What You'll Get
Some people are born to run; some are born to scramble up and down walls and ceilings like a Tokay gecko. Unleash your inner lizard with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a one-month membership ($75) and access to a Climbing 101 class ($35) at The Front Climbing Club in Garden City (a $110 total value).
The Front Climbing Club allows stone-scalers an indoor environment where they can train, practice, and scratch their wall-ascending itch. The club's Climbing 101 class will tutor mounting novices on climbing safely, rope skills, basic techniques, and ascender's lingo, ensuring that new climbers are capable of scaling their next-door neighbor's castle battlements before the next full moon. Climbers can take their newly acquired skills to the club's 6,500-square-foot facility, featuring 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, you may need a moment to quietly bask in your triumph over gravity, the most mean-spirited mass-attracting natural phenomenon.
The Front Climbing Club is equipped with a full fitness gym, featuring cardio and weight-training equipment, row machines, ellipticals, and a squat rack, prepping muscles and organs for the upcoming grind upward. The knowledgeable staff will work with each climber and answer any questions, so don't be ashamed to inquire into how to intimidate the wall by trash talking about its mother.
