The 40 top-roping lines provide much of the entertainment with the rope providing protection from above. For those climbers with more experience the 12 overhanging lead lines provide a greater challenge as they must clip the rope in as they go. Each line usually has three distinct colour coded routes to the top and these are changed every four months to provide continual interest. Climbing without a rope is available in the fully matted bouldering wall, where the wall varies from vertical to 45 degrees overhanging.

      Hey i am a beginner and am looking for a partner that i can learn and grow our technique together. Ideally i am looking to climb 2-3 times a week, and looking for outdoor routes for the weekends. I do not expect you to join me on every climb, however it would be nice to have a consistent partner at least for the weekday evening training at either Oasis or Toronto Climbing Academy (preferred - i live at Young and Eglinton) feel free to contact me 647 949 1890 if during the day best sent SMS messages as i work in an office.

      Hi Ross I can join you for a climb, kind of in the same boat training wise. A Lot of my other climbing partners mainly into bouldering so I'm looking to find a few more partners for doing routes and getting outside. Free most days so just give me a shout. If it's easier to txt here is my no: 07891 934 925 cheers

    Hi, a bit of a long shot since it's so short notice but worth a try. I wondered if anyone would be up for a climb today. I'd have to be out by 4.15 but if we started asap it gives us a couple of hours.

    I had my first climb here last week as a total beginner and did a course with a friend. It was perfect for my level since there are different grades to choose from. Great staff, nice friendly environment. I will be back very soon.
