    Aesthetic Climbing Gym in Lake Forest and the Factory in Orange are MUCH better bouldering gyms (and less expensive!)

      @Melissa L I would definitely disagree with that, but its all a matter of preference.

      @SarahR_2538 Sender is a great Rope climbing facility, best in the area, but The Factory and Aesthetic have it beat on bouldering. Their ratings are truer to outdoor grades, and the problems have a better flow. As far as pricing, there is no denying that Sender is the most expensive gym in the area.
      ACG - day pass $15, free rentals = $15 total
      Factory - day pass $14, shoe rental $3 = $17 total
      S.One- day pass $20, rentals package $6 = $26 total
