Grand River Rocks reviews
If you’re looking for a great place to hang out, a solid rock climbing gym or just a place to workout, GRR is by far the best in town! I’ve been coming here for a while and have nothing bad to say... more »
I've been going here for over 4 years, surprised to see any bad reviews. Everyone is friendly when I come and go and they're always helpful. My favourite time to climb is in the early mornings... more »
As an all around perfect place to scurry around, I find this place decent and extra special. There are routes here that make you think, and people are eventually friendly and have lots of interesting and fun things to say. The overall atmosphere is pleasant, and a bit squishy, but otherwise favourable for a small vacation from the heat of outdoors and life in general. Peace.
I have one major complaint! I find it infuriating that they won't let you stand on the mat for even a second just to show a friend something. It's a ridiculous rule. Even if you're not in anyone's way, you're not standing there while someone is climbing, they'll tell you to get off. If you want to show a friend how to grip a hold, or switch feet or anything, tough luck! Out of all the gyms I've been to this is the only place that does that. Much of what I love about climbing is community and working together. Not here though. If you're an experienced climber thinking of introducing friends to climbing or generally like working on problems with people, go elsewhere. RESPONSE: That doesn't help. Climbers are respectful. They always provide space for climbers to climb on their turn. So intuitively if there is 15ft clear to my left and right, and I explicitly say to the staff "I just need one second to show him how to switch feet", I was certain they'd say okay. You're not using intuition, it's a trump card. Perhaps it's for the greater good in your eyes and for your business, but if you care for the climbing experience of your customers, then there has to be a better way - especially if you're literally the only gym that I know if who does this.
