This place is big and cheap (especially for students), and routes are regularly reset. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Great place to climb!

What a great place for a team event. The staff were friendly and accommodating - there really isn't anything else like it around!

The instructor was well versed and assisted a group of varied degrees of expertise.

We'll certainly be back!

I can't say enough good things about Grand River Rocks!

The community of climbers fostered at the gym is amazing. I have made so many friends just by showing up and climbing. These people are friendly and supportive no matter what your skill level. There is always someone around who is willing to give advice on a problem you are working on, or give a catch.

There are many routes to climb or various levels, many styles available, and a great team of route setters who keep things fresh and exciting.

I've climbed at quite a few North American gyms and GRR remains my favourite!

I haven't been rock climbing in years. This place reintroduced me to the sport and made it so exciting! The staff is nice, the place is well maintained, and overall GRR is just a really good atmosphere.

What I like is that you don't need a reservation, you can just drop in whenever. They have the boulder and even self-belaying climbing ways, no belayer needed. It was also very reasonably priced, $17 for the day ($14 for students). You can stay as long as you like, very relaxed here.

In summary,
Go check this place out. It made me like rock climbing again!
