Some people are born to run; some are born to scramble up and down walls and ceilings like a curious baby whose hands and feet are covered in honey. Unleash your inner baby with today's Groupon to climbers' paradise: for $20, you get the introductory climbing course at RockVentures (a $40 value). All necessary climbing equipment is included with the course at no extra cost. This Groupon gets you one additional admission to the facility (which is in addition to the one you are getting to take the course).
Instructors who have trained groups from the University of Virginia, the California Department of Education, and international companies teach RockVentures' introductory course within a sprawling 18,000-square-foot facility. The course teaches 10 basic cliffhanging techniques, safety skills, belaying procedures, and various drills for self-improvement and making yourself appear taller. After the course, develop your rock-scaling talent and increase vertical versatility during an additional admission.
At RockVentures, climbers of all ages and experience levels scale challenge-filled walls lining the 18,000-square-foot facility. Classes impart students with surefooted spirit and fundamental climbing skills such as belaying the rope for comrades. In addition to individual challenges, the center hosts several group events, ranging from team-building weekends to kids' birthday parties and summer camps. Rock Ventures grants discounted admission to veterans and their families with advance reservation on Saturday mornings, and helps disabled climbers conquer the rocks by using block-and-tackle systems to hoist themselves up.
Owner Kent Winchester informs his work at RockVentures with a multifaceted history of leadership and team-building experience, including a stint in the Peace Corps.
