Here in Cleveland, we don’t run from adventure. We run toward it.


Here in Cleveland, we don’t run from adventure. We run toward it.

That's why the Cleveland Rock Gym (CRG) has become a staple in our community for climbers all around the area. It doesn’t matter if you have climbed mountains or have never put on climbing shoes, the experience you will have here is one of a kind.

Whether you are Top Roping (climbing high up with a rope) or Bouldering (climbing no higher than 20 ft., with just a pad to fall on) the CRG serves as a getaway for anyone looking to get a unique workout in.

Climbing at the CRG makes you forget that you're actually exercising. Climbers tend to leave drenched in sweat because they keep attempting a problem until they can barely lift their arms. With the adrenaline pumping and motivation to conquer a specific problem, you will be able to push yourself harder than if you were working out in a typical fashion. There is nothing like working on a specific route for days, then finally using all your will and intellect to complete it. These routes are called “problems” for a reason.

The atmosphere inside these walls mimic what it's like in the city surrounding them. We have each other’s back. We have fun. We work hard. Those same characteristics are applied inside the CRG. It's not uncommon to see people that may have just met helping each other figure out a problem. When they finally do figure it out, a “good job” and high five usually follow shortly after.

Half of the battle is just learning what to do, and how to make your body do it. Hearing one little trick from someone who has completed that problem might be all the difference. Luckily for us, most Clevelanders aren’t too shy, so these tips and tricks are very common.

The Cleveland Rock Gym is located at 21200 St. Clair Ave. in Euclid and is open Mon.-Fri. from 3-10 p.m. and Sat.–Sun. from 12-7 p.m.
