Contrary to what one might assume, rock climbing is not the opposite of rock tumbling, though it is still inadvisable to enjoy both activities concurrently. Learn to tumble upward with today's deal: for $22, you get a two-hour rock-climbing class and a two-week pass (up to a $69 value for non-members) at Triangle Rock Club, located in Morrisville. Climbers must be at least 12 years old to use this Groupon.
Triangle Rock Club’s state-of-the-art facility is home to more than 9,000 square feet of expertly crafted terrain with upward of 100 routes. Today's deal gifts beginning wall-walkers with the Introduction to Climbing class, a two-hour course that teaches students all the basic skills necessary for successfully holding on to a rocky facade that cares neither for your safety nor your unfinished, thought-provoking autobiography. Covering rope techniques, belaying, bouldering, and equipment etiquette, the class is designed to introduce first-time climbers to the age-old art of summiting every imposing peak in sight. After the session, graduates get a 14-day pass to test their newly acquired talents in TRC's indoor cliff-gripping world, with floors plastered with shock-absorbing foam. All equipment is included during this two-week-long admittance into the realm of climbing.
Founded by two former Marines, Triangle Rock Club offers customers a climate-controlled interior, a lounge with WiFi and an HDTV, and a large fitness center where guests can complement climbing's full-body workout with weights, kettlebells, squat racks, and more. The intro class is held Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon. Appointments are required; TRC recommends scheduling your class two weeks in advance.
Triangle Rock Club does not yet have many reviews available, but it has more than 1,100 Facebook fans.
