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: for $40, you get a climbing package at The Crux Climbing & Bouldering (a $107.50 value). The package includes:
- Introductory lesson
- One-month pass with rentals for all lessons included
At The Crux climbing enthusiasts scurry up 12,000 square feet of scaling walls and over 3,000 square feet of bouldering on a quest for improved fitness and rock-walking mastery. During the introductory course, unseasoned climbers learn fundamental belay techniques while downloading knot know-how and indoor communication methods into their head computers. With a one-month pass, visitors can gracefully clamber up walls dotted with technicolor hand and foot holds, reaching heights up to 72 feet and yodelling the Rocky theme from the top. Each wall boasts routes to challenge both beginner and expert climbers, as well as ample belay space to stay safely strapped in. An 80-foot rappelling station allows for methodical descents, and multipitch routes ensure practice for standing, hanging, and handstanding belay stances. Climbers elevate and cascade safely at The Crux under the watchful eyes of nationally and internationally certified staff members.
