We try to climb when traveling for holidays or family. The Bear rock gym is in an industrial park in a high bay building. Lots of surface area to climb on and there is a large central island to climb on as well as around the inside walls. Full range of difficulties with bouldering, top roping and lead climbing. Well...

I have been here a few times with Cub Scout and Boy Scout outings. Great way to not worry about weather to get acquainted with rock climbing. There are plenty of instructors available to make sure it is a safe experience.

We thought it was a great experience! It was more intense than we thought as we had never rock climbed before. It was worth the money and a great fun work out!

If you love climbing, having a rock gym in the area is definitely a benefit. They offer instruction if you've never climbed too. My husband and I enjoy climbing and it's nice to have a good place to go no matter what the weather. The Rock Gym is clean and well-managed.

I went here with some friends because we wanted to try something different. It was fun but I was not very good at it. My one friend liked it so much, she got a membership and goes there often.

Super bad experience here. Group rates are higher than individual and group participants are limited in what they can do. Doesn't make sense. Not really other rock climbing options in the area but taking this group to a movie would have been a better choice.

My 12 year old went here for a birthday party and she's been itching to go back ever since. GREAT time for kids and adults.
