Climbing at Central Rock Cambridge:
This location only has bouldering and fitness options - there’s no lead climbing nor is there toproping. The routes, however, are top notch and you’ll have a great time no matter your experience level.
More experienced climbers will find a full weight room, a section for practicing crack climbing, climbing wall treadmills, and the usual suspects for improving your game when you’re not on the wall.
If you’re new to climbing then don’t worry, you’ll fit right in. All you NEED to bring is clothes you’re comfortable moving around in - the front desk can provide you climbing shoes and chalk to supplement your day pass if you need them.
Parking and Travel: there's a long parking lot to the left of the entrance. If you can't find a spot, keep going back - there are plenty further behind. Gym is a moderate walk away from Alewife T station. Bike racks available.
Accessibility and Amenities: gym entrance has a stairway and there is a stairway leading to the men's locker room. Gym has both men's and women's locker rooms with saunas, showers, and changing rooms.
We are excited to be back and climbing to see old faces and climb with many new ones!
As we come out of hibernation, we would like to remind everyone to stay safe and respect each other's concerns for safety, this is in relation to climbing & the COVID-19 pandemic.
Climbing at MetroRock:
In order to top rope or lead, you must pass their belay test(s). Please be able to effectively demonstrate you can tie in as climber as well as belay with an ATC. You must pass both. Additionally, there are a handful of auto belay stations, if you are new to the sport. MetroRock also has a large bouldering cave and training spaces available. If you are interested in lead climbing, byo rope, and you will need to find a partner to take the test with. You must be comfortable leading a 5.9 with an unannounced fall and demonstrate proper catching techniques.
Remember to name drop! Let the front desk know you are there to climb with QUICK for a discounted day pass! If you need climbing gear, (harnes, chalk or belay devices, rope for leading), let us know ahead of time, we can help with some of that!
If this is your 1st time climbing with QUICK, we recommend reaching out to Erik, the host for the evening. They are usually in a red or blue QUICK shirt, with coloured hair, for details for that night (in case folx are running late, where to meet, public transportation info, etc).
