Associated Content called MetroRock one of Boston’s Best Climbing Gyms: > * There’s also a 3,500 square foot bouldering wall, which is a great challenge for any climber, and an alternative to regular climbing for those intimidated by heights. – Bambi Turner, Associated Content
Five GoCityKids reviewers rate MetroRock a perfect five stars, while Yelpers and four Insider Pages users give it four-star averages. Neophytes and experts agree on the great climbing atmosphere: > * MetroRock is the best climbing gym in the Boston area. It is staffed with knowledgeable rock climbers (people obsessed with the sport) who are friendly and helpful to new and veteran climbers alike. Their “intro” class was very helpful in both the technical aspects of climbing (rope work, harnesses, belaying, etc) as well as tips for climbing more efficiently. – Craig I., Insider Pages
Within both MetroRock locations, visitors ascend via bouldering walls and rope-climbing walls or take to aerobic exercise machines and fitness equipment to build strength. With this setup available to climbers of all skill levels, the founders of the climbing arenas achieved their goal of creating a community where scalers can congregate, share their passions, and hone their climbing skills.
During indoor and outdoor classes, instructors create lessons that help each climber reach their goals. Indoor courses help instill students with basic climbing skills, rescue techniques, or the brute strength needed for bouldering or to intimidate mountains out of their lunch money. Outdoors, American Mountain Guide Association and Single Pitch–certified instructors teach alpinists skills that include how to secure top-rope anchors and how to climb ice or scale for sport. The centers' founders and their teams also organize climbing-centric programming that includes youth climbing teams and team-building events that challenge groups while forming bonds.
