What You'll Get


Climbers scale mountains for the feeling of accomplishment and the heap of free flags waiting at the summit. Reach new personal heights with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $20 for an intro to rock-climbing class with gear for one (up to a $40 value)
  • $40 for an intro to rock-climbing class with gear for two (up to an $80 value)
  • $80 for an intro to rock-climbing class with gear for four (up to a $160 value)

With just one instructor to every six students, the intro to rock-climbing class covers the basics of indoor-climbing safety and technique. Instructors teach small groups how to secure their harnesses, tie and check their own climbing knots, and use basic belay techniques to scale a wall. The class includes rental shoes and harnesses, and students leave with the skills necessary to tackle most walls in the gym. View the class schedule here.

Student, senior, and military discounted tickets are available but this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Santa Barbara Rock Gym


The colorful hand and footholds that dot the sharply angled cliffs, overhangs, and arches at Santa Barbara Rock Gym almost beg visitors to climb them. The more than 8,500 square feet of climbable space, designed by El Dorado Climbing Walls, feature enough varied routes and ominous Viking runes to challenge climbers of all ability levels. This range of terrain and attention to detail is essential—the facility is Santa Barbara's only dedicated indoor rock-climbing gym.

Owner Will Russ, a former surfing photographer from Houston, created this space to bring the rocky wilderness indoors and foster a sense of adventure among climbers in a controlled environment. His instructors, each certified by the Climbing Wall Association, teach classes introducing basic belaying and sport-lead techniques. They also delve into the advanced skills required for bouldering and training mountain goats to fetch dropped carabiners.
