I normally only boulder here when I visit, so take this review with that in mind. I have been a belay slave for the kids, but I can't comment on what they thought of routes. Bouldering areas (there are 2) are on the smaller side,...More

I've been part of True North for close to 4 years and have been fond of the staff and many new climbers. The route setting is top of the line and the youth program is excellent. A must visit if you're an indoor climbing enthusiast.

True North is a really awesome climbing gym. Their top rope routes are awesome, giving a lot of different dynamic options for climbers. Bouldering is good but generally fairly crowded, especially when the youth team is practicing. Would benefit from some expansion. Staff are good,...More

ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
