What is Seven Bays?

SEVEN BAYS BOULDERING is a new bouldering gym brought to you by the Richer-de la Plante family who built and now run Allez Up climbing gym in Montreal. The General Manager is local climber, barista and social butterfly Hana Ogasawara!

We are really excited to join the Nova Scotia climbing community!

SEVEN BAYS BOULDERING is a 6000sq. ft. facility on Gottingen st. that hosts a 120 ft long bouldering wall and a licensed café with plenty of comfortable seating.

We believe a bouldering wall is only as good as what you put on it. Seven Bays has fresh boulders every week, a wide selection of holds from around the world, and a ton of volumes to keep the climbing fresh and exciting.  

Bouldering is just as much about the people you meet as it is about the climbing itself. Seven Bays is a hub for climbers to meet and exchange, or just a great place to do homework, “work” work, or just read a book, or better yet a guidebook! We serve great coffee, local draught beer, smoothies and fresh tasty dishes! A perfect place to share a bite and a beer after a good climbing session at the gym, or even better, after a great day of bouldering outside!

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

All (or at least some) of your questions answered here!

What is bouldering?

Bouldering is an exciting and modern sport. What makes it so special? Well, on top of being super social, it's a great workout that offers the climber continuous change. With every wall reset, climbers are put to a brand new test. Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed without the use of ropes or harnesses. You'll need climbing shoes (which you can rent) to help secure footholds and chalk to keep your hands dry.

How do I apply for a job?

Feb 15th: We are currently looking for part time/full time help in the kitchen for a line cook. Please send a resume and cover letter including availabiltiy in an email to info@sevenbaysbouldering.com or click here for more details.

What is the monthly billing option? What makes it so special?

The monthly billing is a monthly pre-authorized payment on a credit card (every 10th of the month, to be exact). The monthly billing is a great way to get a membership that is paid over time WITHOUT commitment and with a ton of flexibility. It can be cancelled at any time, or put on freeze if you won't be climbing for a period of time. Going on a long climbing trip? No problem. Injured and can't climb for a bit? Put your membership on hold. Fees (over and above the monthly fee) associated to this form of billing include: an initial 30$ registration fee and for membership freeze there is an 8$ fee per period of 30 day freeze.

Where can I park my car?

We have a few parking spaces out front but also there is plenty of street parking around.

Can I bring my kids? Do you have a kids climb program?

Seven Bays Bouldering is geared towards a teenage to adult client base. However, children under 14 are always welcome provided they are accompanied and closely supervised by an adult. Seven Bays is a bouldering community and everyone is welcome to learn about and practice bouldering here and be a part of our community. We currently do not have a kids' climbing program, or plans for one. We do not do birthday parties.
