Hub Climbing Testimonials

Great fun! Had a phenomenal time. I would recommend first time climbers or people who haven't been climbing in a while to go there. With that being said they have walls for every level. Great crowd, walls, and service.

We Were Once Beginners Too

Message from the founders Steven, Rob and Yoav:

We tried climbing for a fun day experience, 20 years ago. We had no experience and found that it was hard to get started with all the gear and complex lessons. We also found it intimidating to be forced into climbing on advanced walls that we didn’t yet feel comfortable with.

With Hub Climbing, we wanted to create an environment where you can just come in and have fun without experience. And where you can choose from many different beginner climbs without being forced to do stuff beyond your comfort level.

We are proud to offer you an environment that is designed from the ground up for beginners and where you can learn climbing at your own pace. As your climbing skill deepens, you will find that the facility has advanced climbing challenges that will continue to challenge you.

We are thrilled to be a part of your growth and to welcome you to the Hub Climbing Community!

New to Climbing FAQs

I am a beginner. What package do you recommend to get started?

  • Hub Climbing Mississauga recommends the Intro: Belay lesson for all beginners. It is a great first time climbing experience. The class runs for about 75-90 minutes. Once you complete it you will be able to access more challenges than you could with bouldering or auto-belay climbing alone.
  • Top rope has long been the traditional way that people learn to climb. As you are harnessed in and attached to the wall, you can rest when you get tired without the pressure of holding on, This is not possible with bouldering and autobelays.
  • Bonus: You will learn a great new skill!

On a day pass may I supervise my own children?

Yes! Make sure each child who is bouldering is directly supervised by an adult who has recently taken our bouldering orientation. Make sure there is at least 1 adult directly supervising no more than 2 children climbing. If you are bringing children, please make sure their waivers are filled out by their parents or a court-appointed legal guardian (we will ask for documentation)

What should I wear?

Wear something comfortable that is loose and/or can stretch, such as yoga or running attire. Jeans, for example, are not recommended as they are made of a stiffer material and may restrict your movements on the climbing wall. All climbers are required to wear rock climbing shoes. If you don’t own a pair or simply forgot yours at home, we do provide rentals for the day (socks are recommended). Climbing shoes are great for climbing but can be uncomfortable when worn for long periods. We recommend you bring flip flops, sandals or Crocs for your time between climbs. In case you don’t have a pair, ask our staff and we’ll lend you a free pair for the day.

And remember to avoid wearing anything that has attachments or parts that dangle off or can get stuck in the rocks or autobelays, etc. Eg hooped earrings are a big no-no!

What is a Day Pass?

A Day Pass is good for the entire day. For example, you can come at noon, climb for 90 minutes, head out for lunch, come back and climb more! Your rentals are good all day as well.

How long should I plan a visit to last?

This will depend on what type of climbing you would like to do. If you would like to just boulder and use auto belays, we recommend under 2 hours at the facility. The sport takes it out of you more than you think and climbing past 90 minutes isn’t recommended as mistakes tend to happen past that due to fatigue.

How much climbing would we expect to get in during our visit?

This is somewhat of a hard question to answer because it is a little subjective, but depending on what your base fitness level is and what type of climbing you are doing (bouldering or autobelay or top rope) we find that our guests get more than enough climbing in during a regular 1.5 hour climbing session. If you have never climbed before it can be quite startling how tiring it can be, so make sure to plan in rests and hydration breaks. It always helps to spend some time watching other climbers to pick up tips and make your rest period that much more exciting.

Must I make a booking or can I just drop in?

Bookings are no longer required at this location.

Am I too old to climb?

Short answer, nope! We have members and guests of all ages.

How old does my child need to be to climb?

A child must be at least 4 years of age climbing AutoBelays and top rope. A child must weigh at least 30 lbs to use our auto belays. For bouldering, children should be 6+ due to this activity being a little bit higher risk.

Do I have to be in great shape already to start climbing?

You do not need to be in excellent shape to get started with climbing, but should always consult with your physician before beginning a new exercise program.

Do I need to take an orientation before I can boulder or autobelay?

Yes! The orientations are important to help you learn how to better prevent injuries. Expect a bit of a wait for your orientation: If it’s really busy here with new visitors, there may be a wait but we get to everyone within 15 minutes or so.

Do you sell climbing gear?

We sell some basic climbing gear, particularly the essentials like chalk, tape, chalk bags and shoes. Please see more at this link: Click here for latest gear shop prices.

Tell me about your bouldering safety flooring

All our bouldering flooring is designed by Asana, a leading climbing gym flooring provider in U.S.A. and provides 16 inches of various types of foam underneath a cordura shell. The flooring is designed to be of a firmness that makes it possible to walk on the mats with less strain on your ankles but with increasing absorption for higher velocity falls. We recommend that you never rely on any flooring system to ensure your safety but that you focus on learning proper fall technique, downclimbing whenever you can, learning about your limits and never going beyond your own limits.
