An excellent and very friendly little climbing gym. It specializes in bouldering, and has a good primary route setter.

Great place to go and boulder any time they're open. I started back into climbing after being out of it for several years and was delighted to find Climb North near where I was living in Pittsburgh. Yes, their routes are usually harder than marked, and yes, there is more bouldering than top-roping. All-in-all, the staff are friendly, offering advice or feedback as requested, but not getting in your way. The classes are helpful, and the place is friendly enough to bring your friends to climb, even if they aren't experienced climbers! Part of me really wants to publicize this gym and get their attendance up, and part of me wants to keep it just like it is. They're good people and know their craft. Check 'em out, you'll have a great time!

In my opinion, one of the most important factors of a good climbing gym is the staff. The staff here are excellent, extremely friendly, always ready to offer a belay, and give tips or beta if you need it (Most of the staff is very experienced in outdoor climbing. Justin, the manager, has climbed a "coopers" V9 and 14a.) The routes themselves, although oriented towards younger climbers since they make up a majority of the classes at this gym, are usually on the longer side set up for training. For every 2 longer problems, there is 1 quality boulder problem that is the standard 11-15 moves. Difficulties range from V0 all the way to V7 (at the moment.) Take these grades with a grain of salt! When I first started climbing here as a V4 climber, I was getting kicked off of some of the sand bagged V2's! (A running joke in the gym is if we cannot figure out the grade, its given "V2+") A testament to this is, recently, a problem was given a V2 that was crossed out to a V4 that was yet again crossed out to a V5. The gym is also being expanded upon! More higball bouldering is appearing in the back of the gym.

I have climbed for a very long time, but never indoors. This place is great! Lots of challenging boulder problems and very similar to problems outdoors. This is my new rainy day/winter training spot.

Although Climb North is smaller than most newer gyms, it has stood the test of time. It has been there since 1993 the staff told me! The wall is great for bouldering the although the top rope section is smaller than some, it offers great routes for all levels of climbers. The staff was very friendly and had a lot of kids there when I came who looked like they were having a blast. I would suggest this gym to anyone looking to climb in the Pittsburgh area.

This place actually CHARGES for climbing? Seriously? Should be free. Most climbs are very short and low to the ground. Staff -- assuming you actually get to talk with them, when they are not in the climbing area -- are not very friendly and know little about how to become a stronger climber. By accident I left my Patagonia baselayer shirt here. Called a few days later to inquire about it. 'No, we've not seen it...' If you are seriously desperate for a climbing surface, then visit here, but otherwise, avoid.
