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 Rock Club in New Rochelle. Choose from the following options:
- For $35, you get an intro-to-climbing class (a $75 value).
- For $55, you get an intro-to-climbing class for two (a $120 value).
- For $95, you get an intro-to-climbing class for four (a $240 value).
The experienced instructors at The Rock Club safely guide students through summit-reaching basics on a 40-foot climbing wall. During each intro-to-climbing class, the seasoned climbers educate groups of up to four novice wall-scramblers in proper equipment use, knots, belaying, safety, and fluency in the igneous formations’ secret language. After 90 minutes of expert instruction in a 101 course, students qualify to take a belaying test on their next visit, certifying them to manage the safety ropes for a friend during regular climbing sessions and granting them VIP passes to mountaintop speakeasies.
Once certified and well acquainted with the basics of safety and rope management, climbers explore the extensive course’s varied terrain, jutting out of the expansive wraparound wall. The course challenges scalers of all skill levels with 80 climbing stations, 200 routes, and teleporting toeholds. The Rock Club equips students with all necessary hardware, including a harness, shoes, and a chalk bag, and visitors are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing to accommodate freedom of movement.
Though The Rock Club gives discounts for selected classes, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Rock Club
A veritable mountain greets climbers inside The Rock Club, challenging them to scale its 40' high face without speaking a single word. After pulling their eyes away from the main wall, guests discover the gym's other rocky offerings, including 80 climbing stations, more than 200 individual routes, and muscle-testing bouldering cliffs. Experienced staff members with a passion for climbing roam the gym, eager to help veteran climbers reach new heights, introduce new climbers to the sport during beginners' classes, or describe the scent found at the top of the Himalayan Mountains. The Rock Club also offers lead climbing, slacklining, and movement classes as well as a kids program with a competitive climbing team, junior programs, and camps.
