History of the Boiler Room
The Boiler Room, as the name suggests, once housed the heating plant for a Woolen Mill located on the west bank of the Cataraqui river. With the mill long gone, the building has become home to many local businesses, including the Boiler Room Climbing Gym. Some of the historical flavor of the Boiler Room has been preserved not only in the name of the gym, but in its construction as well.
The Boiler Room also provides a range of supplementary services and facilities. Change rooms, shower, lockers, equipment sales/rentals, and beverage/snack sales are all provided. Beginner and advanced lessons are available with a reservation and courses are offered periodically.
