What You'll Get
Some people are born to run; some are born to scramble up and down walls and ceilings like a tokay gecko. Unleash your inner lizard with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a beginners' climbing course and a one-month pass with equipment rental to Toronto Climbing Academy (up to a $146 value). This Groupon's value equals the normal cost of a beginners' lesson, a one-month membership, and equipment rental for an estimated four visits to the centre over the month (package value is based on four visits, but buyers have unlimited visits for the month).
Toronto Climbing Academy endows humans with the rock-scaling abilities of mountain goats, starting with the beginner's climbing lesson, during which certified instructors provide step-by-step tutorials on basic technique and equipment operation ($35, call ahead to schedule). Once equipped to conquer inclines, students turn knowledge into action with a one-month pass to climb the academy's more than 12,000 square feet of terrain and perfect yodelling at the top-out exits (a $71 value after beginner discount of $44 off regular membership rate of $115). The new facilities sharpen mock-mountainside mastery with 80 climbing stations spanning 120 distinct climbs, including boulders, overhangs, and slabs. Along with providing grapplers faux facades to test out a new robotic arm, this deal includes harness ($5/visit) and shoe ($5/visit) rentals for the month (estimated $40 value based on four visits—value could be more or less depending on the number of visits).
Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult to take the beginner's climbing lesson.
