The road less traveled is often the more fulfilling one, especially when it bypasses Robert Frost’s tiger pits. Diverge from a rote route with today’s Groupon to Toronto Climbing Academy. Choose from the following options:
- For $24, you get a three-day climbing pass without equipment rental (a $48 value).
- For $29, you get a three-day climbing pass including equipment rental (a $78 value).
- For $45, you get a Beginner’s Climbing Lesson and a one-month climbing pass including equipment rental (a $146 value).
Three day passes are for experienced climbers. Newcomers to Toronto Climbing Academy need to pass a belay test before being allowed to climb independently, and new climbers must enroll in the Beginner’s Climbing Lesson.
Since 1993, the Toronto Climbing Academy has been endowing humans with rock-scaling abilities with indoor climbing facilities. In the Academy’s Beginner’s Climbing Lesson, climbers learn the ins and outs as well as the ups and ups of rock climbing from the Academy’s instructors, who provide step-by-step tutorials of basic technique, safety, and equipment handling. With instruction in incline conquering complete, students are free to put their knowledge into action with a one-month pass, including shoe, and harness rental. During their month of mock-mountainside mastering or with a three-day pass, climbers can take on walls and boulders, overpower overhangs, and scale slabs at the Toronto Climbing Academy’s new up-to-date climbing centre featuring more than 80 climbing stations and upwards of 4,000 square feet of bouldering terrain—ideal surfaces to bounce sound off of during a yodeling session.
Although Toronto Climbing Academy sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
