What You'll Get
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 deal: for $40, you get a one-month membership (a $65 value), one month of gear rental (a $5 value) and one On the Rocks intro class (a $30 value) at Adventure Rock Climbing Gym in Pewaukee, about 30 minutes from Milwaukee (a combined value of $100).
At Adventure Rock Climbing Gym, climbers of all skill levels are welcome to climb to new altitudinal and adrenal levels. Adventure Rock boasts more than 12,000 square feet of textured, crack-riddled climbing space lined with more than 40 top ropes swaying from heights as high as 35 feet. Before tackling the man-made terra, bold boulder challengers undergo the gym's On the Rocks intro class, which introduces proper knot-tying, belaying, rope-handling, and climbing techniques. Once the basics are set, students can scale up to On the Rocks 2 for free and hone intermediate methods such as route reading and rating, bouldering, and never looking down without a stoic, pupil-piercing glare of confidence.
Call to reserve a spot in the two-hour On the Rocks intro class, held at 6 p.m. Tuesday or Thursday or at noon Saturday. In the interest of safety and keeping toddlers off of pointy peaks, classes are open to students 14 years or older only.
Must sign waiver to participate; if under 18, a parent or legal guardian must sign.
Though Adventure Rock Climbing Gym hasn't been reviewed much, On Milwaukee listed it as one of a hundred fun things to do with kids in Milwaukee.

About Adventure Rock Climbing Gym
In the 17 years since its opening, Adventure Rock Climbing Gym has upheld its objective of granting guests of all ages and experience levels a chance to learn how to climb. The staff meticulously maintains amenities including 12,000 square feet of textured climbing surfaces and bouldering caves. Sculpted arêtes and cracks challenge forearms as intrepid wall-climbers chart a course up colored pathways to seek council with the sentient ductwork at the faux mountain's 35-foot peak. Under the helm of experienced instructors, students learn the ins and outs of ascension via climbing classes. As climbers scramble upward on more than 40 top ropes, air-conditioning keeps faux mountainsides from awkwardly perspiring geode sweat drops. While the indoor facility offers a controlled environment in which to learn and practice, Adventure Rock’s staff also unleashes patrons’ inner adventurers via private outdoor climbing classes held at Devil’s Lake as well as portable rock wall rentals for all manner of party or event.
