Over 25,000 square feet of the climbing surface is available at each location. With walls up to heights of 50′ and routes up to 70′ long, our gyms cater to competitive and recreational climbers alike. Each gym also features unique climbing features such as the full-training areas and giant bouldering mushroom in Ann Arbor, and the 15-meter official competition speed climbing wall and ice climbing training area in Madison Heights.
Both beginner and experienced lead climbers will find routes that are both technical and fun. Our dedicated lead climbing walls have extensive lines and challenging features, while our bouldering areas offer interesting topography and an innovative mat system for softer landings. Read more
Their routes are very creative and very fun to climb. They provide various courses, from kids program to multipitch climbing class for most types of climbers to improve.
The staff is super friendly. Some of the staff and people bring their super chill craig dogs. The environment is super chill and laid back. The manager is super active on the floor and is always helping people. The place is always clean. The routes never stay on the wall too long. The routes are set in a very even manner. So there are just as many beginner routes as there are advanced. The place is excellent for lead training. The bouldering cave is amazing as well.
They are just great. I live in Pennsylvania now, but I used to live in Ann Arbor. The workers are great, and they help you learn your body’s strength and how to get stronger.
Keeps all of us here in the mitten climbing! Without them we would be in despair ;)
Great gym with great employees! The new bouldering area kicks ass, and the lead walls have cool shapes and lots of great routes to get on. Plus, yoga classes.
I started climbing here the last year of college (early spring of '17) and fell in love with the sport. Since then I have been to 11 other gyms across the country, but mostly the mid-west. Every time I go to a new gym I end up finding a reason to like this gym more. The staff is always happy to help with any questions ranging from beta on a problem to finding the right pair of shoes to places to go climbing outdoors. ...Original recommendation
Overall I would highly recommend it to anyone at any level. If you are brand new they will take care of you and make sure you know what you are doing to stay safe and you still have a blast. ...
Had my daughters bday here (she turned 5) and the instructors did a great job with the kids. Nice facility, great instructors - would highly recommend for a kids bday party.Original recommendation
In the past year or so that I've been a member, Planet Rock Ann Arbor has really been renovated. New flooring in the main section, completely new bouldering section opened up, AC installed for the summer, lots of newer holds, and they've been changing up top rope and lead routes more consistently. Oh, plus they've started yoga and aerial silks classes!Original recommendation
... Only downside... parking blows and it can get packed since this is one of the only gyms in the area.
