Climbing indoors is nothing like traversing a vertical sea of mutated jungle-gym obstacles. Cleveland Rock Gym’s walls are covered with textured surfaces and challenging formations that will provide you with a calf-toning workout, so make sure to bring every baby whale you can find. More importantly, you’ll be in a safe environment where you can safely practice moves that will put public menace Spider-Man to shame. The introduction to climbing class will introduce you to the basics of wall ascension, so you’ll be climbing through indentions, protrusions, overhangs, underhangs, and cracks in no time.
