Fun school outing

The class really enjoyed themselves. Parents were also encouraged to participate. The instruction was good and safety procedures were in place.

My children have been in the after school program here and I find it to be an excellent place for them to learn and develop skills. Wayne, the owner is caring and personable. Other staff seem to be fairly transient, but all have been good. I feel safe and confident leaving my children here for their program. And they feel... More

My sons have been here a couple times and while climbing is fun the place is so run down and worn out (beat up paint, stained, patched pads for safety) that it's really grubby inside. This is not a cheap adventure too and if you're not ready to belay your own kids then often not enough staff to let your... More

Excellent climbing gym, wonderful experience every time. Staff are very well educated, experienced with rock climbing, and friendly. Not just the staff but also the patrons are friendly here and it makes the experience that much better - often people are swapping tips in the bouldering room and jokes are passed along in the main room. The upkeep is great,... More

I visited this evening with my two children to check out whether their after school climbing program would be a fit for my boys. One has Aspergers and the other ADHD and high anxiety. They let both the boys try out the bouldering and the roped climbs. They were caring, patient and knowledgeable. Luis, one of the instructors, was exceptional... More

I took a group of young teenagers here for a team building exercise and it was awesome. They learned to belay each other and really trust each other. The staff was patient and knowledgeable. The kids felt really confident in their abilities by the end of the day. The walls were categorized which helped our learning and our experienced figure... More

This is a great little climbing gym, whether you are an avid climber, a beginner or a parent with kids. They have a bouldering room and many top-rope climbs ranging from beginning to expert. The place obviously draws in the climbers from the area, but is it also a great place for class trips, birthday parties or for friends to... More

This is an awesome climbing gym with a range of routes from beginner to insanely hard. There are a good number of routes for each skill level and they change them every month and have a good amount of features to keep things interesting. There is also a cave that you can bolder (go without ropes) and routes specifically designed... More

We have held a few birthday parties at Rock and Rope and we have been to a few as well! The staff there are courteous and helpful and I feel very confident in the safety measures that are in place for kids. There isn't a huge place for the kids to sit and eat-you wouldn't want to take more than... More

Great little gym and gym community. Smaller walls than Toronto gyms but well rated (up to 5.11c last i checked). I've been a few times without a partner and there's always someone willing to belay although it's never too busy to find an open climb. Larger bouldering cave as well. Reasonable rates and rentals.
