No more wall closures!

No more wall closures next week! Our new heaters will not be getting installed next week. We will keep you posted on when that will be happening. In the mean time, get in here and CLIMB!

Christmas is coming!

Starting your Christmas shopping early?  Grand River Rocks sells gift cards!   Give the gift of fun!

Need ideas for stocking stuffers?  How about a chalk bag, a bag of chalk, or a chalk brush?

If you’re thinking of harnesses or shoes for a gift for that special climber?  Keep in mind that harnesses and shoes should be tried on before purchase, as we don’t do returns or exchanges.  Gift cards can also be used on gear, so your climber can pick and choose what they want and make sure the fit is perfect!

LRT Construction

If you are headed in for a climb this week keep in mind that due to LRT construction Borden Ave is now closed from Courtland Ave to just past Nyberg St. So make sure you plan ahead to come in to GRR’s parking lot from Charles St side!

LRT Construction

Borden Ave will be experiencing some road closures due to LRT construction over the next year or so.  We have been told there will always be access to our parking lot.  Don’t forget the big parking lot by Charles St. is ours!
