Good Facility But...
Apr 2019 • Family
Got the family starter package for my son and I. Good at first but it became obvious over time that there is a strong clique here. Newbies are singled out and bullied by regulars and staff. Regulars can do no wrong, outsiders are called out on any minor infraction, friends of staff act like they have the place to themselves. I have been yelled at several times for no real reason while the 'in crowd' is happily climbing above, below and across others' routes with no recourse.

Try it out for yourself but don't overstay your welcome.

Excellent place for Excercise and Relaxation
Oct 2018 • Friends
Arc has been open for approx. three years now and has really established itself as a premier place of exercise, relaxation, and overall good times. Whether you are a newbie or experienced climber, the staff are well-trained and attentive, along with the routes being easy enough for beginners, while challenging for experts. The yoga is some of the best in Sudbury, along with very good instructors.

Caution Newbies!
Mar 2018 • Family
There is no suggested or safety instruction/precautions/standards (even in a handout) unless you book a staff member in advance @$30/hour, and we were not told this on phone when we called in advance, advising that we were unfamiliar with rock-climbing.
There is, however, a waiver one must sign to use the facilities. This business clearly cares more about being sued than preventing accidents, or improving new customers' experience.
The facilities looked great, but I really felt I wasted my money, and my family did not get the enjoyment they could have.

An afternoon of fun and exercise
Jan 2018 • Friends
What a great way to spend an afternoon between friends ! We sure had a blast and the workers there were great helping us out and explaining. There are 3 spots with an automated self attach harnest if you don't have the course, which we didn't have. Loads of fun :)

Fun day time activity
Aug 2017 • Friends
Arc is a great way to get in an intense workout, without all the intensity of the gym. I went here for the first time with friends and was impressed about the atmosphere of the facility, and how friendly and helpful the staff were. I would definitely go again.

A great way to work out without knowing it. You can come and go all day long with a day pass. Great way to exercise.

Great community

Climbing Arc is a great way to push yourself and grow. Staff are super helpful and friendly. Rental gear is available if you don't have your own. A great spot for beta about local outdoor climbing.

Great Exercise and Friendly Staff
Mar 2017 • Solo
Great rock climbing, they change the walls often and have excellent sanitary precautions. I would definitely go again and invest in a month pass. They also have auto belays if you are on your own or go with kids.

Exercising without knowing it

Great way to spend the day. Staff was friendly, helpful and informative. Would recommend going. Prices are reasonable with the option of leaving and coming back all day.

Excellent workout and great place
Jul 2015 • Business
I went for the first time with a few co workers as we all were from out of town staying in the hotels across the street.

It was a better way to spend a few hours over hanging out in the hotel gym or a local watering hole

Reception was great as was the smooth check in process which we did a head of time online was also very easy

Lots of options for climbing and as it was our first experience with climbing the auto bleary systems were great to start with

Had a fun time and will return on my next visit to Sudbury my one co worker already has
