Some people are born to run; some are born to scramble up and down walls and ceilings like a Tokay gecko. Unleash your inner lizard with today's Groupon to Climb Iowa, located in Grimes. With more than 10,000 square feet of prime climbing terrain, Climb Iowa provides a challenging environment for rock-scalers of all ages and bouldering abilities. Novice summit scramblers can hang on to every word in the Intro to Climbing class, where they'll learn about safety procedures, proper gear, knotting techniques, and how to pick up a date mid-belay. The class runs about two hours. More seasoned climbers can opt for the day climbing pass, which leaves them free to shimmy about Climb Iowa's cracks, arêtes, laybacks, and hellmouths. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get an intro to climbing class (a $35 value).
  • For $10, you get a day climbing pass ($15) and gear, which includes a harness ($3) and shoes ($4) (a $22 total value)

Climb Iowa

When owner Aaron Stevens says that climbing “builds strength, self-confidence, and trust,” he’s speaking from experience. For much of his life, Aaron suffered from acrophobia, otherwise known as a fear of heights. To deal with his fear, he took an unexpected strategy. He started climbing.

Today, when he walks around Climb Iowa’s 10,000 square feet of top-roping, bouldering, and lead-climbing stations, his proudest moments are when he sees guests “persevere on the climbing wall and achieve a level they never thought they could attain.” An avid outdoorsman, Aaron and his crew oversee simulated climbing terrains that include cracks, overhangs, laybacks, verticals, and slabs. In addition to open sessions, Climb Iowa’s team members lead classes tailored for both beginning and intermediate to advanced climbers. They also offer yoga classes to keep climbers lithe, along with youth summer camps and a recreational and competitive climbing team. Beyond the classes, an extensive stock of gear equips climbers for adventures inside and outside of the gym. Climb Iowa’s construction reflects its team’s love of the outdoors, sporting an eco-friendly design with plentiful natural lighting, geothermal heating and cooling, bicycle racks, and parking spaces for Flintstone cars.
