As a former employee of CPI take my information as you will, but I will let you know I have worked there in the past and am currently volunteering as their site admin. I would like to say that we have been looking at all your reviews and we thank you for your detailed positives and negatives. With this, we have taken your information and improved the facility; while we have not yet gotten rid of loose chalk as we prefer loose chalk when we climb outdoors on a regular basis, we have gotten rid of the nasty outdated regrind. We have also given the facility a bit of a facelift making walking in seem much more inviting. We are looking toward climate controling the facility and have improved and hounded on customer relations while weeding out employees that do not fit the friendly atmoshpere we are ultimately wanting to promote as it is highly valued within any climbing community. Keep the comments coming though we are looking at them and it is helping us improve the facility.

I love the Climbing Place. This place is for people at all levels of climbing. There are so many routes to choose from and the staff is always friendly. I've been to other places (especially in town) who seem to be elitist climbers and that is no fun. The climbing place staff is always friendly and willing to help out. They are also super flexible for military PT hours and it is a great alternative for group PT. I would recommend the climbing place to climbers of all levels!

The rubber regrind in the bouldering area is absolutely the worst idea ever conceived. Never in my life have I seen a climbing gym with that instead of gymnastic padding, and now I know it's for a good reason. The rubber mulch shifts constantly, not only meaning that you never land on stationary (but cushy) ground, but also meaning that "thin spots" develop very quickly. The crash pads (not gym grade crash pads, but actual MadRock outdoor bouldering pads) are also essentially useless because they've been broken down to the point where they're all less than 2 1/2 inches thick. It took me (a somewhat experienced and extremely careful boulderer) less than two hours to severely sprain an ankle, something which has never happened in a gym before. I spoke with one person who claimed that CPI was his home gym, and he confessed that injuries were fairly common here because of the padding that they use. I understand that climbing is inherently dangerous, and injuries are a risk we all accept, but the rubber regrind is ineffective at preventing injuries and is something I will never climb over again. Apparently Red Point has decent floors, so I'll be paying the extra $4 for a day pass to climb there instead.

Pros: It's a climbing gym.

Cons: It's a BAD climbing gym.

I did not like the rubber regrind or the recommended belay method they use, which, as someone stated earlier, has been proven to be unsafe. Also, rubber regrind is not clean... gymnastics mats are much better and a safer catch if you fall.??

Not a pleasant experience. No one has any certifications or credentials. The belay method is PROVEN out of date and NOT recommended by current AMGA (American Mountain Guide Association) standards. This is more an amusement park. I recommend RedPoint Climbing on Raeford Road. They have a credible staff with actual climbing experience and experience with AMGA courses.

My friend stepped in dog doo here. That's all I really wanted to say about this place, but apparently I need 100 characters to leave a review. Nasty.

Pros: couple of cool staff

Cons: everything else

.

Not a bad place...but compared to gyms around the nation, they are a bit dirty and out of date. Staff are okay, although most seem to have learned about climbing through books or playing on plastic.

This is a great place to spend a saturday with your kids. The staff is well trained and very caring. We spent about 3 hrs there one recent saturday and had a blast. They are all about safety but also fun. My daugher is 11 and she had the best time scalling the walls as did my friends 13 yr old son. They showed just what to do and stood by to make sure we understood everything. I would diffently go back

PROS: good time for the whole family
CONS: pricey
