Got to Kitchner a bit early and decided to rock climb to pass some time. We got there and climb and over all it was a good session. I do not have much to say about it other than it was a bit dark. There were some areas where I was climbing and I could not tell the difference between... More

This place is a lot of fun. I first found them via a friend shortly after they opened and was yanked into trying it out. My wife and I took advantage of what seems to have become their annual Valentine's belayer course special and have been hooked ever since. The routes are changed up somewhat frequently, keeping it fresh. I... More

SO HAPPY we have this here! No more road trips to Guelph! they are doing so much with this space which is just amazing! They mix up the routes enough to keep you on your tippy toes! The walls go up to about 40-60 feet and the bouldering is fantastic! CLIMB AWAY!

At my forties I finally decided to try rock climbing. Came to this gym about a year ago and now became a regular. Found people who work here very welcoming and supportive. The atmosphere is amazing, younger kids are teaching adults, everybody share good times. Even if you are not very physically active, you can start climbing and work your... More

this place is amazing. I've been to many gyms over the last ten years or so, and there isn't another one like this. The staff is all so friendly and inviting and makes everyone welcome. I love that this place is fun for people of all ages! Whether I'm there alone to climb on the auto belays or Boulder, or... More

This climbing gym is fantastic. The facility is beta than any other and has everything you'd need to enjoy a good climb or workout. The staff are friendly, send positive vibes, and are boulder than most places I've climbed, helping everyone have a good experience. I was having some troubles working a problem and one of the staff came over... More

This is one of my favorite gyms that I've been to; and I'm not just saying that because I hold a membership. I initially scouted it out prior to starting my new employment nearby and bought an annual pass the next time I went in. I have been to most of the gyms in the GTA, Ottawa, and everywhere between...

My absolute favorite place in KW. I cannot recommend Grand River Rocks highly enough. Great for first timers or experienced climbers. The staff and facility are amazing. The lounge area is great for people to hangout and watch others if they aren't climbing. See you there!
