To avoid injury, rock climbers should always use safety ropes and never make friends with a mountain—even if it follows you home. Practice safe scaling with today's Groupon: for $8, you get a one-day pass, plus climbing gear (a $16 value), to The Phoenix Rock Gym in Tempe.

With more than 15,000 square feet of textured climbing terrain, a two-tiered bouldering area, and 56 top ropes, The Phoenix Rock Gym's sculpted climbing surfaces challenge neophyte rock wranglers and expert cliff climbers alike with numerous, continually changing routes. Adventurists new to rock-groping or spider-like people that don't remember how to abseil and belay can relax as the expert, friendly staff teaches the ins and outs of climbing safely. The rock gym's walls are covered with textured products that mimic the conditions of real rocks—faces, cracks, varied holds, and sharp angles included.

Crawling vertically at The Phoenix Rock Gym is sort of like training and running a marathon, but you get the adrenaline rush in shorter, more intensely concentrated spurts. Indoor climbing is a great way for someone to get started or an easy way for experienced climbers to hone their skill without nature pounding them with rain and chunks of cloud. Social climbers can purchase an additional Groupon and learn how to climb with people they trust, or they can buy three and learn to climb with people they're highly suspicious of and friends they trust watching them.

  • Seriously, it was a TON of fun! – Peggy T., 7/2/10

Phoenix Rock Gym

With walls stretching to heights of 30 feet and more than 15,000 square feet of climbing surface, Phoenix Rock Gym is an impressive sight to behold. Seasoned instructors stand at the foot of ropes and bouldering walls, guiding clients of all ages who scamper up and down faces, cracks, arêtes, and chimneys within the comfort of a climate-controlled gym, safe from mountain goats that have developed a taste for human gym shorts. The gym's assortment of more than 50 courses accommodates all skill levels, from first-time climbers to the seasoned scalers of the Phoenix New Times. Staff members switch up holds and paint colors regularly to keep climbs from getting stale.
