What You'll Get
Whether you want to climb the ladder at work or take up a new career as a window washer, fireman, or Everest explorer, today's Groupon puts your chalky hands and expertly clad feet where your mouthheart is. For $20, you get three indoor rock climbs, complete with climbing harness, shoes, and chalk bag at Climb Time Indy, a $60 value. Indoor rock climbing is a safe and exhilarating way to stay in shape and pop a dose of adventure between trips to the laundromat.
Climb Time Indy's impressive facility is equipped with more than 8,500 square feet of climbing space in a wide range of difficulty levels. The friendly and helpful staff will make sure you understand the ropes and that the facility's equipment is in top shape. Routes are changed weekly, so there's always a new mountainous challenge for you to conquer.
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 with your friend Terry, who thinks "supervising" is helping. 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 for and running a marathon, but you get the adrenaline rush in shorter, more intensely concentrated spurts. Indoor climbing is a great way for newbies to get started, or a perfect climb-during-inclement-weather alternative for experienced climbers who want continuous practice.
The rush of rock climbing is beyond compare. As you climb the rock, you may play out fantasies in your imagination about the rock climbing you in return. As rock climbing enters your life, you may discover that you have trouble carrying out everyday tasks accurately, as you are unable to shift your consciousness away from rock climbing.
Along with your Groupon, print, sign, and bring in Climb Time's release form to redeem it for a three-visit punch card, most likely punched by a jagged outcropping of a cliff face that is surely unscalable. Climbers under 18-years-old must bring a parent or guardian along. Climb Time Indy is open until 10 p.m. every night, so it's easy to fit in your climbing fix.
- Climb time is a great place to go hang out for a while, or an even better place to go to get a regular workout. The routes up the climbing wall vary in difficulty, but there are a huge number of different routes. Even within the same difficulty range, routes can be much harder than others. – Kimberly C., Insider Pages
- Who would have thought you could do rock climbing in the city? Well, these days you can. – Sara S., Google
- When I went to climb time towers in Carmel, the people helped put on my harness, they clearly described the safety rules, and they were very helpful. – ritzie713, TripAdvisor
Your Mind and The Mountain
Ask any experienced mountain climber and they’ll tell you the same thing: the tallest mountain is the one in your mind. Luckily, today’s Groupon keeps you indoors and away from the madness that most climbers succumb to. Here’s a look at what your mental state would be like as you made your way up a real mountain:2000 Feet: The nagging feeling that you’ve left your oven on is misguided. You haven’t.
5000 Feet: Breathing becomes labored; earthly memories fade.
10,000 Feet: Why does it smell like Christmas?
20,000 Feet: Weight of the treasured Elf Stones lifted only by inspiring visions of the Gates of Shamagor.
30,000 Feet: Break for lunch.
