The road less traveled is often the more fulfilling one, especially when it bypasses Robert Frost’s tiger pits. Diverge from a rote route with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get an introductory rock-climbing package at The Edge Rock Gym (a $25 value). The package includes:

  • A day pass (a $15 value)
  • Harness (a $3 value)
  • Climbing shoes (a $4 value)
  • Chalk bag (a $1 value)
  • Belay device (a $2 value)
  • Orientation and instruction

The expert instructors at The Edge Rock Gym show beginning ascenders the ropes in an indoor facility with more than 8,000 square feet of climbing space. After a gym orientation and an instructional session on belaying, participants with the all-inclusive introductory package receive all the gear needed to scale the club’s faux terrain and on-site giants. With provisional shoes, a harness, a chalk bag, and a belay device, climbers can coordinate hands and feet for an all-out offensive on gravity. The climbing walls feature a variety of challenging routes designed by certified route setters and provide a venue for fun, intensive workouts that engage body and mind. The instructors guide beginners as they ascend, calling out foot-placement suggestions and routes to avoid high-altitude phone-book salesmen. Daily courses run approximately every two hours.

The Edge Rock Gym

To conquer a rockface is to overcome both mental and physical fatigue, and while everyone must make their way to the top on their own, every climber is part of a community. That's why The Edge Rock Gym has such a wealth of offerings, both on and off the wall.

Of course, the main draw at The Edge is its 8,000 square feet of climbing space. There, seasoned rock masters and neophytes alike can find plenty of opportunities to test their skills with top-roping, lead-climbing, and bouldering areas. To keep things interesting, nationally certified setters frequently update the routes. And those looking for structured classes can learn safety skills and rock-scaling techniques from experienced climbers.

But building a community requires more than just high ceilings and long ropes. That's why The Edge Rock Gym also fills it schedule with a host of fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates, and TRX. And between climbs and classes, visitors can just hang out and unwind at the foosball and ping-pong tables.
