Central Rock Gym Rochester officially opened Saturday, March 16th. We are so thrilled and can’t wait to meet you all and get you on some of our amazing routes and climbing terrain.
We’ll be operating with semi-limited hours until the end of March. These hours are as follows:
M – F: 10AM – 10PM

We have a 30 car parking lot in front of the building. Additionally, there is an 1,800 car parking lot on Averill Ave, just before the entrance to CRG, marked with a sign, which is free to ALL visitors of CRG. Day pass users will have tickets validated. Members will be given a garage swipe card to get in and out of the garage. We will have parking map and instructions on website in the coming days. Click here if you’re a member to register for the parking garage! You’ll be given your card in person when you come into the gym.
FAMILIES AND KIDS
The gym is full of cushy pads and bright colors that kids will want to explore, and we want them to! That said, safety is always out #1 priority, and to that end parents will need to make sure that their kids aren’t running or walking under other climbers, and that they are supervised at all times. We will be doing belay classes around the clock to get you up to speed to belay your own children! These classes are free for members, or $20 for general public, and offered on a first come first served (or you can sign up on our website for classes starting on March 24th) basis approximately every hour.
In order to maintain consistency across all Central Rock Gyms, we require our guests to use the PBUS belay technique. PBUS has been proven to be the most reliable and redundant belay method, and is what we teach in our classes and require for our belay tests. Check out this video to confirm your understanding of this technique, but keep in mind that a video is no substitute for proper instruction if you’re not familiar with PBUS.
