Climbers will meet at the scenic Hammond Pond, located in Newton, MA (just a short T-ride away for all the city dwellers) at 9:00AM where they’ll meet their climbing group and expert outdoor instructor for a one-of-a-kind day outdoors. The group will learn all of the basics of outdoor rock climbing including tying knots, appropriate climbing gear, proper climbing and rappelling techniques before they head out on the rocks and begin to climb. Following the introduction class, the group will enjoy a gourmet picnic-style lunch from the much anticipated second restaurant of Chef Paul Turano, “Cook,” located in Newton, MA. Whether an experienced indoor climber or someone just looking for a fun, this all-inclusive outdoor excursion is only $65 per person and has something for everyone!

Family Memberships

For some, family time means dreaded game nights and long trips stuck in a car. For the BRG it means family fun for all at an affordable price. The BRG is now offering three Family Membership packages perfect for two adults and any child under the age of 16 residing in the same household.

Families can opt for a No Contract Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Membership, which allows them the flexibility of a month-to-month membership without the hassle of contracts and other binding agreements, available for $100/month plus a $55 initiation fee.

For something more long term, families can sign up for a One Year Contract EFT, $80/month, $55 initiation fee or a 1 Year Prepaid Membership $960– a 27% discount over regular pricing.

Sign up for either the No Contract or One Year EFT during the month of June 2013 and the initiation fees will be waived!

Not only does a family membership include unlimited climbing during regular business hours, but it also includes a variety of perks such as discounted rates on camps, classes, guiding and clinics as well as one free guest pass per month. All children under 12 years of age receive free equipment rentals and, the membership provides all family members with discounts on Moosejaw-branded gear at the retailer’s location in Natick Mall as well as 10% off at JRA Cycles in Medford, MA. With summer almost here and vacation right around the corner, there is no better way to enjoy family time than with the Boston Rock Gym.

Rock climbing is a full body workout that will test your strength and endurance, and challenge your mental capabilities, bringing you to thrilling new heights. To get you off the ground, we are offering a fully-loaded New Year membership special that will jump-start the new, and let’s be honest, better you.

OPENING EARLY ON BLACK FRIDAY

We’ll be opening at 10 AM on Black Friday, November 25, 2011. Here are the top five reasons why you should join us…

1. Shake off that sleepy turkey coma. It happens every year: right after you’ve finished your holiday feast, your eyelids start to feel heavy and the next thing you know, you’re dozing on the couch. Snap out of your tryptophane coma with an invigorating day at the BRG.

2. Cross someone off your holiday gift list. BRG gift cards make the perfect present for anyone!

3. Relieve stress. We all love our families, but a full day with the in law’s? No need to say more. Come to the BRG to get out your frustration…

4. Avoid long lines. Why freeze in a long line, out in the cold at the big-box stores? We’ve got plenty of space at the BRG…

5. Make it a family affair! Do you have family visiting from out-of-state? Looking for something exciting to get them out of the house? Bring everyone down for a fun day of climbing!
