I love this place. The new expansion is awesome. Yoga, weight room and tons of new routes on all the new walls. The staff is great and the over all experience is worth repeating. Very nice place to take a group of friends for a great climbing and to hangout.

Huge rock climbing gym with reasonable prices, especially if you own your own equipment. They change the walls up fairly regularly, with a schedule for when each area will be updated. Recently they bought out the business next door and expanded with a huge new room, walls to the roof and a couple auto-belay locations (which are great for when... More

This place may not be perfect but it does what it does well enough to recommend it. If you enjoy climbing or want to try it out this is a place to go and challenge yourself The laid-back atmosphere is okay but perhaps too laid back. It is clean but dis-organized (maybe that is how they like it?). The staff... More

This is a great rock climbing gym, especially with their new expansion. Lots of bouldering, top roping, lead climbing, and auto-belays, all for a wide variety of climbing levels! The staff are friendly, and the atmosphere is not snobby at all (as with some other gyms I have been to).

My prior review of the gym was a 5 out of 5 but I need to change that review to include some items that should not preclude you from using this gym and more an FYI for those who climb at a more advanced level or wish to. The gym is very clean and lots of room but there are... More

Member since the gym opened in 2011. Friendly staff. Huge gym with a great variety of angles for bouldering, lead, tr and auto belay routes. Routes are regularly changed to keep things fresh.

I have traveled around Ontario for work and tried many different climbing gyms. Grand River Rocks consistently blows away the competition, and is a plus side of returning to KW. There is large selection of bouldering, top-roping, and lead climbing routes. The staff are chill, friendly, and helpful. The walls, routes, problems, vibe, location, music, offerings beyond climbing, and patrons... More

Friendly staff and more walls than you could climb in a month, which by then they will have set new routes and problems up..! The kids loved racing up the speed wall too.

I've been a member since it opened and have never had a negative experience in any way. The staff and owners are amazing people, always helpful and eager to ask questions and really willing to listen to feedback from climbers and members. Out of all the other climbing gyms I have been to over the past few years, this is... More

My friend and I were looking for something fun to do in the KW area and because of TripAdvisor we came across Grand River Rocks. My friend has never climbed before and I've only climbed a few times but it was many years ago. The staff were very friendly: they showed us around, explained how the different walls work and...
