MPHC Climbing gym started in 1992, since then we’ve been striving to build a Community where everyone feels safe and comfortable to grow physically and mentally stronger! In our climbing gym, whether new or experienced we hope to introduce climbers to seeing climbing in a different view. We want our climbers to have fun and inspire one another. We provide our members and guests with free clinics each day of the week; these clinics give our members a chance to meet others also working on similar projects and rise together! Our location is conveniently located near Times Square, and changing our routes weekly with around 5,000 square feet to play in, we keep things fresh and challenging for climbers of all ages and abilities.

Here Community Matters!

The purpose of these classes is to get children to approach climbing as a sport, and to create a supportive and respectful community of youth climbers. There will be an emphasis on body awareness, cognitive awareness, and general knowledge of climbing terms and techniques. The hope is that the children will learn to be patient, supportive, and disciplined as climbers. Progress will not be defined by the difficulty of the routes completed, but the level of self-awareness and determination each child develops. It’s all about the effort and attitude.

Many of you have expressed interest in learning to lead climb, so we are starting a series which will go from the intro level to advanced technique classes.

Intro to Lead Climbing covers lead belaying, clipping, and climbing techniques.

Intermediate Lead Climbing is designed to take lead climbers to the next level of skill and comfort. Taking big falls can be scary, and clipping and projecting hard leads requires belayers and climbers to use excellent communication. We will give you techniques to start sending hard routes!

Advanced Lead Climbing will give you the skills to take your indoor lead climbing skills outdoors! Covering hanging quick draws, sport anchors, and other outdoor leading techniques, we’ll go over everything you need to start redpointing outside.

If you haven’t led in years, this will be a great refresher, and if you’ve always wanted to lead, now is your chance.

Must be Top Rope Certified to participate.
