Central Rock Climbing Gym was unlike any place I have ever been.As it’s located in a college town, the vibe was already very eclectic and friendly from the moment we arrived. My experience could not have been more fun, I had no idea what I was doing, but who cares! I came to climb some rocks with the finish line in my mind and the strength in my heart!
Right off Rt. 9 in Hadley this spacious facility was loaded with over 200 top rope climbs and over 80 bouldering climbs. From a beginner rock climber to an expert level, there was a course for everyone. You could climb pumpkin shaped rocks or hang upside down from the ceiling. Or if you just felt like going for a run, well hop on a treadmill and work out your energy that way too.
They offer more specials than I can count on one hand: high school discounts, college discounts, even senior citizen and family discounts. I’d imagine, if there is any other kind of discount, you can probably get it from Central Rock. They have kid-friendly areas, and spots just for birthday parties (hey parents! they even lock your kids up for the night if you want!!) What’s cooler than a sleep over at a jungle gym?! It doesn’t matter how old you are to enjoy that one!
They teach belaying classes so you can come in and climb with your friends without having a staff member present- or if you don’t want your 7 year old belaying you down, come on a Saturday for open rock-climbing, where there will be an instructor to help you out!!
Take advantage of the discount passes on sweetjack.com, get em while they last! If this place doesn’t tickle your fancy, I don’t know what will!!
Thanks for the awesome time Central Rock! I will be seeing you soon!
Leave any questions or comments! I’d be happy to answer them!
