Central Rock Gym has options for experienced, new, or young climbers! You can reserve a slot with rental gear and staff to help you try it out, take a class to learn the ropes for the high walls, jump on the lower bouldering walls with no prior experience necessary, or bring your own gear and just get a day pass.

This facility has day passes and memberships for bouldering, top-rope climbing, and lead-climbing.

My boyfriend and I did this and had a lot of fun. It was definitely a challenge! I am not an experienced rock climber at all, but as far as I could tell there were lots of different walls to climb of many different difficulties, so it wouldn't get boring or be too hard for anyone. We were in a... More

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

Last year I got my fiance a Groupon to try rock climbing and he absolutely loved it! Now we are members at this gym and go during the winter months as a great way to stay in shape when it's cold out. Everyone is always very friendly and skill sets range from beginner to expert so you never feel bad... 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!
