The Front Climbing Club provides stone-scalers with a 6,500-square-foot indoor environment where they can train, practice, and scratch their wall-ascending itch. Mounting novices climb safely up walls, tightening up their rope skills, basic techniques, and ascender's lingo on one of Idaho's steepest climbing walls—a smooth, wood-composed wall nicknamed "The Wave." The club focuses on the art of bouldering, in which ropes are replaced by a crash pad to protect against injuries, allowing climbers to conquer walls with little equipment. For those with stringy sentiments, the club also offers top-rope climbing, and after an invigorating climb to the top, mountaineers may need a moment to quietly bask in their triumph over gravity, the most mean-spirited mass-attracting natural phenomenon
The Front Climbing Club is also equipped with a full fitness gym, featuring cardio and weight-training equipment, row machines, ellipticals, and a squat rack, which preps muscles and organs for the upcoming grind upward. The knowledgeable staff works closely with each climber and answers plaguing questions about climbing strategies, safety precautions, and tips on how to intimidate the wall by trash talking its mother.
