Contrary to what one might assume, rock climbing is not the opposite of rock tumbling, though it is still inadvisable to enjoy both activities concurrently. Learn to tumble upward with today’s Groupon to Stronghold Athletic Club, a rock climbing facility and fitness center on Huger Street.

More than 6,000 square feet of grabby-studded climbing surface challenges both novice and post-novice wall huggers, who can hang out with gravity on a 40-foot tower or in two bouldering caves. Choose from two options (both a $30 value):

  • $17 for a belay training course that covers the essentials of climbing safety (small groups; about two hours long)
  • $17 for two open climbs, good for access to both the climbing wall and the boulders (each session includes a $10 climbing pass, $2.50 shoe rental, and $2.50 harness rental)

Public climbing is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on weeknights, and from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.
