First Time

We make climbing accessible!

Our exclusively bouldering and training focused facility has no top rope climbing or auto-belay systems since we focus on a form of climbing that is low to the ground that has large, soft mats to fall onto. Visit our other amazing climbing facilities in Boston, MA or South Boston for a more traditional experience with taller walls and a more accessible options for youth climbers.

Walk-ins are ALWAYS welcome so you can purchase a day pass 7 days a week and climb for the ENTIRE DAY! For unlimited access to all Rock Spot Climbing locations, become a member and join our amazing climbing community. You can always upgrade a day pass to a membership so feel free to give us a try before committing and begin your climbing adventure with us today!

Facility Amenities

Bouldering is a form of climbing that is low to the ground that has large, soft mats to fall onto. Visit our other amazing climbing facilities in Boston, MA or South Boston for a more traditional experience with taller walls and a more accessible options for youth climbers.

This facility features a Rogue Rig for weight lifting along with multiple cardio options, including a treadmill and a rowing erg.

Along with a fixed angle Moon board, our Malden facility is the first facility to feature a full-service, fully adjustable wall angle Decoy board!

While our facility offers high-end climbing shoe rentals, there’s nothing like climbing in shoes that fit your unique foot shape. The best way to find the perfect climbing shoe is to talk to our knowledgable staff and try from a selection of climbing shoes on our walls! Along with shoes, we offer chalk, bags, training gear, performance clothing, and more.

We have cubbies for general storage of personal belongings, along with a limited supply of lockers for daily rental for $3. A monthly rental option is available for Electronic Billing Members for $15 per month, while supplies last.

This facility has a water fountain, which also has a filtered bottle refill feature.

Bathrooms are gender-neutral and the facility is wheel-chair accessible.

There is a selection of refreshments for convenience.

Your first visit

No appointment is necessary to climb with us. Climbers can simply walk in to set up a day pass and shoe rental. If guests have not had an opportunity to fill out a waiver in advance, staff will provide a tablet or a QR code to fill out the waiver in the facility. After setting up a day pass and shoe rental, staff will provide a facility and safety orientation to ensure climbers and guests are aware of our policies so that they can manage their risk while they climb. This is a great opportunity to ask facility questions along with any current specials. Climbers will have full use of the facility for the entire day and may even leave the facility to enjoy the many other food and entertainment offerings in the area. Once finished, climbers return their shoe rental to the front desk. Day passes may be upgraded to membership or punch cards so please remember to ask staff about this before leaving the facility for the day.

Make sure you have a waiver on file with us

Climbing is inherently dangerous and while we will give every new climber a full orientation of our facility along with our safety protocols to help climbers manage their risk, we want to make sure you are comfortable climbing with us. Every person on the climbing floor must have a waiver on file with us. If you have filled out a waiver at another Rock Spot Climbing facility, we will have your waiver on file, but if this is your first time, please fill one out before arriving. All participants under the age of 18 must have a waiver filled out by a parent or legal guardian.

Parking & Alternative transport options

There are plenty of metered parking spots around the facility along with a parking garage next to the facility. The gym is across the street from the Malden Center T stop on the Orange line. Malden Center is also a bus stop. There is both paid and unpaid bike parking at this stop and there is bike rental along the side of the building.

Purchase a day pass

With a full day of climbing, you can enjoy our facility from the time we open until we close at 11PM. Day passes are non-transferable, but may be used across multiple locations on the date of purchase and are active for the entire day so you can leave the facility and return at your leisure. We highly recommend wearing comfortable, athletic clothing during your visit, but climbing shoes are required. You can rent shoes from us or you can purchase a pair from our retail shop. Remember, climbers can always upgrade any day pass to a membership and use.

If climbers have their own climbing shoes, they can save $5 by telling staff and foregoing the cost to rent shoes. Climbing shoes MUST be approved for climbing on our walls and street shoes are not allowed on the climbing mats or on the walls.

Renting shoes

We provide shoe rental for first-time climbers so climbing shoes will not need to be purchased prior to your first visit. That said, there’s nothing like climbing in shoes that fit your unique foot shape. The best way to find the perfect climbing shoe is to talk to our knowledgable staff and try from a selection of climbing shoes on our walls! Along with shoes, we offer chalk, bags, training gear, performance clothing, and more.

No experience necessary

If you have the desire to climb, we will provide the opportunity for you to do so. We have always believed that climbing is for all ages and abilities. As long as you have the physical ability to climb a ladder, we have climbs that will provide an appropriate challenge. If you have a financial barrier, a disability, or require some adaptation to climb, contact us at Questions@RockSpotClimbing.com so that we can learn more and find a way to make climbing accessible for you.

Climb on.
