Needs more auto belay - they have 5 lines. My small local wall in small town UK has 7. Friendly staff. Payment is card-only, so be warned foreign visitors. However, foreign/out-of-town visitors will love the one month prepaid membership, which was really smart of Hangar 18 to provide as an option. I like the route setting here on the autobelay lines better than the South Bay location, for some reason. Parking is ample. Something I really like here is the top roping on walls that simulate rock. Something I really don't like is the American Yosemite Decimal System grading - the French system is much better and global.


I absolutely love coming to this gym. This is not the closest gym to me but I drive about 30 minutes out of the way to come by. They have a variety of climbing types and styles as well as a weights area, yoga studio, and a Kilter Board! This gym really has everything I am looking for when training.The auto belay area is my favorite, the route setters set a wide variety of styles and grades on the four walls. As someone who usually boulders, I love the opportunity to do some taller climbs without a belay partner.Staff is always friendly and willing to answer any questions. The facility is kept very clean and walls are reset often. I highly recommend this location.


Nice place to get a good pump on. Staff and patrons are chill and down to help with advice.Only down side is place is kinda crowded during peak times.


Nasty attitude!!!!I scheduled an appointment for my son last week at this place, the interaction wasn’t great, however, I decided to come back to give this place a try. Unfortunately today at 2:00 pm for our first day of class; we encounter very poor customer service. Rude, no greeting, no manners, no interest in engaging or direct us at all. Perhaps this place has customers that are pros on this and happy to go to an almost empty gym, but for beginners I definitely give this place a 0. I will say if you are not happy in your work place or your business, find another carrier.


Very nice bouldering gym. Friendly staff was very helpful. Had a blast. Only if it was a little bigger.

Best Hangar 18 I’ve visited in SoCal in terms of climbing routes for beginner. The gym is large. A lot of trails both bouldering and belay (didn’t see much auto belay though). Plenty of parking including those in shades. Cool temperature. Aircon was working better than other Hangar 18 I’ve been to. Restroom wasn’t that pleasant.

There's no place to compare it to in long Beach. I'm not a fan of the more expensive climb spot on Anaheim, and everything is pretty self automated once your registered.


I went to the Hangar 18 , 3 years ago with my son. We both had a great time climbing those Walls.


Great visit to this spot, reasonable membership prices. The place is very clean all around. Not over crowded & respectful of wall sharing.

I am a beginning climber and have had very good experiences with the staff and the other climbers. The routes offer me some easy ones, some challenging ones, and some that are way out of my league. The routes have been changed up a few times since I started going a couple of months ago, and it keeps things interesting
