  • Another great weekend and another great climb. Went with the kids this past weekend and we had a lot of fun climbing and bouldering. As a GRR member I'm often there weeknights so being in on a quieter afternoon is refreshing from the crazy numbers present during the week. The pricing structure needs help. No rates for kids? What? They don't climb as much as adults and get tired or bored sooner. Much thought and improvement could be accomplished in this area. The routes which are being set are fair to their grade and engaging. I can see opportunity for a climber at any level getting involved and grow their skills.
  • This was my first time rock climbing, and I can say that it was amazing! My family and I started off with the bouldering, which was a little rough on the hands, but still fun overall. Then we moved on to the auto belays, which were the best part. We spent 5 hours rock climbing there! The prices were fair, and they have discounts for firefighters, students, police, etc. We got a family pass for 45$. 100% Would recommend!
  • Excellent staff. Beginner friendly and lots of routes to try for bouldering. Top roping and lead climbing available as well. They also sell some climbing shoes/equipment (sometimes at lower prices than MEC). LOTS of parking space.
  • It's always fun to go with a group of friends. The price is.. sort of reasonably priced? $20 for one session with an extra $5 charge for rock climbing shoes doesn't seem bad. Place is very large with many choices, friendly staff
  • I've been rock climbing both indoors and outdoor for over 20 years. This is a great indoor facility. They've always quickly addressed any issues brought to thier attention (ranging from coffee spills to a grigri that wasn't functioning properly to a rope that was pulled down by an over zealous child). My kids love it here and I'm happy to be able to introduce them to a sport that I've loved for so long.

Where to stay in Kitchener

For a relatively large city, Kitchener doesn't offer a particularly broad range of accommodations. In the city center, King Street offers a handful of mid-range hotels, but little beyond that. Your best bet is to look southeast to Centreville Chicopee, where you can find a cluster of chain hotels, or northwest to the adjoining city of Waterloo, which offers some nicer hotels by its main park.
