Our kids went to the kids that rock program. I feel there was very little climbing technique learned. The hour went like this: Stretching and getting into harnesses for about 20 minutes. Then the kids went down to the rock climbing walls where they basically...More

I live in Arizona but I have family in the Guelph area. I make a point to return to Grotto every year while visiting to get in some extra climbing time. Love this gym... Ben was great with some extra tips for bouldering!

This gym is by far the best gym I've been to in the last four years. I am not great by any means but I don't feel scrutinized by anyone. Everyone has been really cool and friendly. The runs have been challenging and it is...More
