Contrary to what one might assume, rock climbing is not the opposite of rock tumbling, though it is still inadvisable to enjoy both activities concurrently. Learn to tumble upward with today's Groupon to Adrenaline Climbing. Choose between the following options:
- For $9, you get a day pass and climbing gear (up to a $19 value).
- For $30, you get a one-month membership (up to a $65 value).
With 12,500 square feet of climbing surface enshrouding walls as high as 25 feet, plus repel stations and hang boards, Adrenaline Climbing provides boulder-bound patrons with a slew of scaling opportunities. Armed with a harness, day-pass guests can take a 10-minute lesson on belaying safety and then leap into the gym to express their inner spirit animal. One-month memberships take commitment and altitude to new heights, with members receiving free climbing shoes and harness equipment and one free phone call to mom following any refrigerator-worthy climbs.
In addition to the traditional indoor terrain, the facility boasts an 11-foot-high treadwall, inversion boots for six-pack seekers, and training circuits designed to improve technique, endurance, and route-reading skills. Adrenaline's team of expert crag conquerors maintain a rigorous route-management plan, changing up the 60 to 70 climbing routes every six to 12 weeks. And, for safety's sake, the staff replaces old bouldering holds with freshly picked ones every two months, thereby ensuring that all dexterous digits can hold on tight.
Though Adrenaline Climbing sometimes features discounted rates online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Though indoor climbing tends to be clear of mountain-goat traffic, climbers at Adrenaline Climbing may come across a different kind of animal: the adrenaline junkie. Owner Nathan provides a haven for these gentle thrill-seekers at his enormous facility, which boasts 12,500 square feet of climbing space. He takes a hands-on approach to climbing instruction, helping students with the equipment and spotting they need to traverse Adrenaline’s walls.
To keep things fresh, the challenging routes and boulder problems—meticulously prepared by a route-management plan and rated according to the Yosemite Decimal System—are periodically recast. Adrenaline Climbing welcomes all climbers, dispensing lessons regardless of skill level, discipline, age, or spirit animal preference. The facility also hosts youth training, climbing classes, and even outdoor guiding trips.
