If the Indiana Jones films have taught us anything, it is that in order to have a successful teaching career, one must train one's upper body to be adept at dangling. Hone your Hollywood-learned skills with today’s Groupon to Dyno-Rock in Arlington. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get a day of climbing for two including chalk and gear rental (up to a $32 value).
- For $25, you get three CrossFit body-weight sessions (up to a $75 value).
At Dyno-Rock, more than 16,000 square feet of indoor climbing space awaits crag clingers of all ages, punctuated by 25-foot-high walls plastered with multicolored handholds and footholds. Pairs of cliff clutchers find a wall to call their own among Dyno-Rock’s gentle slopes, imposing overhangs, and ceiling segments designed to teach toes to pinch in all the right places, and all first-time climbers are treated to a safety class before being loosed into the wild wall wilderness. For those who prefer a more natural climbing experience, the gym boasts a dedicated bouldering section with more than 2,000 square feet of climbing at less-high heights.
Athletes who prefer lone toning sessions can whittle more fetching frames with CrossFit, a functional fitness program comprised of varying, high-intensity movements. Designed by a team of climbers, firefighters, and military personnel looking for a more challenging, dynamic way to get in shape, the constantly changing workouts incorporate everything from jumping, throwing, and lifting to squatting, running, and high-impact charades.
Dyno-Rock Indoor Climbing Center
Climbers negotiate a web of routes that snake up walls that stretch as far as 25 feet toward the roof inside Dyno-Rock Indoor Climbing Center’s cavernous, air-conditioned space. The center sprawls to 16,000 square feet in all, including 2,000 square feet dedicated exclusively to bouldering. Climbers of all stripes will find challenges suited to their skill level, from straightforward routes with large handholds for beginners to inverted ceiling climbs for advanced spider people. The center’s staff also regularly scrambles the routes and handholds to keep climbers on their toes. All first-time visitors must take a quick course that helps them climb confidently, understand gym rules, and ensure a safe experience for everyone in the gym.
