no sandbagging here. the prices are low and the grades are tough. its rarely crowded on weekday afternoons and i have never had to wait to hop on a route. still, i have found everyone around willing to offer beta or just have a friendly chat. this isn't a fancy place, it is a great place to climb and chill. sometimes there is even a beautiful dog running around and he makes me so happy. ive been getting in three days a week and i really appreciate how easy it has been for me to get there and get on the wall.

I went and it was fun, rock climbing was very fun with certain ropes. I loved, just wished it smelled a little better.

My husband and I have 20+ years of indoor/outdoor climbing experience between the two of us - which by no means makes us experts, however, if we don't feel safe climbing here then I would caution any beginner climbers to reconsider going here. During our belay test an employee stated that he would "prefer we DON'T use a stopper knot" at the belay end of the rope, despite the fact that this is a common safety practice. They also prefer that climbers do NOT tie their own figure 8 knots, and they have figure 8's tied into every rope and taped in place so you cannot even verify or fix them if they look sloppy (see attached photo). Most of the ropes are so old and worn they're difficult to feed through an ATC. Route setting was less than inspiring.

One of the best climbing gyms in Philly. They grade properly. Except AFOD.

Go Vertical is one of the best rock gyms in the area for indoor rock climbing, particularly top-roping and lead climbing. It is also not a bad place to boulder, but there are definitely other gyms to go to that are better to boulder at. They also have auto belay devices for people who might not come with somebody who can belay them. The downside here is that there are only 2 of those, so it really is more worth it to come with somebody. The prices for rentals aren’t terrible, but I would bring your own equipment.
