Rök Haus poses challenges for all levels of climber via wall surfaces that span from introductory routes to treacherous inversions, which summon strength and smarts from even the most accomplished scrambler. The friendly staff keeps a lookout for safety while competitive climbers try to navigate the central climbing boulder’s circuitous network of pathways, ensuring that the climbers do not seek guidance by bribing a local troll with Tootsie Rolls. Between ascents, climbers can take a break from the rigorous physical and mental exertion on one of the couches in the relaxation area adjacent to the climbing walls.
In the Krewe of Kringle pub crawl, revelers dressed as Santas, elves, reindeer, and a multitude of other holiday figures set out to conquer numerous area bars. Participants get free Abita beer at each location, and can take advantage of drink and shot specials.
