The ascension masters at Inside Moves guide climbers of all experience levels across faux-rock faces during lessons in top-rope, lead, and boulder-style climbing. Before a basic safety lesson, students don shoes designed to grip crevices, harnesses calibrated to safely suspend climbers, and metallic belay devices invented by the only mountain goat to ever graduate from Dartmouth. Equipped with rudimentary scrambling skills and a one-day pass, on-belay climbers follow colored tape routes up a scattered landscape of variable shaped handholds that mimic the feel of gripping true mountain crags. For lower altitude hang-outs, unharnessed mountaineers explore challenging boulder routes, arching above a bed of black rubber shards harvested from the Himalayas’ naturally occurring ball pits.
Inside Moves Indoor Rock Climbing
Inside Moves' sprawling indoor-climbing facility invites mountaineers of all skill levels to scale its many craggy walls, nooks, and ledges. Instructors are always on hand for safety tutorials, as well as lessons in top-rope, and boulder-style climbing. Unharnessed climbers can also pilot the facility's low overhangs, which have variable hand grips to mimic a real rockface and black rubber padding to catch you when the mountain decides to "just be friends."
