The ability to climb a wall can be useful in many situations, whether it be a prison break or an angry girlfriend who refuses to let down her hair. Prepare an alternative to lock-scaling with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a two-week unlimited indoor rock climbing package at The Quarry in Provo (a $59 value). The package includes the following:
- Two weeks of unlimited indoor rock climbing
- Two one-hour rock-climbing classes
- All necessary equipment
As a rock-climbing facility designed by and for climbers, The Quarry hosts more than 12,000 square feet of wall space with challenges for all ability levels of skyward scrambler. 125 top rope and lead routes include vertical avenues shooting up to 55 feet through a steadily rising mountain-goat population, and the bouldering-exclusive second story contains walls up to 14 feet high. New routes and bouldering obstacles are added each week, meaning climbers must rely on their own sense of up and down or the microscopic sherpa they keep in their backpack. Two 60-minute Explore Climbing classes set up gravity-defying guests with expert teachers for group-based instruction. Students learn proper use of equipment and climbing basics, such as belaying and how to use a banana as an ice axe.
