What You'll Get
It has been said that to find true joy, one must ingest a thousand rose petals, housebreak a camel, and scale the world's largest boulder. Today's Groupon gets you one step closer to that elusive feat. For $12, you get three day-passes to The Circuit Bouldering Gym, a $36 value.
Located on Southwest Macadam Avenue just north of Willamette Park, The Circuit boasts one of the largest bouldering-only gyms in the world. Inside, climbers cling to low-to-the-ground rocks where they're free from ropes, harnesses, and hungry mountain goats. No experience is necessary, meaning novice climbers and hardcore devotees alike can creep under, over, and possibly through the colorful collection of faux boulders. The climbing routes change on a weekly basis, ensuring a varied selection of new challenges each visit. The kid-friendly gym also houses a special children's section, which features a climb up to a slide that ferries young explorers to the cushioned floor. Though no special equipment is required, climbing shoes ($4) and chalk buckets ($2) are available for rental. Minors are required to have a parent or legal guardian sign a waiver prior to arrival.
Bouldering is a great way to build upper-body strength, improve flexibility, and burn calories from recent syrup-eating contests. With hard work and regular training, anyone of any age can learn this valuable getaway technique for quickly scaling walls and navigating neighborhood meteors.
Urban Climber magazine loved The Circuit's friendly atmosphere and dedication to the sport, saying:
*When you walk in the front door, the "it" hits you. Not the 10,000+ square-foot space, but how cozy and friendly it feels…You can tell The Circuit Bouldering Gym truly cares about the sport. – Spencer Williams
