I've been a member at both the Hadley gym and the Worcester gym. CRG is a great place for beginners and advanced climber for a really excellent price. Along with bouldering, top rope, and sport climbing, there are yoga and fitness classes every day. They set new climbs frequently so you've always got new challenges. Plus you can use your... More

Super friendly and helpful staff. Awesome climbs... It's been a long time and 2 kids since I climbed and a first time for my husband and we had a blast. But we will be feeling it tomorrow! I'd definitely come back!

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!

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)
