  • On a scale of 1 - 10, Grand River Rocks hits the heights with an amazing variety of indoor routes for all ages and abilities!!! The Dinosaur Climb and the Egyptian theme were at my level as a senior c...  read more »

  • It's a great attraction for the family and it provides stuff to do. However, it is very hot in there because of no air conditioning and the body, but it has some fans to help. P.S you will get blister...  read more »
  • Me and my mom had a terrible experience here. The staff and the people who climbed there were EXTREMELY rude to us. Since we hadn't been there for a really long time when we came back we were a bit unsure if the rules. When the staff/people who climbed there wanted to confirm the rules with us they said it in the rudest way possible. Every small thing we'd do (including practicing belaying with the belay training ropes) someone would tell us that's not allowed or something. Not 5 minutes would go by without someone being extremely rude to us and half the things we were doing were things we saw other people doing too! Other than that the walls itself was good.
  • Being a beginner I was a little hesitant about being able to find good rocks to train on. However I was not disappointed, they have good paths for all levels and they switch up the routes on a regular basis. Great for work parties and birthday parties. Overall if you are into climbing, this gym is worth the money!
  • There are a lot of bouldering routes that cater to all skill levels. More than enough to keep you occupied for the entirety of every visit. The routes are switched frequently enough to keep anyone from getting bored. Easily the best climbing gym I've ever been to.
  • Lots of courses of varying difficult degrees for both top roping and bouldering, big space, and they regularly change up the courses. There are auto-belays on some courses which is great for solo top roping, saves beginners the hassle of learning how to belay (which they require you to book teaching in advance for). The first time I went the staff was very friendly, the second time one staff member seemed consistently annoyed as soon as I talked to her... not a huge deal, but it was upsetting to start what was supposed to be a fun day out with such poor customer service. Otherwise a great place to climb!
  • The best around hands down. Great quality setting and attention to detail. Great staff and owners. But be forewarned if you climb here your going to be spoiled vs. any other gym ;)
