CRG Watertown is an amazing gym. The setters here really know how to make the climber work for the top! The "comp" style boulders are a real hit with the more adventurous climbers and the newer VB's are great for beginner climbers and young children

This is a fun place to go with kids. It is a little expensive for a kids day pass ($18). Also you need to make sure you have be layer with you or you will be belaying. Though it is expesive it is still great.
