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 climbers' paradise at Climb Edmonton: for $6, you get a one-day climbing pass and all the equipment you need to conquer the y-axis (a $16 total value).
The relatively new Climb Edmonton bristles with more multi-coloured climbing holds than the hull of a barnacle-covered whaling ship. A variety of routes offers challenges for beginners, experts, and all the apprentice rock octopi in between. Test your stretchiness of wall-to-wall transfers, work on your balance over ledges, and eschew the tyranny of the inner ear on one of Climb Edmonton's overhangs. With plenty of skilled staff on duty to answer your questions, you'll be encouraged and inspired to scale the wall with confidence.
Climbing in a rock gym is nothing like grappling the plywood-and-plastic climbing walls at a company picnic or building a batting cage in your backyard. Rock gym walls are covered with state-of-the-art textured products that mimic the conditions of real rocks (indentions, protrusions, overhangs, underhangs, and cracks included). Veteran climbers say rock climbing is sort of like training and running a marathon, but you get the adrenaline rush in shorter, more intensely concentrated spurts. Indoor climbing is a great way for someone to get started or a perfect after-work and climb-during-inclement-weather alternative for experienced climbers who want continuous practice.
- They had all different set ups for different skill levels so even if you are a beginner they can accommodate you. Very friendly staff and overall a great experience. – patrick, Google Maps
- The set up of the place is such that you can cross over the gaps between the different climbing columns and so creates unique route potential – Jeffrey, Google Maps
