What You'll Get


The road less traveled is often the more fulfilling one, especially when it bypasses Robert Frost's tiger pits. Diverge from a rote route with this Groupon.

The Deal

$49 for a basic climbing skills outdoor rock-climbing course (a $100 value)

All classes take place on a Saturday, beginning at 8:15 a.m. until around 1 p.m., before temperatures get too high. Additionally, most of the climbing takes place in shaded areas.

  • July 20
  • July 27

During the 101: Basic Climbing Skills course, budding climbers learn the ropes and practice basic skills on diverse faces and slabs. Instructors distribute safety gear, helmets, harnesses, and rocket-powered grappling hooks before moving on to scaling techniques. Participants learn how to simplify scrambles up sheer slabs, vertical faces, and daring cracks. Skills practiced include hands-on top-rope climbs, voice commands, and proper belay safety.

About Rock About


When students sign on for a Rock About climbing class, they don't just learn to rope their way up mountainsides and trade banter with goats. The company's certified guides also educate clients about the cultural history and complex geology of the climbing sites. On climbing treks to Reimers Ranch Park, owner Adam Mitchell and his team teach top-roping and belaying techniques while exploring the notion that climbing allows humankind to commune safely with the earth's natural wonders. For those uneasy about vertical exploration, the guides offer non-climbing adventures such as interpretive hikes.
