Barring the aid of a jet pack or cliff stairs, rock climbing remains the most efficient way to rescue a kitten from the precipice of a craggy canyon. Prepare for feline heroics at Sport Climbing Center on Northpark Drive. Today's Groupon includes all-day admission (a $12 value, harness and belay device included), shoe rental (a $5 value), and an initial training class (a $5 value). Equipped with more than 13,000 square feet of sculpted climbing surfaces, Sport Climbing Center provides recreational mountaineers of all ages and skill levels with top-quality terrain for leading, top-roping, and bouldering. The indoor facility enables scalers to refine their spider-like instincts without exposure to the sweltering sun, the sizzling rain, or the scorching insults of wisecracking bald eagles.
The Colorado Springs Independent listed Sport Climbing Center in its Phys Ed InSider section and has mentioned it in articles about Colorado Springs’s fame as Climbing Capital USA and about rising interest in the sport. The facility also boasts more than 300 Facebook fans:

Sport Climbing Center
For more than two decades, Sports Climbing Center has provided a spacious and well-appointed destination for new climbers and seasoned ascenders alike. After outfitting visitors with shoes, harnesses, and Spider-Man costumes, staffers lead lessons and spot climbers as they navigate the footholds and handholds of facility's brightly colored walls or the newly added bouldering wall. The center also hosts a variety of competitions and leads outdoor excursions for students to put their learned skills to work on rock faces and unsuspecting statues.
