  • Rockzilla
    Underneath the sky-blue rafters of Rockzilla's spacious indoor gym, a veritable mountain range of multicolored walls challenges climbers of all experience levels. Sheer-faced cliffs challenge the top-roping and lead-climbing techniques of both beginners and experts, and a mushroom-shaped structure builds skills in bouldering and reveals the fossil record of ancient screws and bolts. The mat-lined floor, harnesses, and dedication to belaying skills ensure every visitor's comfort and safety. In addition to hosting hangouts, parties, and team-building exercises onsite, Rockzilla crashes entire tectonic plates into customers' backyards, forming portable climbing walls available for rent.

During his introductory stand-up paddleboard lessons, Jeff calls upon more than 30 years of experience to teach students the art of gliding atop water. Once they get a firm grasp on the basics, guests can embark on two-hour guided tours down the river, where they can spot redwood trees, turtles, fish, and different species of birds. When combined with the beautiful scenery, stand-up paddleboard yoga lessons help visitors relax and balance their mind and bodies.
