Mankind's underdeveloped climbing skills and inability to digest tin cans are two ways in which evolution left humans inferior to goats. It's mind over Matterhorn with this Groupon.

$40 for Rock Climbing Class and Two Months of Unlimited Rock Climbing ($425 Total Value)

  • One introductory rock-climbing class (a $45 value)
  • Two-month climbing-gym membership (an $80 value)
  • Daily harness and climbing-shoe rental (a $300 value)

Up to 20 students learn the basics of simple belay climbing with a partner. Instructors begin by coaching them in basic safety and commands and help them clip them into safety harnesses and strap on provided shoes. They then train students on a top-rope system, teaching partners how to coordinate their movements and judge the safety of routes.

Rock City Climbing

Shawn Crawford has been climbing for more than 40 years, working with wilderness search and rescue at age 13 and later serving as a park ranger. Today, he’s the owner and head instructor at Rock City Climbing, where he puts his American Mountaineering and Guiding Association certification to use as he teaches climbers of all experience levels techniques of top-rope climbing, belaying, rappelling, and bouldering.

Inside a gym equipped with more than 10,000 feet of climbing walls, as well as top-rope and bouldering areas, students learn basic and advanced climbing techniques in a range of classes. As they climb, instructors introduce techniques such as hand and foot placement and what to do if gravity starts working in reverse. Visitors can leave the main floor to explore a tunnel maze behind the climbing walls, filled with trap doors, narrow passageways, and drops of up to 11 feet.

When not overseeing his gym, Shawn leads outdoor climbing excursions to challenging locales such as Joshua Tree, Riverside Quarry, and the Statue of Liberty. He also oversees a nearby ropes course, where staffers help groups and individuals navigate two ziplines, as well as more than 20 aerial challenges at heights of up to 60 feet.

Everyone is friendly and encouraging. Can't go wrong in that environment. I finished two routes and can't wait to go back and increase my skills.
