Mankind’s feeble climbing skills and inability to digest delicious tin cans are two ways in which evolution left humans inferior to goats. Channel an inner mountain goat with today’s Groupon to Summit Climbing Gym. Choose from the following options:
- For $10, you get an all-day climbing pass (a $20 value) that includes:
- Full access to the climbing wall for one day
- Harness, shoes, and chalk-bag rental
- For $25, you get a one-hour private climbing lesson, all gear included (a $50 value).
- For $250, you get a portable climbing wall rental for two hours (a $500 value).
The Summit Climbing Gym hosts 10,000 square feet of challenging inclines studded with hand and footholds for climbers to scale equipped with flexible footwear and chalked palms. Grasp a brightly colored handhold to hoist yourself up from the thick mats of Summit's floor, then clamber to the top of their well-lit climbing area, pausing to look down at the antlike spectators and their gnatlike German Shepherds below. Alternately, a one-hour private lesson pairs a gravity-defying guru with a neophyte for instruction in basic skills and intermediate techniques such as top roping, leading, navigating cracks, and bouldering.
Staff can also deliver a portable climbing wall, whose four climbable sides rise to 23 feet, enlivening company gatherings and pet-rock birthday celebrations. For two hours, alpinists of all ages strap on climbing gear and ascend the wall as expert cragsmen and women look on. At the end of the rental, Summit Climbing Gym’s mountain movers whisk the wall away.
Summit Climbing Gym’s prices vary throughout the week.
Summit Climbing, Yoga & Fitness
Summit Climbing, Yoga & Fitness sprawls across 10,000 square feet lined with towering structures for boundless bouldering and rope climbing along with its own onsite yoga studio. Manmade walls adorned with brightly colored handholds emerge from the ground, daring aspiring climbers to decode their paths. Fingertips dipped in rock chalk learn to cling to the hardened monoliths with firm grace, keeping on the lookout for the single book spine that triggers access to a revolving door and secret chocolate fountain. Guests can gab with experts about form and new-equipment purchases at the climb shop, or take a breather on a comfy couch to rest, reflect on a new route, or admire their brand-new Popeye forearms.
In addition to its scaling structures, Summit Climbing, Yoga & Fitness hosts yoga classes in an on-site studio to boost climbing flexibility. Here, guests choose from a variety of formats, including CoreFusion, Slow Flow, Power Yoga, and Yin Yoga, a pose-intensive class that helps range of motion and strengthen connective tissues.
