Hangar 18 provides amateur and experienced wall-crawlers the opportunity to train and develop surface-scaling skills in one of three well-equipped climbing gyms. Walls shaped into carbon copies of carbon crags are covered with textured products to mimic the indentions, protrusions, overhangs, and underbites of real rocks. During the belaying lessons, Hangar 18’s expert scalers outfit students with rental gear, and then drill altitude-defying recruits with one hour of instruction in effective rope techniques before setting limbs free in the facility. Month- and yearlong memberships include access to all three locations and cover unlimited climbing, gear rental, yoga classes, and one free guest pass per month to conduct suspended interviews.
Mountaineers can use the first two Groupon options for two days or two months on their own or bring along a reverse-plummeting partner. Whether patrons seek all-season indoor practice or wish to accustom their bodies to upward travel without the aid of jet packs, Hangar 18’s three locations feature more than 35,000 square feet of textured climbing terrain, world-class bouldering, and massive caves with routes up to 70 feet long. Each facility boasts its own distinct tracts and obstacles such as Riverside’s freestanding bouldering wall, Upland’s lofty ceiling climb, or Hawthorne’s lifelike animatronic goats.
Though Hangar 18 sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
With more than 55,000 square feet of climbing surfaces, Hangar 18 offers ample terrain for climbers of all skill levels. From first-timers just learning to belay to seasoned climbers seeking a vertical challenge, athletes of all stripes can find suitable terrain and helpful assistance from experienced staff members. At the various Hangar 18 outposts, climbers can find top ropes and lead routes circling freestanding boulders, challenging crack climbs, and 40-foot roof climbs. And, after traversing 70-foot routes through lead caves and descending towering boulders, climbers can decompress in a yoga class.
