Is this your first time climbing?
Indoor rock climbing is an amazing experience that is both fun and great exercise. People of all ages, fitness levels, and experience come to our gym every day. Rock Spot Climbing is a state of the art facility and our dedicated staff is top-notch. We offer many options for getting started climbing and you are welcome to just walk in our door and check us out!
Options for visiting:
• For the solo climber
• With a partner
• For parents
• For groups
All our facilities are open 10am-midnight 7 days a week for all ages, all abilities!
Please note: While anyone may climb, climbers under 14 must have supervision of someone 17 or older at all times, except during official youth program classes or camps. Unsupervised climbers age 14-16 must sign in at the desk and leave a phone number where we can reach their parent.
Top Rope Climbing
In top roped climbing, a rope tied to the climber passes through an anchor at the top of the wall and back down to their partner (the belayer). As the climber moves up the wall, the belayer pulls the rope through their belay device so they can hold the climber when they let go of the wall, and slowly lower them back to the ground.
All our facilities also feature several autobelay systems on select walls that mimic top roped climbing, allowing for solo ascents.
Bouldering consists of shorter climbs that are low to the ground and does not require ropes. Climbers can use either dedicated bouldering walls or traverse along the bottom section of rope walls. When finished using a dedicated bouldering wall, climbers drop safely onto foam mats or walk down from the top. Our Boston location is the largest indoor bouldering facility in New England. All gyms feature routes of all levels of difficulty.
Many top rope climbers boulder to warm up and build their strength and climbing technique, while other climbers prefer only bouldering.
Lead climbing uses more advanced climbing and belay technques. It begins with the ropes disconnected from all anchors. The lead climber is responsible for clipping the rope into anchors set along the wall while the lead belayer gives the rope slack to accommodate the proper anchoring. Those who plan to lead climb at Rock Spot must pass a test to participate in lead climbing. We offer lessons on both lead climbing and lead belaying.
