Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes we do. We have gift card on which you can put the amount of your choice to give to your love ones. Let our staff help you best select your gift options!
Do I need a partner?
If you are climbing routes (height climbing requiring ropes), you will need a partner, but we also have a few autobelays that can be of use on days where you partner can't show up! Bouldering does not require you to have a partner.
How can I find a partner?
There are many ways to meet a climbing partner:
- Come boulder and meet other climbers, or come use our auto-belays. You can meet actual climbers right here in the gym!
- Ask around at work or other activities. You might be surprised at who has always wanted to try climbing.
- At Allez Up, we have a list of members looking for partners. You can either add your name to the list or take down a number and call.
- You can also go to the Find a Partner page, there are many social media groups and sites which organize climbing and partner seeking at Allez Up.
I've never climbed. Can I just drop in? (I'm not accredited, can I climb?)
You can come in and boulder during business hours! For routes, you will need assistance from one of our experienced staff during our walk-in sessions. For more information on these sessions, visit the try climbing page. Following this activity, you can sign the Learn to Belay Course in order to become autonomous.
I've climbed a few times. Do I need to do a course?
In order to become autonomous in climbing, you must take an Learn to Belay Course. A reservation is required for this course. Please call 514-989-9656.
Do I need to pass a test?
Every autonomous climber at Allez Up (including those who have taken a course with us), must pass an accreditation with one of our instructors. This is a short but thorough evaluation of a climber’s knowledge of belaying and knot tying.
Can I bring a friend?
Experienced belayers of legal age (18 years of age or older) are permitted to bring a maximum of 2 friends per visit.
Guests climb for the same price as our accredited members.
Members are not permitted to teach knot-tying, belaying or any other safety techniques to their guests. Only Allez Up instructors are permitted to teach in the gym.
Members aged 17 and under cannot bring unaccredited guests to climb. They can only climb with other accredited members.
I just want to boulder. Do I have to pass an accreditation
Nope! You simply need to fill in a waiver.
Do you have kids' program?
Allez Up offers a recreational and a competitive Junior program
What do I have to do to become a member?
A member is a person who has successfully passed the accreditation at Allez Up. For more information on accreditations, visit this page. And if you want climbing to be a part of your life, you can buy a term pass.
I climb (or am accredited) in another gym, does that mean I can climb here too?
Allez Up is committed to maintaining a safe climbing environment. Every climber who wants to belay at Allez Up must pass an accreditation, regardless of their status in other gyms.
Do I need special gear to climb?
For route climbing, you will need a harness, climbing shoes, a belay device and a chalk bag. You can purchase your own (Allez Up now sells starter kits) or you can rent equipment at Allez Up.
Do you do birthday parties?
ALLEZ UP is reorganising its lobby to better serve our customers. Unfortunately we will not be able to provide an eating area for birthday parties anymore. You are welcome to bring small groups to climb during our walk-in sessions!
Do I have to sign a waiver?
A waiver must be signed for EACH climber. Our waiver can be downloaded from our website.
Is there parking available in your area?
On-street parking is available around the gym.
