Overview


IT STARTS HERE

It all started here. With a passion. A passion for the best climbing experience possible.

 

When we first opened in 1990, there were no climbing gyms, so we had to figure it out for ourselves. Invent it all. We did so, with one goal in mind, to bring you the best indoor rock climbing possible. After 25 years, that mindset hasn't left us. 

But a lot has changed since then, rock climbing is no longer an extreme fringe sport that no one has heard of. In fact, climbing on plastic has become very popular around the world, so popular that it has now been accepted  into the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. We are proud to have been there from the beginning, forging the path. But despite all these changes we are still committed to bringing you the best climbing experience possible.

New Climbers

Joe Rockhead’s has introduced more people to the exciting sport of climbing than any other organization in the country. We pride ourselves on our impeccable safety record and our ability to bring it all to you in a fun, low-pressure atmosphere. 

New climbers can safely explore un-roped climbing on our bouldering walls without formal instruction, at their own pace. However, we recommend first-timers reserve a place in a Basic Beginner Lesson to gain roped belay skills and confidence in your technique.

Our beginner lessons are not the quickie 15 minute specials you may find at other gyms for the same price. Rockhead’s comprehensive 3-hour lessons introduce all the safety and technical aspects of indoor rock climbing including top roping and bouldering. With interactive instruction we both show you the skills you need, and explain why it’s done the way it is.

If you’re 13 years old or younger, we recommend organizing a Kids Climb.

Basic beginner lesson $40

Ages 14 plus

Designed to introduce beginners to the sport. During the 3-hour session you will gain the knowledge to tackle any of our top-rope routes with confidence.
Price includes day pass, shoe and harness rental.

 

SUPERSIZED LESSON PACKAGE   ADD $10

Same as the basic beginners lesson, but includes a free two-week membership with rentals AND for a limited time, receive a complementary six-month subscription to Gripped Climbing Magazine courtesy of Joe Rockhead’s.


Reservations required. Call for details. Walk-ins may attend where space is available.
Please call ahead for waiver details!

I KNOW HOW TO BELAY

I AM A CLIMBER

Not only was Rockhead’s Canada’s first indoor climbing gym, it remains the best and most evolved in the country. As leading-edge innovators, our pioneering facility has directly influenced hundreds of climbing gyms who followed our footsteps. Our route setting and safety standards are unparalleled.

Joe Rockhead’s is the only reason I’d ever even consider living in Toronto - it’s the best crag in Ontario.
— Will Gadd

In addition to world-class route-setting, Rockhead's is able to take your climbing performance to a higher level – we offer lead climb training, private technique sessions, and regular seminars with pro climbers at the top of their game. Recent sessions have been led by some of Canada's most promonent climbers like Sean McColl, Ayo Sopeju and Sonnie Trotter.
