    Overrated. Overpriced. Overcrowded. Seems like you'd only get the most out of this gym if you do lead. Doesn't seem beginner-friendly either. No water fountain. Staff can be a tad stuck up and not the most helpful at times — quite set back from the main climbing area. Seems to get by on historic reputation but offers very little in terms of club quality.


  • Dan Desroches

    Overpriced compared to other venues, no water fountain, lackluster routes, over crowded with meat market youngsters, more of a vanity parade than anything.. Bouldering section was decent enough, TR locations felt as though they were oddly placed on some routes. Especially the one hovering over the entrance... enjoy a boot to the face if the belayer isn't watching their surroundings. lol.. All in all a my first and last visit to this gym.

    Fantastic! I organized a meet-up group today and we had about 30 climbers come out to climb. Joe Rockheads was great - they helped us run through the belay tests efficiently so we could start climbing. Awesome experience. Can't wait for the next one.

    Ok gym. Route setting is nice and technical. They have a fantastic roof for leading. However, they really need to get with the times and start taping routes. Why only 1 route per wall????? Very severe limitation. I would only come back here for the roof.

    My friend and I took a beginner rock climing lesson with Omar. He explained everything in detail and left nothing out. He showed us how to gear up and with each topic covered he allowed us to try for ourselves. Once we mastered the basics, he supervised out climbs pointing out and correcting any errors. He was patient and very amicable with hint of humour. As for the walls, there are various levels. I was there from 7:30pm to 11pm (close) on a Wednesday night and found that at my arrival the 'afterwork crowd' was just easing out. So it wasn't so busy that anyone was in each other's way or had to wait for a wall to become available. Equipment/gear was included in our package (shoes, harness) There is no water fountain so bring your own water or you can purchase from their vending machine. Also if you're prone to hunger (like me) bring your own snakcs (banana, almonds, protein bars etc). They are equiped with lockers in the change rooms so bring a lock if you need to store your things. I defintely would recommend this establishment to my friends!! I REALLY enjoyed it! I just wish they had a location in Mississauga! Downtown is soo far!!!

    Expensive, but a fairly nice gym. Bouldering is fairly good with a variety of problems, albeit I wouldn't say their problems are all that original in comparison to other gyms I've visited. You don't walk up to many problems an scratch your head, for instance. Their change rooms are quite nice aside from a rather clear lack of lockers. On a very busy night -- nearly every night after 8:30pm or so -- all the lockers are full despite half of them not actually being locked. In this case I would advise the gym owner to install a shelf of cubby holes. Many gyms do this to accommodate both climbers whom bring a lock, and those who do not. It is a pet-peeve of mine to go through two dozen lockers -- all of which have very little in them and are unlocked to boot. For lack of a better term.. Cubby holes! Their climbing is quite good. Their grading system seems rather easy compared to most gyms, but that's just me. Their TR routes, despite only have a dozen or so, are quite different and present a variety of climbing styles in a range of difficulties. The staff are very friendly but chat at the front desk amongst themselves most of the time. Personally, I think it's pretty ridiculous seeing as there are a bunch of new climbers at this gym, but hey, as far as I know nothing has gone wrong since I've started climbing here. Rope and GriGri 1 included on every TR route. Nothing other than draws included for leading, so bring your gear.
