Looking for things to do in Guelph?

The Grotto has been a proud member of the Guelph community since 1994! As one of the first climbing gyms in Ontario we are a must-visit on your next trip into the City of Guelph.


Make a day of it! We offer a variety of climbing experiences for people of all ages and skills levels. For those over 18, finish off your climb with a drink at Royal City Brewery (located in the same plaza), or scoot across the street to refill with Na Ha Thai's Kitchen (a staff favorite)!


Our gym offers bouldering, auto-belay and top rope climbing, as well as lead climbing, and a Moon Board. If you want to come climbing without any fuss, consider booking a Just Climb Package and let our staff handle the ropes, while you focus on the climbing. 

If you're an experienced climber visiting for the day, check out our day pass options.

ATTENTION: The Guelph Grotto will be closed to the public as of March 16, to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus     |      FULL DETAILS
