Scamper up walls like a man with incredibly long legs and rubber-cement hands. With today's deal, you’ll get a one-day pass with gear rental to AZ on the Rocks for $9 (a $21 value). The pass entitles you to all the gear (harness, shoes, chalk bag, lead ropes, carabiner, and belay device) you need to scale rocks, ascend rocks, and feel morally and physically superior to rocks. AZ on the Rocks was AZCentral.com's Readers' Choice for Best Family Weekend Adventure, and Phoenix New Times named it Best DIY Rock Gym.
Though there is some debate as to whether a scotch on the rocks is enhanced or diluted by the gently melting ice, there is no debating that AZ on the Rocks is not made of frozen water and will not disappear when held beneath the tongue. Arizona’s largest indoor rock-climbing gym, the impressive facility features 14,000 square feet of climbable terrain, 50 top ropes, more than 2,800 square feet of bouldering, and an expert staff of hilltoppers who'll happily address all your questions, point you in the direction of the bathroom, and offer climbing tips. In addition to state-of-the-art facilities and friendly service, AZ on the Rocks will soon let birthday celebrants climb for free on the anniversary of their womb exodus.
Rock-climbing exercises your body and your wits. Each climb challenges you to decide the best route to the summit while clinging to tiny faux-rock outcroppings using muscles and your brain (the sexiest muscle). Round up a group of friends and compete in what many call "chess, but with more physical exertion and not on a chessboard."
AZ on the Rocks won Best Family Weekend Adventure in the AZCentral.com's Readers' Choice awards in 2009 and Best DIY Rock Gym by the Phoenix New Times in 2007, and was featured in the Arizona Republic:
- It's almost like free-soloing, which is climber-speak for scaling vertical cliffs without a rope for protection, except that nagging risk of imminent death is eliminated. – Phoenix New Times
- The climbing gyms, originally created for rock climbers to practice, aren't just for that anymore. Outdoor climbers make up less than half of the indoor rock-climbing population. You're more likely to find families - it's like going to the movies or a skate night - and corporations who are using the indoor climbing as an exercise in bringing employees together to develop team work. – Angela Cara Pancrazio, Arizona Republic
