Not the most "hard core" climbing gym, but still a very good place

Disclaimer: I'm not a "hard core" climber, and Metro Rock in Everett and CRG Watertown seem more "serious". That being said, this is my home spot 3-4 days per week. Why? Well, the... read more

Disclaimer: I'm not a "hard core" climber, and Metro Rock in Everett and CRG Watertown seem more "serious". That being said, this is my home spot 3-4 days per week. Why? Well, the climbing is good, and the route-setting has gotten noticeably better over the past few months. It's a huge, gorgeous space, too. Gym facilities are ok, and improving... More

I've wanted to get into climbing and thought it perfect to visit here while in Boston! The staff were very friendly and I received a two + hour lesson on learning the ropes. I certainly left more knowledgeable than when I arrived. Due to the instructors being reviewed by the powers that be that day, I actually got on the... More

Lots of bouldering here with varying difficulties. Also 6 auto belays with one of them on the 50' wall. My favorite here is the bouldering but the auto belays are very good for someone that has no climbing partner - me. I would recommend the 10 day pass from rush 49 because you can get a great deal from them.

I took 3 experienced grand daughters to climb. This place is huge, with bouldering, auto belay, and ropes. In addition there is a gym on the premises as well as showers. The equipment seems well maintained, and lessons and programs are offered. We had a very good bouldering class with Dan. If the front desk had been better, I would... More
