This was the first time that I went to Grand River Rocks and it was amazing. The staff was very friendly and kindly assisted my large group in a very efficient manner. I was very pleased to see that there were walls for all ages and levels. Staff was also very kind to those in the group who weren't so comfortable and quickly made everyone at ease. Words of encouragement flowed and were very much appreciated. Definitely a place to return to regularly. Two thumbs up!

The staff was very helpful and welcoming. The gym is perfect for all ages and abilities and is the most fun you can have while experiencing a full body workout. The price is well worth it if you stay for the whole day and the staff will encourage you to keep climbing and to don't give up which is nice for first time climbers. Overall GRR is a very fun place for the whole family and you can go back and back and never get bored.

I've been going to Grand River Rocks on and off since not long after it opened a few years ago and after climbing at almost every other climbing gym in Toronto/GTA/Southern Ontario I can say that without a doubt GRR is the greatest climbing gym with the friendliest community.

The staff and all the climbers are very friendly and always willing to help, the facilities are nice, clean and well taken care of and with the new expansion opening within the next month it will likely make it the premier climbing gym in Ontario. It already has the best bouldering, so count on more of that awesomeness and then a ton more toprope and lead routes and you have a recipe for success.

They also have a lot of great programs for youth, women, and everyone else with various classes being offered and hopefully more to come when the new addition (including fitness studio) opens up.

If you've ever wanted to try climbing or love climbing and are in the area, check it out!

Did I mention the prices are as good or better than any other climbing gym as well? Yup!

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The climbing facilities offer challenges for climbers of all skill levels. The addition of auto-belay routes makes solo visits possible. Bouldering/caving/cragging setup is awesome.

Turns out I'm a better climber than I thought. I am going back soon. Great atmosphere. Staff is very encouraging and supportive of first timers that... have a lot to learn.
