The road less traveled is often the more fulfilling one, especially when it bypasses Robert Frost's tiger pits. Diverge from a routine route with this Groupon.
$35 for Five Clip’N Go Rock Climbing Sessions ($75 Value)
Developed with climbing beginners of all ages in mind, the Clip’N Go program begins with a 15-minute orientation. Guests then practice their scaling skills on 17 climbing stations. The pass grants climbers a series of five visits over which to hone their prowess and includes a harness rental for each visit. Customers may either use the five-punch card for themselves, or for up to five people.
Adventure Rock Indoor Climbing Gym
In the 15 years since its opening, Adventure Rock has upheld its objective of granting guests of all ages and experience levels a chance to learn how to climb. The staff meticulously maintains amenities including 12,000 square feet of textured climbing surfaces and bouldering caves. Sculpted arêtes and cracks challenge forearms as intrepid wall-climbers chart a course up colored pathways to seek council with the sentient ductwork at the faux mountain's 35-foot peak. Under the helm of experienced instructors, students learn the ins and outs of ascension via climbing classes. As climbers scramble upward on more than 40 top ropes, air-conditioning keeps faux mountainsides from awkwardly perspiring geode sweat drops. While the indoor facility offers a controlled environment in which to learn and practice, Adventure Rock’s staff also unleashes patrons’ inner adventurers via private outdoor climbing classes held at Devil’s Lake as well as portable rock wall rentals for all manner of party or event.
