Fit Rocks is Moncton’s newest and ONLY bouldering gym, and we were fortunate enough to get a sneak peek before opening day. Some of us set some routes, but mostly we just played around until we were completely tuckered.
Besides bouldering walls and 3 short auto-belay systems, they have peg and campus boards, gymnastic rings and sloper balls. Future plans include a Moonboard, squat rack, and other gym training equipment to cater to a well-rounded training regime.
I’ve been to many climbing gyms in my day, but never have I experienced an Augmented Climbing wall. I’ve been tagged in that Facebook video more times than I can count, but I was not counting on how much fun it would be. You can play all kinds of games with it, not just pong! The neat thing about it was after I thought I was totally finished climbing on the bouldering walls, I ended up spending more time on the Augmented Climbing wall just because it was so fun. They bought it for birthday parties, and I think they were super surprised us adults couldn’t get enough. We set a lot of records.
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Fit Rocks’ grand opening is this Saturday, March 4th. They’re giving out a bunch of door prizes so what can you lose? If you’re in the area, give them a visit! You can find them on facebook, and they’ll be more than happy to answer your questions.
