    Hey TCAers! I'm looking for a partner to do top rope with 2-4 times weekly (after 6:30pm weekdays, anytime weekends). I climb 5.10+, but I don't care if you're higher or lower :) I'd be interested in sessions around 1-1.5hr long. Cheers!

    not a bad gym, the staff is very helpful. Just wished there were more people to belay with during the weekends, when you visit alone. Bouldering section is challenging, but exciting, and will definitely come back in the future.

    I'm a fairly new climber (eight months in) and I recently moved to Toronto. After a long "shopping around" period in which I climbed at all the major gyms I decided to make Toronto Climbing Academy my home gym. It's easily comparable to True North in terms of size, route options, number of boulder problems, and workout area. The only major difference is the lack of slack line, which I have no personal interest in, different workout equipment, and seemingly more diverse boulder problems. This place embodies what climbing is all about — no "salesman"-style employees, a good comfortable crowd of regulars, helpful and encouraging staff (I've had staff members come up to me and high five or hug me when they see me do something I haven't before), an emphasis on safety and a very open, social community. I know this is a silly thing to mention, but the bathrooms/change rooms are also extremely nice — I feel alright showering here, unlike other places where I get a tad sketched out. Overall I'd say TCA and TNC are tied for the two best climbing gyms in Toronto (location gave TCA the edge for me). Highly recommended for beginners and elites.

    TCA has some great walls with some great routes. The bouldering section is pretty large and as well, offering challenges for all types of climbers. The one criticism I will make of TCA is that the staff aren't very friendly. I feel like there is an "in-group" "out-group" mentality, and new climbers are on the outs. The service isn't bad enough to stop me from climbing at TCA, but it's the one thing I'd change about the gym.

    Solid all around gym with a nice boulder area and lead climbing arch. Route setting has good flow to it and variety. Route grades are sometimes "soft" and overgraded.

  • Sarah

    The place is quite large with a good variety of terraine to climb. Staff could be a little more friendly and welcoming to new climbers. Good training provided. Safety is paramount which is important to me.
