The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighbourhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.

It's quite big, there is room for everybody and every skill level. We used to go there a lot for bouldering. We also went there once as a 18-person group, we had our private walls and place to eat.

We visited Roc Climbing Center in August of 2004. It was a little hard to find. We ended up asking a local for directions (turned out we were right next to it, but the building is not well marked).
We took a group lesson that lasted 1.5hr. The lesson includes equipment rental (no shoes and no chalk, just the harness, the belay device, etc.). There are lockers available, but there was no hot water in the shower (we stopped at Roc on our way back to Massachusetts and had already checked out of the hotel, so I wanted to rinse off before the drive back).
There were only 4 people in the group - us (a couple in late 20s), and a woman with her young (8 years old) son. The instructor was friendly and explained some basic information. It was our first time climbing so we did not know anything when we walked in.
We enjoyed the class. The price was pretty good too (I think around 35CAD per person).

To summarize,
Pros: not crowded, very large, a lot of different areas to climb, not expensive
Cons: a bit hard to find, no hot water in showers, equipment rental did not include climbing shoes or chalk (it is hard to climb in sneakers), the "lesson" did not teach us anything - how to tie knots, how to belay, etc. For that, we just went to Boston Rock Gym to a beginner lesson. This lesson ($55, 3 hours) was invaluable. The equipment rental included all gear, shoes, chalk; the instructor took a small group (5 people) and explained everything about harnesses, belaying, figure-8 knots, etc. Very informative. We can now practice on our own, which we could not do after our visit to Roc.
But overall we enjoyed it and would not hesitate to go back if we have a chance.

This HUGE indoor climbing center is located just 10-15 minutes from Montreal's downtown area. Great top rope routes as well as several large bouldering areas. Freindly atmosphere and a wide range of skill levels from begginners to very skilled climbers that train here during the winter months. Staff and members are always eager to provide tips and recommend more challenging problems.

Only downside - You have to be certified to climb here, this means you have taken an accreditation test that covers belaying with an ATC and other basic techniques. You can take the test here (on reservation, call beforehand to make appointment) or call in advance to see if they will accept your certification from another facility.
