Founded in 1994, the first Philadelphia Rock Gym was built by two college friends (Matt & Greg) who had a vision - to bring their passion and enthusiasm for climbing back to their hometown and to make a living doing what they loved. By taking the novel step of bringing climbing inside, they became one of the first indoor climbing centers in the US. Soon, they were one of the best.
Since then, the PRG has introduced more than 40,000 of your friends and neighbors to the amazing sport of rock climbing. And In all that time our passion and enthusiasm for this sport has continued to grow. And, as our passion has grown, so has our dedication to excellence, to safety, and, most of all, to our customers. The PRG has grown, too: we have added a second gym, we offer outdoor training and expeditions all over the US, and we use the philosophy of climbing to promote team development and leadership skills through ground based initiatives and seminars in our Teambuilding program.
It is our vision to continue what Matt & Greg started. To share our passion with you, your friends and your family. To help our customers discover, not just the joy of climbing, but also what its spirit has to offer--confidence, camaraderie, teamwork and balance. Not sure? Just drop by and let us get you on the wall. We bet you won't want to go home!
