ANYONE CAN CLIMB

ANYONE CAN CLIMB

SO EVERYONE IS WELCOME

Whether you've never climbed before or you're training to be the next Alex Honnold, whether you are young in body or young in spirit, you belong here. The Grotto is a community dedicated to welcoming current & future climbers of every age, regardless of experience or physical ability. 
 
We want the Grotto to offer you a comfortable home for all things climbing - everything from your hopes, goals, and aspirations, to your worries, anxieties, and insecurities. We are a family-run, community-oriented gym, and we strive to create an accessible and inclusive space where everyone can get on the wall.

A lot has changed since our gym was first opened by Dave Perozzo back in 1994, but our commitment to climbers of all abilities remains constant. We offer a variety of programs and classes for climbers of all ages to explore climbing, develop their strength and technique, and set and achieve personal goals. 

“We strive to create a positive environment where everyone can have fun and crush climbs! We have an amazing community of climbers that have shaped the Grotto into the supportive and welcoming gym we love."

– Dave Perozzo, Owner
