Threshhold Climbing and Fitness’s passionate staff of wall wranglers ushers climbers of all skill levels into bouldering and top-rope climbing with a bevy of classes and an expansive indoor gym. Before tying in, novice climbers learn the ropes with the Belay and Knotcraft class. During the introductory top-rope class, teachers certify beginners for belaying on many different devices, impart how to tie basic knots, and explain the Yosemite Decimal and V-scale route-difficulty rating systems, skills useful when deciding how much chalk to bring when climbing a lover’s latticework balcony. Over the course of five visits or one month, patrons can explore the hundreds of routes that pepper the gym’s rock-feature walls, replete with multihued routes that delineate difficulty and viable holds. Threshhold Climbing and Fitness supplements its high-flying rock workouts with down-to-earth training on traditional cardio and weightlifting machines, and crimp boards grant route scalers an opportunity to improve finger strength without daily challenging strangers to thumb wars.
