What's the Difference Between Bouldering / Top Rope / Lead Climbing?

Bouldering is climbing up to 15ft (in gym) off the ground without the use of ropes or climbing gear. Pads are provided throughout the bouldering areas and participation in a Safety Orientation is required prior to climbing. This type of climbing is available to climbers of any skill level and does not require a partner. 

Top Roping is climbing up to 50ft (in gym) on a rope that is already attached to the top of the wall while being belayed by a certified partner below. This type of climbing is available to climbers of any skill level and requires a partner(s). Belay certification is required prior to climbing. Belay Classes are offered daily, visit a location’s “classes” page for more information or to sign up.

Lead Climbing refers to climbing on our full height walls in areas that do not already have a rope attached at the top. Unlike Top Roping, Lead climbers must bring the rope with them as they progress up the wall. Leading is an advanced form of climbing and not recommended until you have a strong Top Rope climbing foundation. Lead Certification is required prior to leading in our gyms. Classes are offered several times a month at our rope gyms, please review the requirements prior to signing up for this class on a location’s “classes” page.

  • Please note:
    • Momentum Lehi, SODO, and Silver Street are Bouldering Only gyms.
      Momentum Millcreek, Sandy, and Katy offer both Rope Climbing and Bouldering.
    • We do not allow anyone other than Momentum employees to provide belay instruction inside our gyms. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • All visitors are required to fill out a waiver, including spectators.

  • Rope Climbers must be belay certified prior to climbing.

    • If you know how to belay, visit the Front Desk to get certified.

    • If you do not know how to belay, sign up for our Learn To Belay Class!

  • Lead Climbing requires a 35meter rope, certification, and ability to climb a 5.10 test route.

  • Exercise equipment use is first come first serve.

  • Climbing Shoes, Harness, and Belay Device rentals available at Front Desk.

    • We do not provide or rent out lead ropes.

This gym is fantastic. The first thing you notice when walking in is the scale of the massive lead climbing wall they... have. The routes are always fun and the bouldering wall allows you to practice a wide variety of climbing skills.Currently they have a special deal- $39 for 2 weeks of rentals and a membership. I highly recommend it for anyone considering climbing as a new hobby! If you plan on top rope climbing, you’ll need to have a belay certification. The two week membership includes a free belay class so you can belay your friends!At momentum you’ll find-Bouldering-Top Rope-Lead climbing-Speed climbing wall-Free weight gym-Yoga classesAll in all, the membership is entirely worth it if you’re looking for a new climbing gym! Routes are changed frequently and I appreciate the range of climbing levels they cater to. I started climbing at this gym and am grateful I did! Staff is super helpful and friendly and I’ve always felt comfortable asking questions whenever I need.Climbing classes and youth camps are also offered. I should also note that every climber you meet here is super friendly!Overall, Momentum is a great climbing gym for advanced and beginner climbers alike- come climb with us!read more

Could use more 5.9s/10as but the routes are challenging and fun. Clean, expansive but also EXPENSIVE!! Wish there were... better deals for the average Joe to climb. Maybe a weekday/midday pass option?I like that they've added more equipment to the gym it just feels super dirty. I wonder if anyone ever gets up there to clean it. Love the new yoga room but was a bit frustrated with the calendar listings. The postings are not reliable. Say that there's a class and you get there and no one's there. I did mention this to the front desk staff and they told me look into it.read more

This is a great place to go climbing. The staff are great too! The routes are switched out regularly. There are also... expiration dates on the routes which is super helpful if you have a project you're working.Momentum has multiple gyms and if you have a membership, it works at all locations, meaning no additional fees are charged if you use another gym.read more

Our daughter climbs with the kids class every week and she has grown from a complete beginner to a competent climber.... The facility is huge and caters to a wide array of climbing skills.

It's a good gym. A day pass is $20 and the facilities are clean. The route setting is good and it's a bit on the softer... side. I'd say a V5 here would be a V3 or V4 in my gym (Planet Granite Sunnyvale). I had difficulty breathing because Salt Lake City is at 4000 ft elevation but we all know having enough air is aid.read more

These gyms are big and have lots of climbable area but they are incredibly packed during the rush hours. So much so... that sometimes you have to wait a good chunk of time to get back on a wall. If you prefer to climb very early or late this place is wonderful. There is some fitness equipment at every location but not anything like a full gym. Overall not bad and not bad excellent.read more

I love momentum and being a member there. The Climbing, staff, and community are all great. I climb and lift weights... there. They are great for families and climbers of all levels.My complaints are that I wish they opened early on Sunday in Sandy. I also get frustrated when they close half of the gym for competitions and don’t provide members any compensation for the disruption.read more

Visited my friends in Salt Lake City and they took me to their climbing gym. I don't climb often but love when I do and... this was a great experience. The top rope climbing walls are so tall! I looked down as I was most of the way up and was not prepared for that view. It makes your climbs even more fulfilling.An adult day pass cost $20 plus $9 for shoes and harness. My friends have the membership and get great value out of it ($70 month). There was plenty of bouldering and gym options as well. Plus, you're right next to an REI! Can't beat that value.read more

I really enjoyed my day here. The staff was very friendly and helpful in orienting me. I have been before, but it was... about 4 years ago, and I came with a group that was new to the place. So we needed some help figuring where to go and what to do. The staff was great at that. The climbs are also very challenging and fun.read more

A fun way to workout that deviates from the traditional gym norm. I really enjoy that there is workout equipment as... well to add some variety to your workout. Not to mention climbing is just plain and simple fun. I love that the routes get reset every so often too, keeps things spicy!read more

We were in Salt Lake City visiting. We have three young girls ages 11,8 and 5 years. They were new to this experience,... so we didn't know what to expect. The team welcomed us, gave us great instructions, taught them how to fall off the wall properly, and encouraged them to have fun. It was amazing, We went twice while we were visiting. Thank you so much for the great experience. We will definitely be back. I would highly recommend this place. There's so much to do, and so many levels of climbing.read more

I'm fairly new to climbing. I used to go only once or twice a month when I lived in CA, but I have been loving Momentum... so much, I got a membership so I can go several times a week! I feel like my climbing skills have improved just with praactice, but I'm taking a class next week to take it to the next level hopefully! The staff here is always helpful and professional, and they do a great job keeping the place clean.read more

I think the only cool things about this gym is the overhang on the lead climbing and the bouldering section. But, the... holds need cleaned, there is way too much chalk on them where it is slippery when you climb. They don't let you use the speed wall even if you have experience, they say the auto belay is dangerous when they don't even have a safe way to clip it in. You have to be certified to go on the speed wall at this gym which doesn't make any sense, because other gyms allow it. The last thing is the staff. They don't greet you when you walk in and they don't give a lot of information about rock climbing.read more

A paradigm shift in personal fitness. Your standard customer might make note of Momentum's high-traction wall surfaces... or emphasize route variety as representative of a well-designed and maintained indoor climbing gym. But what really impresses me is how Momentum stands at the nexus of local culture, personal fitness and modern sport climbing.read more

-Lots of routes/problems being created weekly. Good quality holds. (Routes/problems can be a little repetitive: only... crimps on one, or only pinches, only slopers, etc.)Needs more variety. edit: they've improved a bit on this.-Great staff.-Good atmosphere-Clean-Has been getting VERY crowded during 'after work/school' hours.read more

Absolutely disgusted with you. It makes no sense to force people to wear a mask while working out. You are a gym and we... have the right to oxygen.Your manager Chris Healey got in my face to tell me to put on a mask when no one else was around me and I was simply picking up my child and I was trying to keep a distance with people.I have video recordings of other climbers in your gym while I was there who were improperly wearing masks yet, you harass me and kick me out like I’m some criminal. You’ve officially lost another customer and I am spreading the word about this.read more
