Climbers of all skill levels descend upon The Front Climbing Club’s nearly 10,000-square-foot indoor bouldering and rock-climbing wall. Specifically designed for bouldering, The Front’s varied, multicolored wall also challenges ascenders with a dedicated vertical wall for top-rope climbing. Each one-month member receives a guest pass to bring along a climbing buddy or a civilized mountain goat. In addition to rock climbing, visitors can work up a sweat on aerobics and weight-training equipment, stretch and bend in yoga and Pilates classes, or exercise wrists with foosball, ping-pong, and pool in the club room.
The Front Climbing Club
The Front Climbing Club has attracted a crew of passionate setters and climbers with various outdoor-climbing experience, earned while climbing around the world. The staff brings this knowledge to its route setting, filling the 20,000-square-foot space with bouldering routes and top-roping walls that will boggle the mind and body like a kiss from Albert Einstein. Instructors lead these climbing and bouldering classes as well as training sessions, either teaching the fundamentals or helping attendees of virtually any age and skill level master more advanced techniques. Also offered are yoga classes and a full array of strength and cardio equipment, which can provide year-round conditioning training. The Front runs afterschool kids’ programs and camps, helping young climbers hone skills needed for teamwork and concentration. The club's pro shop also keeps visitors prepared for climbing excursions by allowing them to stock up on specialty supplies, including rock shoes, ropes, alpine and ice gear, and training equipment.
