Texas Rock Gym beckons climbers to more than 14,000 square feet of scalable surfaces, which helped it win the title of 2010's Best Indoor Rock Gym on the CityVoter Houston A-List. Climbers begin their day with an orientation, familiarizing themselves with the gym's layout, equipment, and perches defended by distrustful mother birds. After wall-crawlers don a sturdy harness and climbing shoes, they can spend a full day clambering up walls dotted with colorful footholds from more than 40 top-rope stations, practicing lead climbing on a towering arch, or slipping free of ropes to hop through a bouldering cave. A sports drink infuses every reach and scramble with fresh energy, and chalk dries hands for an easier grip and allows climbers to scrawl secret messages to the ceiling.
Though Texas Rock Gym sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Texas Rock Gym
Inside Texas Rock Gym, over 14,000 square feet of climbable surface wait to be gripped and clambered over by novice and expert climbers, who navigate routes that are regularly altered to keep things fresh. The gym’s mandatory orientation ensures that each visitor observes proper safety measures during their climb. Following orientation, climbers can strap themselves to a harness at one of more than 40 rope stations and begin top-rope climbing up lofty heights, while more advanced climbers lead trips up over complex courses or the stone faces of former presidents. Climbers can also skip the harnesses altogether and try their hand at bouldering across height-restricted surfaces, or head to one of the gym’s Tai Chi or Yoga classes.
The gym is spacious with several walls available to climb ranging in different levels of difficulty; some are much harder than they look.Eren M., Yelp, 4/12/11
