What You'll Get
Some people are born to run, and some are born to scramble up and down walls and ceilings like a Tokay gecko. Unleash your inner lizard with today's Groupon to a climbers' paradise: for $7, you get a one-day climbing pass and a harness rental (up to a $15 value) at City Beach Rock Club in Fremont. Not all climbing routes will be available to new or first-time climbers for safety reasons. Attending a training class ($20) can prepare climbers for certification tests. Check the safety policies for more information.
With more than 16,000 square feet of climbing space, the vertical faces at City Beach Rock Club make climbers look like ants in regards to their comparative appearance and propensity to stick to walls. Routes are built with the latest climbing holds and are rerouted about every eight weeks for variety, giving the club's climbs height-defying on par with traversing a building's exterior using toilet plungers, dedication, and cartoon physics.
A free-standing boulder frees climbers of their harnesses for rope-less ascension, and the 45-foot lead cave is free of bears or cave-dwelling cannibals. The indoor mountain-replication space also includes three crack systems that challenge climbers to scurry up the fine lines of mountain faces rather than use the multicolored climbing nubs found along most naturally occurring climbable features. For overcoming the crux moments in difficult climbs, isolate the muscles in the fingers, forearms, and upper body on the campus system training wall.
