The Hive is one of B.C.’s most popular bouldering gyms with three locations in the Vancouver area and they’re now heading east to Winnipeg. The Hive Winnipeg is another example of climbers going from standalone facilities to chains.
The exact date of when the gym will open is up in the air, as covid closures have forced all gyms in Canada to close until further notice. But, when the new The Hive location opens, it wills surely introduce many Winnipeg people to the sport of climbing for the first time.

Kate Bell from The Hive has told us: “We also have a fifth gym slated to open in the next year in Port Coquitlam. All of our three existing Vancouver gyms will be opening with a phased approach starting June 1 and many B.C. gyms are doing something similar.”

Our climbing walls are going to be built by the team at Onsite. OnSite was founded in Montreal by Françis Larose and Pascal Godin at the end of 2016. It has since grown into a multi-disciplinary team of passionate climbers, ready to share their passion and bring their flavour to the industry. They have completed 23 climbing installations so far, including 3 awesome urban boulders made out of 110 tons of real granite. Look them up online for climbing walls, flooring, volumes, mobile walls, granite urban boulders and custom projects. #Winnipeg #wpgclimbers #winnipeglocal #climbing
