Choose Between Two Options
- $34 for a two-hour Intro to Rock Climbing course ($69 value).
- $39 for a 12 rock-climbing visits with shoe and harness rental ($120 value)
Intro to Rock Climbing classes occurs every Wednesday from 6.30 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. Students outfitted with shoes and harness learn about belaying and climbing through demonstration and practice. They can return to the gym one week later to pass a verbal exam conducted by their instructor; successful completion can result in a belaying certification. Climbers can also access Redmond Athletic Club’s bevy of fitness facilities during that weeklong stretch.
Certified belayers and experienced climbers may opt for free-climbing privileges over the course of 12 visits. The rock-climbing apparatus’s routes are rewritten every three to six months. RAC’s wall does not have auto belays, so a belay-certified companion will be required for climbing.
Redmond Athletic Club
Redmond Athletic Club stands as a ziggurat built in honor of fitness. The 7,500-square-foot space resonates with music, vibrant colors, and natural light as personal trainers walk the spacious floors helping exercisers zero in on fitness goals. The open layout inspires exercisers as they gaze over rows of Precor ellipticals and exercise balls, stretch in the warmup area, or jog on treadmills. A strength-training room teems with equipment such as plate-loaded machines and free weights. Dry saunas and complimentary towel service soothe sore muscles after adventures in sweating and sculpting.
