What’s in it?
Milton Rock Gym is your source for adventure. It doesn't matter whether you are a first time climber or a world renown one, whatever are your intentions — to get strong, train for a trip, celebrate a birthday party, build a corporate team or come in out from the rain, MRG can guide you to a vertical adventure.
As a full service indoor climbing gym, MRG provides different kinds of climbing to challenge your mind and body. We offer:
- Top roping
- Lead climbing on vertical to very steep walls
- Ben Moon wall
- Equipment rentals
- Party and group facilities
All climbers must sign a waiver before climbing. A parent or legal guardian must sign a MRG waiver for climbers under the age of 18. You can download the waiver or pick one up at MRG.
We recommend that you wear loose fitting clothing and rubber soled shoes.
MRG is housed in a former men’s department store built in 1880 in thriving downtown Milton. The north wall was rebuilt in 2005 and the rest of the buildings' structure was reinforced with 13 tons of steel as the climbing gym evolved.
Our top roping area features a 28-foot high slab wall, a cave, and vertical walls with interesting features such as cracks and a shorter beginner wall. The longest 35-foot top ropes rise up to the premiere skylight rooftop for some interesting dimensional effects.
Our lead climbing area can entertain beginners to the elite. All adding up to another 3000 square feet of excitement and endless opportunity to reach your climbing goals.
We have a 2500 square foot bouldering area ranging from slab to extremely steep and features a cave. To top it off, we added a suspended geodesic dome to make it all interesting.
For the elite, we are the only public gym in the U.S. to have a Ben Moon Board. Here you can train on the same problems that some of the most elite climbers are working.
The Gym Crew
Jac and Sharon Frech
We are enthusiastic, novice climbers with a passion for the sport. We've traveled to climbing mecca's such as New River Gorge, WV and across the U.S. to Red Rocks Canyon, NV and our favorite the Shawangunks, NY to name a few just to take outside what we learned at a local climbing gym, Philadelphia Rock Gym. We were quick to learn that the gym also became our "quality time" with our teenage adults, Melissa and Max. The gym atmosphere allowed us to all be competitive and accomplish our own individual goals under one roof. We are excited and thrilled to open our doors at the Milton Rock Gym for all the young at heart interested in learning to climb or for the advanced climber looking for the opportunity to take their skill to the next level.
