After a brief facilities tour, participants warm up for their first ascent on a beginner wall’s foot and handholds. As they climb, instructors teach them basic manoeuvres, show them how to fall safely into a sitting position, and demonstrate how to communicate with spotters. The staff equips each climber with climbing shoes and a chalk bag. Two-week gym access passes take effect starting the next day and grant visitors unlimited all-day climbs and full rentals. Though the pass can’t be used toward other classes, customers are free to ask facility staff for help honing skills learned in class. Classes start Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6 p.m.<p>

The Hive

As rock-climber, Andrew Coffey saw a growing interest in bouldering among his fellow climbers and he also noticed a lack of dedicated bouldering gyms in the city— so he decided to build one himself. He created The Hive, a 10,000-square-foot space full of custom-designed rock that can be climbed without ropes. He later added on Hive Yoga, which caters to athletes trying to enhance their performance, as well as those just looking to improve their overall well-being and relax.

The welcoming, nonjudgmental yoga classes take place in a climate-controlled room that's fully soundproof, thus blocking out the sound of the avalanches falling from the nearby boulders. While natural light pours in from the windows, students flow through yoga poses and learn about balance, health, nutrition, and relaxation.

After class, students can relax with a cup of tea at the Arc’teryx Beta Lounge and observation deck. They can speak with their instructor here, too, and get to know their classmates better.
