Rocks & Ropes and The Bloc climbing + fitness
Colorful handholds dot the artificial mountain range rising from the floors of Rocks & Ropes and The Bloc climbing + fitness’s 20,000-square-foot facility. Walls twist, turn, and arc into cave-like overhangs and swollen cliff sides, at the bases of which belayers heft students to new heights. A separate area houses auto-belays and treadwalls, in addition to cardio and weight equipment, which can help condition the body for hard climbing. Yoga and Pilates classes, taught by instructors with as many certifications as the climbing staff, can increase the flexibility needed to reach distant holds and the abdominal power needed to effectively yodel from a successfully scaled mountain top.
