I recently purchased the Groupon for CRG and have not been disappointed. The beginner belay class was quick and painless, and yet very informative. The gym itself can get crowded at times, but has an awesome variety of beginner through expert walls. I've been back several times- tons of fun!

Great place to go for excellent rock climbing for all levels, bouldering and 45' walls. Staff is friendly and very informative. They also offer gear rental.

I have been here several times over the past 5 years and always have a great time...very family friendly. Birthday parties are a nice option. Plenty of very good instruction as well as plenty of instructors available at any time.

It isn't a very large rock gym, but boy you can sure get a great work out there. There are plenty of routes my level of experience and fitness. (I've been climbing for many years, but not too often anymore)

I have two adult children who are into climbing and love this place. The monthly pass is a nice thing while they're home from college. Two younger kids also enjoy it. A good activity; they'll allow a couple of visits for one admission price per day.

So I started in this gym out of the blue 6 months ago. Being a new climber I was pleased at the friendliness of the staff and the patrons. The vibe there is really relaxing. The climbing has been good and challenging enough to keep me challenged. The routes change on a gold interval, allowing you to have some familiarity... More
