Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes we do! We have gift cards 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 or purchase a gift certificate online.
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 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.
- You can also go to the "Communauté Allez Up" page on Facebook. 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 Intro to Climbing page. Following this activity, you can sign up to the Climbing 101 course in order to become an autonomous climber. If you are only interested in bouldering, you can sign up for our Bouldering 101 course, which includes an unlimited week and shoe rental during that time.
I've climbed a few times. Do I need to do a course?
In order to become an autonomous climber, you must take the Climbing 101 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 over 18 years of age are permitted to bring a maximum of 2 non-climbers per visit. Newly accredited members must visit Allez Up 10 times before being permitted to bring a guest.
Keep in mind that any climber under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by his/her parents.
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?
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 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. Different rates may apply for the accreditation test if you have proof of accreditation at another gym.
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 sells starter kits) or you can rent equipment at Allez Up.
I want to learn how to lead climb. What grade do I need to climb?
To sign up for our lead climbing course, you must be able to climb a 5.10 at the gym without difficulty.
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. You can fill out a waiver online.
Is there parking available in your area?
On-street parking is available around the gym.
