Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Toronto Climbing Academy (Toronto)

Family Tested
High energy

There you go!

Most parents stayed to watch for the whole 2-hour program. They would cheer each climber's success in unison (which might be too much if your child is particularly shy!). The young supervisor coached each child, one at a time, during their climb, with step-by-step instructions punctuated by plenty of Awesome! or There you go! encouragements. I read 5.4 at the bottom of the first wall my son tried. I was told 5 means vertical and 4, the degree of difficulty. (Some impossible walls rate 5.14!) The next wall they tried was 55 feet tall. The following climb involves a corner wall. Was it fun? I later asked my little monkey when he came down. Yes! Does it hurt anywhere? I inquired. Everywhere! was his reply. Go figure. Note that I visited the Academy on its previous location. We've not tried the current one.
