“Great top-rope, lead climbing, and bouldering”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This place is owned and operated by a great group of people. Great for the entire family, or even solo; you can always get a belay from another friendly member too. Everyone is great, unlike other "Stuffy" gyms that can intimidate the first-timer, this place is perfect for someone learning to climb, or the 5.10 lead climber looking to improve their skills. Classes, one-on-ones, fitness training...Great place for everyone to burn some energy.
If you are visiting Vancouver and staying downtown; check this place out, but don't forget to play some tug with the mascot!

“Great climbing gym for all abilities”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

The Source is a great climbing gym with top rope, bouldering, lead climbing, and even a kids area upstairs. The gym is clean and well lit, and the routes are challenging and fun. The staff is very helpful and glad to give you tips and pointers if you are a novice, like my wife and I were when we first started. If you're in Vancouver and want to get a workout in (whether you are a veteran climber or completely new) the Source is a great way to spend a rainy day.
