great atmosphere provided by the staff
By A Yahoo! Contributor, 4/1/11
Higher Ground is a great place to climb, it has great bouldering and alright toproping/lead-climbing. Owner is great and the staff is also very good and enthusiastic about climbing. always a good time.
Loved the bouldering rooms. Lots of neat features and a good long traverse. Mostly a bouldering gym but has features such as an ice wall, a wall for dry tooling and a dyno wall. Some lead routes, too.
Great atmosphere. Regulars are very nice and welcoming.
Will definitely come again when I am in town.
While hiking on Isle Royale, I injured my plantars tendon in my foot. Frank made me custom footbeds for my hiking boots that not only fixed my feet but also eleviated some knee problems I was having! I haven't tried out the climbing wall yet but I have my eyes on the ice climbing wall. It looks awesome!
I learned to climb at Higher Ground. Their staff is friendly and helpful. They work hard to build a rapport with their customers regardless of age. They have very fair prices and top quality gear. Downtown Grand Rapids' best kept secret! I've been to other gyms; there simply is no comparison.
Fun place. Friendly and helpful staff. Less expensive than other gyms in GR. They keep the place clean and picked up. No "climbers attitude" prevalent in the industry. New service of custom boot and shoe fitting and alteration. Mostly a top roping and bouldering place.
Plywood texture paint gym. Twenty foot high climbing walls, two bouldering rooms, one top-rope room. Climbers are cool people there. The owner is pretentious. Lead climbing is kind of a joke there. no dry tooling. Good at getting new holds every now and then. Staff friendly(exception of owner)
