Mankind's feeble climbing skills and inability to digest delicious tin cans are two ways in which evolution left humans inferior to goats. Channel an inner mountain goat with today's Groupon: for $8, you get an all-day indoor rock-climbing pass and gear and shoe rental at Climb at Blue Ridge in Taylors (a $17 value). Check out Climb at Blue Ridge's hours of operation.
The indoor, air-conditioned terrain of Climb at Blue Ridge extends its 18 rope-climbing stations and 30-foot vertical walls toward the grips, palms, and soles of ascending adventurers. Before kissing the indoor clouds, suit up with all the climbing essentials, including gear, shoes, and a finger to wag at the ground that doubted you. Spend the day strengthening your arms, challenging your legs, and defying terra firma as you traverse the numerous mountain-like surfaces. Entire sections of the facility devote themselves to beginners learning the fundamentals of climbing, as well as areas with bold boulders for ascension masters and plenty of middle-of-the-road sections for out-of-breath lizards spoiled by lush domestic terrariums.
Climb at Blue Ridge
Unlike most places, at Climb at Blue Ridge, monkey-like maneuvers indicate superhuman skill. Colorful footholds and handholds speckle the climbing gym’s towering walls and the ceiling of a boxy alcove, with some jutting out at treacherous angles. Equipped with safety gear, climbers surmount the faux cliffs at their leisure, unlike someone trying to escape a vengeful mountain goat. Alternatively, they can join the climbing team to hone their scaling skills in both the gym and the wild.
