Nipping at the heels of rock sitting and rock watching, rock climbing has grown to become the third most popular Rocklympics event. Join the craze with today’s Groupon to RockQuest Climbing Center, located near I-275 in Sharonville. For $17, you’ll get a full week of climbing, equipment rentals, and an hour-long introductory class ($35 value).
Climbing rock walls is difficult yet rewarding, but unlike the corporate ladder, sucking up won’t get you anywhere. Instead, hone your high-altitude skills on RockQuest’s walls, which feature approximately 20,000 square feet of climbing surface, vertical heights up to 45 feet, and about 60 top ropes. Roofs, overhangs, cracks, flakes, and robotic mountain goats mimic natural conditions and provide a varied climbing environment that will ensure a full-body workout. RockQuest also offers locker rooms, showers, classrooms, and a stocked pro shop that will help take your climbing to new heights. Veteran climbers say rock climbing is similar to running a marathon, but you get the adrenaline rush in shorter, more intensely concentrated spurts, just like axe-hunting. In your introductory climbing lesson, you'll learn all the basics you need to scale safely and enough knot-tying skills to impress an easily impressed sailor.
Learning to rock climb is a fantastic workout, but it can also save your life in the event of a flash flood or a zombie horde. RockQuest’s friendly and knowledgeable staff will make sure clients 13 and over leave with more than just sly metaphorical comparisons. Even if you already know how to climb, this deal lets you be the class know-it-all before enjoying a full week of sweet climbs.
You must fill out a waiver before climbing.
