Mankind's feeble climbing skills and inability to digest delicious tin cans are two ways in which evolution left humans inferior to goats. Channel an inner mountain goat with today's Groupon to The North Texas Outdoor Pursuit Center in Carrollton. Choose from the following options:
- For $15, you get a one-day pass for two (a $30 value).
- For $45, you get two one-month passes (a $90 value).
- For $60, you get four rock-climbing basics courses to split evenly between two people (a $120 value).
The friendly instructors at The North Texas Outdoor Pursuit Center show adventurers the ins and outs of rock climbing, wilderness backpacking, and more. The center’s 120-foot climbing gym offers easier ascension than frozen skyscraper scaffolding to daily and monthly pass holders who can scramble up edifices with included equipment and gear. Two basic rock-climbing courses, lasting from three to four hours apiece, provide on-the-ground instruction from experienced teachers before sets of neophyte climbers get the chance to scale the walls themselves. Call ahead to schedule courses or to improve your telephone speaking voice.
North Texas Outdoor Pursuit Center
Abiding by the Center for Outdoor Ethics’ Leave No Trace principles, the adventurous guides at North Texas Outdoor Pursuit Center train bodies and minds to venture into deep wildernesses or up sheer cliffs without marring nature with evidence of their excursions. A map room and library help climbers plot eco-conscious regional excursions near Mineral Wells or the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge or explore wilderness courses that reveal Guadalupe National Park’s steep summits or Ouachita National Forest’s uniformed raccoon park rangers. Dominated by a soaring 120-foot climbing wall, the center’s gym bustles with preparatory activity as guides test students’ ascent abilities and improve their form with instructive, one-on-one critiques.
