Welcome to the BRG

As the oldest rock gym on the East Coast, and the second oldest in America, the Boston Rock Gym has been at the heart of the local climbing community since the very beginning. Over the years, we have trained generations of climbers on our walls. I should know; I was one of them!

Although a lot has changed since we first opened our doors in 1989, the Boston Rock Gym's commitment to offering a unique climbing experience has not. Today people of all ages and all climbing abilities come to the BRG to test their skills on our walls. With routes ranging from 5.4 to 5.13 plus in difficulty, a dedicated bouldering room, and a one-of-a-kind lead roof, we offer something for everyone. 

But it's not the facility that makes the Boston Rock Gym special. It's the close-knit community of fellow climbers. From our friendly and supportive members to our dedicated staff of AMGA-certified instructors, the BRG is family. If you're looking for a place to call home, the Boston Rock Gym is it.
