixed together with ice in our Vitamix blenders.
Are the frappes any good?
We are trying for the best frappachinos in the Wabash valley. We use a single shot of espresso, mix it with a desired flavor (Caramel, hazelnut, french vanilla, white or dark chocolate), add milk, sweetener, and a binding agent, then mix it with ice in the Vitamix blender. Top it off with home-made whipping cream and drizzled caramel or chocolate.
Can I climb barefoot?
No. Climbers must wear shoes. Seriously…People don’t want to see your bare feet, and they don’t want to touch a hold that someones sweaty feet were on.
If I'm not climbing, can I walk on the mats?
Yes, just remove your shoes. Wearing socks is recommended.
