The Hive Heights

We acknowledge that The Hive, where we work and climb, operates on the traditional and ancestral unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We recognize and respect them as nations in this territory, as well as their historic connection to the lands and waters around us. 
Climbers and Indigenous peoples share a sacred connection to the land. The Hive is committed to engaging in meaningful partnership with indigenous communities in the spirit of reconciliation and the creation of an inclusive climbing community.

The Hive Heights FAQ

Yes. All visitors/guests/members need to book a climbing session; you can do that further down this page, or through the ‘RGPro Connect’ App.

Following Cliffhanger’s change of hands September 2021 Gift Cards were honoured until closing time on Dec 31, 2022.

As of Jan 2, 2023, Cliffhanger gift cards are no longer valid at The Hive Heights.

Grading (indoors or outdoors) is subjective. Routes are graded based on one or a few peoples (experienced) opinions, but can even vary depending their preferred style and strength at the time of rating the climb. We broadened the parameters of the grades (e.g. 5.10+ or 5.10-) because it can feel quite different for each climber! If you feel a route is graded *way* off from it’s actual difficulty as it relates to various other climbs of a similar grade in the gym, we welcome your constructive feedback at the front desk, as our team are always learning and growing, and excited to improve your experience.

Yes you can! You must either pass a belay test or take an intro to climbing course to learn how to handle the added risks of roped climbing, and the basics of belaying.

When you belay a climber, you hold your life in their hands and we take that seriously. Unfortunately, non-staff are not permitted to teach new belayers in our facility.
