Though most reviewers comment on the climbing at Edgeworks Climbing, four Yelpers give the gym an average of 4.5 stars:
- I also really love that they have a little standard gym attached to the climbing facility. Even when I am too sore from climbing itself, they have several machines (all very nice and high quality) and also a full weight rack, etc. – Michael K.
- The facility was clean, the staff was awesome, and most importantly, the routes were interesting, challenging, and consistent... – Tom D.
In 2004, a group of skilled climbers and experienced route setters married their expansive knowledge of the sport to create Edgeworks Climbing. The gym is an indoor paradise that expertly match the dynamic challenges that athletes face outdoors, boasting 10,000 square feet of climbing area with 25-foot top-rope routes, 35-foot lead routes, and 3,500 square feet of bouldering. The team of setters draws on years of experience outdoors to create hundreds of challenging, satisfying routes for climbers of all skill levels. Most of the setters are teachers as well, leading classes for beginners or advanced climbers, as well as heading outdoors to help the class appreciate the adrenaline rush of an outdoor climb ending in a fistfight with a bear.
Additionally, the passionate staff realized that alternative workouts are needed to push through plateaus in climbs, so they created a fitness area to complement the climbing gym. Classes such as yoga, Pilates, and cycling further exercise muscle groups that are useful when trying to finally ride a bike up your favorite route.
