Rock climbing is so fun that On the Edge Rock Climbing Gym actually has a warning about it on its site. A page for newbies notes that after a first session, "Your face may hurt from smiling so much." Rock climbing also works muscles that are usually ignored in daily activities, so it might leave you a little sore. It's all worth it, though?especially in such a well-appointed, welcoming gym.
Spaciousness: The gym is large where it counts most?vertically. Its high ceilings, combined with new top-rope and lead climbing walls, make for a more than 10,000-square-foot climbing area.
Beginner-Friendly Climbing Classes: There are plenty of classes to choose from, including a basic movement and technique class covering foot placement, hand holds, and how to rest without carrying your bed up the climbing wall.
Festive Friday Nights: The gym stays open until 11 p.m. on Fridays for a ropes-challenge course, wherein visitors can test their strength and balance.
High-tech Tours: The gym's website offers 360-degree virtual tours, on which cyber visitors can browse the gear shop in the lobby and gaze up at the towering walls.
