RocVentures has been Rochester's favorite climbing gym since 1995. Now under new ownership, we have taken pride in doing everything we can to make RocVentures an inviting and enthusiastic atmosphere for those new to climbing and those who are seasoned veterans.  Our new management team has recently taken ownership of RocVentures and have been busy making many renovations and changes to our operations.  We look forward to seeing you!

The RocVentures Team

Kristen Tedrow - Owner

As an owner of ROCVentures, I love seeing people excited to climb.  The enthusiasm of our members and guests makes my job enjoyable.  The sense of community and comradery in the climbing community makes me glad to be part of it.  If you see me at the gym, please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your visit more enjoyable for you. 


Craig Tedrow - Owner

Owning and operating RocVentures alongside my wife Kristen is truly a blessing.  Kristen and I are grateful for the wonderful staff, members, and guests that we have in our gym.  We strive to create a community and atmosphere that is welcoming, challenging, and rewarding for everyone that comes.  


Jon Schnaufer - General Manager

Working as General Manager of RocVentures Climbing Gym has been an incredibly rewarding position since I started in December of 2017, after being hired as Director of Operations earlier that year. My focus as Director was to update the gym space and provide the best training facility to our growing community of climbers.

I enjoy every single moment I get to spend with the awesome staff, members and guests that come to RocVentures Climbing Gym. As a climber for 7 years, my goal is to have both new guests and seasoned climbers get the same enjoyable and rewarding experience I get while climbing to this day.
