Mankind's feeble climbing skills and inability to digest delicious tin cans are two ways in which evolution left humans inferior to goats. Channel an inner mountain goat with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a rock-climbing package for two at Red Dragon Kenpo Karate in Fort Myers (a $45 value). The package includes:
- One hour of rock climbing for two people (a $25 value)
- Two rental harnesses (a $5 value each)
- Guidance from a professional instructor (a $10 value)
Vertical enthusiasts test their anti-gravity gumption against Red Dragon’s 14'x14' climbing wall during open-climb sessions six days a week. Divided into three sections for beginner, intermediate, and advanced scrabblers, the multifaceted wall can introduce an element of danger to first dates or partnered physics study sessions. After an experienced instructor explains safety precautions and basic belaying techniques, each novice scaler straps into a rental harness before going aloft to explore myriad handholds and footholds. Alternatively, a 6'x16' roof section challenges more advanced grips, while bouldering courses and a wall-to-ceiling climbing rope help mix up routines for regular customers or easily bored spiders.
Clients should call ahead for an appointment—check the rock climbing schedule to find a suitable time slot. While not included in today’s Groupon, Red Dragon also hones clients’ speed, agility, climbing skills, and spider monkey impressions in parkour classes.
