In the 15 years since its opening, Adventure Rock Climbing Gym 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 ar?tes 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.

In the sunroom, patrons gather for author readings, writing classes, craft workshops, and free WiFi. In between browsing, reading, or writing sessions, patrons can grab complimentary cups of coffee and tea at the coffee bar, which sometimes stocks treats from local bakers.:
