Great climbing gym with excellent bouldering area upstairs. Wide variety of problems from V0 to V12 when I visited. Just be aware that it is graded very easy. Ego boosting but not too realistic! Great experience overall, including the clean showers. Bring a lock if you want to use the free lockers.Original recommendation
Their facilities are clean and well maintained, the setters are fantastic and knowledgeable, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and they offer a wide variety of services. They have many different classes to offer, from belay classes, to climbing technique classes, to yoga and fitness classes.
Best climbing gym in the Portland area. Top rope, lead climbing, bouldering, and even crack climbing, with routes changed out regularly. Clean and well kept facilities. Plus everything you need to work out. A great place and a great value.
They have an amazing selection of routes and the gym is an extremely fun environment

I love this climbing gym. It provides a lot of variety for climbing and my daughter and I are constantly challenged by the route-setting. The people that climb here are a great combination of focused and welcoming. The staff is also welcoming and very helpful. I strongly recommend Planet Granite Portland.Original recommendation
Hands-down phenomenal climbing gym. Clean, well-kept facilities, wide range of difficulty levels for both bouldering and top rope, and very entertaining problems. The bouldering area has two things I haven't seen in other gyms: a section where you can top-out and then walk down from the top of the bouldering wall, as well as a long inclined section that is as long as a top rope pitch but the mat rises with you. It's perfect for practicing long inverted routes without the need to lead climb! It wasn't crowded at all this Saturday, so my brother and I had our pick of whatever routes we wanted all morning. Can't wait to go again!!Original recommendation

My 5 year old son did the half day 1pm to 5pm drop in rock climbing camp. I really liked how flexible and accommodating they were. They allowed us to buy individual days as we did not know how our son would like it. It turned out that he loved climbing walls. What 5 year old kid doesn't?? The first day he climbed all the way to the top and was fearless. His instructor was Kara, a super sweet and patient instructor. The half day rate 1pm to 5pm is $56. While the instructor is working with other kids climbing on the wall, the other kids get to play around or do arts and crafts.Original recommendation
LOVE this gym. From the climbing, to the yoga, to the staff. It gets crowded but what cool stuff doesn't?! We climbed at the "other" main climbing gym and never felt welcomed there. If you aren't in the locals group, well, "you aren't really welcome but we want your money" was how i felt about the "other" gym. But I did love their auto belay.Original recommendation
... This gym has perfect locker rooms, amazing yoga and fitness classes and above all...awesome climbing.
