  • First Ascent Mountain School
    John McDonough has spent his life rising to meet outdoor challenges. Years ago he began traveling the globe as a skier and rock climber, finding adventure and challenges on faraway mountains and snowy cliffs. After more than two decades on skis and 15 years scaling rocks, the AMGA Certified Single-Pitch Instructor??who once accompanied an inspiring group of blind climbers on a trip??now operates First Ascent Mountain School. The gig comes with the daily pleasure of watching beginners submit to the powerful sense of awe and accomplishment that comes with mountaineering. As First Ascent's founding director, John has assembled a small band of professional mountain guides who shared his zeal for nature and teaching. The crew touts a penchant for making the sometimes-intimidating activities of rock-terrain climbing and snowshoeing accessible to anyone who is interested.

  • Spartan Race
    Extreme athletes banded together to design Spartan Races' intense courses orchestrated over standardized distances, each strewn with natural and man-made obstacles to test mind-body fitness, resilience, stamina, and strength, designed to leave participants exhausted and exhilarated. In waves of 200, runners collect smudges and stains as they perform box jumps, haul heavy sandbags, and juke feral linebackers. Depending on where in the world they're participating, the course may be as short as 3 miles or, for extremely practiced athletes, as long as a full marathon.

  • CityROCK Climbing Centers
    Voted Best Climbing Wall by the Gazette in 2010, CityROCK's walls and staff are tall in both experience and, depending on the instructor, height. Rock wranglers can ascend a variety of towering structures laden with cracks, overhangs, boulders, hungry baby eagles, and more. Because traditional rope climbing is a two-person team endeavor, all first-timers and returning rock-jocks must undergo a course in belaying basics. The quick class enables climbers to master the techniques while building confidence in themselves and their partners.
