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.

I love this place. However, the route setting is not frequent enough. After 3 months all routes should cycle. Otherwise it gets boring and holds are gross. Please change out quicker than four or even five months.

Love this place but they’re letting it go. The shower facilities are worse than your high school locker room. Light bulbs out everywhere. Outlets with exposed wiring. Rat poison in the corner. I found a screw on the floor of the shower recently. Tried bringing it up to the staff. Emailed the manager. No response. No changes. The climbing is fun but the facilities are so neglected. Sad. Used to love it here. Been coming for four years.

We had a fun time! It was mine and my husband's first time, so we needed to do the belay course and our instructor was thorough and helpful. It was busy, but there was still plenty of wall space.

I love climbing here. The routes are well thought out and challenging. They range from 5.6-5.13a. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Options for lead climbing and top rope. They also have yoga classes and a full gym. I've been a member here off and on and would highly recommend it.

One of the best climbing gyms around! This gym offers a good amount of walls of different ability levels, and is great to take people to learn how to climb. I loved my time climbing here! I'm not huge into climbing so I cancelled my membership because I wasn't going often enough to make it worth it, but that's on my own self interest! I'd go back on a buddy pass or a day pass every once in a while just to experience climbing again!

Sandy Momentum was the first of the Momentum gyms, and it's still great. It's very crowded in the winter evenings, so, best to go on off hours if you can. We need more gyms in the area to cover the demand!

Went to the sandy location for the first time today. Not super busy from 1-3 on a Sunday which was nice. Belay tests were a joke, safety does not seem to be the top priority there, but sometimes that's better than the places that grill you every time like it's your first time. My daughter is 9, she enjoys the bouldering (they have kid specific areas) and some of the easy top rope routes, but at 55lbs, trying to lower her is almost impossible on some of the ropes because there's a lot of friction built in to the systems (this is generally a good thing, especially if you're belaying someone heavier than yourself). I'd give it 5 stars, but the walls look a bit beat up from the lead climb draws, and several areas that are for crack climbing didn't seem to get any use, which is a shame.

I’ve been coming to this gym for years and all in all the experience has been a positive one. The routes are fun and creatively set and the staff are usually friendly. However, the gym could definitely be cleaner. They claim to be doing increased cleanings and I’ve never seen it. The weight area is definitely the dirtiest and it’s the only gym I’ve ever been to where staff doesn’t periodically wipe down equipment. Also the gym is always incredibly busy, it can be hard to find any room to boulder on weekdays after 5 until close. I’m not going to rate negatively because of it, climbing is just a really popular sport in Utah. I do wish the gym would stop marketing so hard, y’all have enough people in there already!

Went here for my birthday, at first we were helped by a tough looking employee with a nose ring! He then helped me and my group with my the belay certification and was very kind. He let us climb all the way until closing time! Would recommend coming here!

Mostly go to sandy location. Great climbing, welcoming people / environment. Climbing for years, but first year indoor climbing. Took a few lessons and really impressed with instructors, really improved my game!!

We are doing the 2 week free trial. It isn't really free but discounted. It includes all you need shoes, belay & chalk too. So a little misleading but it is $39 for 2 weeks and that includes 2 free classes that are normally $59 each class. My girls feel confidant in belaying in just one day of training. I do not think we will pay the monthly fee because it is so pricey but $39 for 2 weeks is worth it 👍

We loved Karlie (sp?)! She was wonderful. She did a fantastic job explaining technique and terminology and really helped us feel comfortable with the surroundings. And she made sure to answer all our questions and concerns. 5/5 stars and 2 big thumbs up!

Somehow Momentum manages to remove my reviews.Regardless, I’ll continue to love Momentum, except for the way the team coaches, especially one in particular who’s name starts with a P and rhymes with calmer, conduct themselves and control their teams. I have personally witnessed P-calmer encourage team kids to cut in front of other patrons, and have them do 4x4s on routes that countless others are trying to have fun on. I have even had a swarm of children under team rule bombard me on the fitness deck and all push push me away from the hang board I was STANDING UNDER AND USING. Another time I was stepped on while having a stretch. Neither time did I receive an excuse me or an apology.Wonderful cracks, decent fitness deck, great setting (especially Jakes routes,) and good hours. Just cannot complain enough about the way the youth teams and their leaders behave.Teach etiquette and manners and these feelings that radiate to others than myself, can be rescinded.Will post continuously until my post stop being deleted or the problem is resolved. Whichever is the latter.

The GM at Sandy doesn't appear to be a good GM. I believe his name is Eric. His customer service skills are poor and all he seems to care about is the bottom line/his bonus/money. He does not care about me as a member of his gym. Also he does not seem to train his employees well. I saw him interact with a customer trying to figure out a course for some younger students and he just seemed money focused and did not want to try to help this group out. I get it, it's a business, but you don't necessarily need to show those business cards to your customers. There is a way to talk to customers and not be money centric. My personal experience with him also was not great. I was told by one of his employees that I could sign up for two - two week trial memberships. I was signed up for the first and when I tried to sign up for the second he was the one "helping me". He said I could not do that. I understood that that was the policy but when I previously asked if that was allowed and told yes, I felt that he should have made an exception. He did not. He did not even apologize. He just said that he would correct his employee. The funny part is that I went back and a friend got a second two week trial and then I decided to do the same. So on top of everything, he must not be training his team on what the policy is. So I just think he is a horrible GM. Mainly because he did not handle those two experiences with good customer service.

Hey I am member here and I love Sandy momentum. You really need to pay attention on kids. I usually only do boulder. There are so many cute kids jump, roll over and run fast, chase after each other. I have to very careful when I do boulder, if I drop, I might hit them. I like kids but I don’t want them stay in the area where I can drop. You need to provide tutorial and instructions for those fist time visitors !!! I think they are not mean to it but it’s super dangerous. Although they all sign the waiver but still you should do your job to educate kids in order to avoid accident!

I’m just getting into climbing and momentum is super nice cause I can do all the climbing I want. Quality is great and everyone is super friendly. As someone who also has a vasa membership it is really nice to implement climbing into my workout split so that I can get stronger even faster. I think the only “downside” to that it is a smaller gym and it can get crowded in the evenings. Other than that it’s great!

We did an introduction to belay and the instruction was great and the support was wonderful! She (I wish I remembered her name because she was terrific, 6p Sandy 10/14) spent time with us to teach and get us to a point of feeling comfortable. What a great way to start to learn and introduction to the facility!

I can't say enough good about this place. Jeff taught us our belay class. He was great everyone is so positive and helpful. Staff and clients. Week with it team building for my boys, great exercise and confidence boosting. I don't think I'd be able to get back into to climbing, but they made it possible!

Friendly staff. Different locations, plenty of variety in climbing and fair price. Yoga too. Annnnnd they follow CDC guidelines, which means masks off June 1st! Other climbing gyms aren't even talking about it yet.
