Q:

The 101 classes are at 6pm M, W, F and last two hours which would make it 8pm. If the gym closes at 10pm then I would only get 2 Hrs of climb time. The Groupon states climbing for the rest of the day which would not be a fair amount of time as compared to someone taking the class on a Saturday morning and then getting to climb the rest of the day.

Tracy  asked on  Mar 16, 2012

A:

The class usually doesn't take the full 2 hours. The remaining time is usually plenty of time to get a ton of climbs in. However, if you want more time than that then yes, you would have to take the Saturday or Sunday classes.

Q:

Can the Rock Climbing 101 and 102 Groupons be used any day of the week?

Nichole S.  asked on  Mar 16, 2012

A:

Nichole, we have specific days and times for our Rock Gym 101 & 102 classes and reservations are required. Please visit our website at www.upperlimits.com or give us a call at (314)991-2516 for a class schedule and available times. Classes do fill up quickly, so I would recommend booking about 2 weeks in advance. Thanks!

Q:

For the birthday party does it include the equipment to climb? Also is it the same price for upto 25 kids?

Tonya P.  asked on  Mar 15, 2012

A:

Hi Tonya. The party includes up to 25 climbers and is the same price no matter how many climbers you have. It includes the necessary equipment (climbing harnesses, ropes, belay devices). It does not include climbing shoes. Climbing in tennis shoes will work just fine. Hope this answers your questions!

Q:

My daughter will be at climbing camp in July. Could I use the groupon and take class and climb while she is at camp?

Shawn M.  asked on  Mar 15, 2012

A:

Sorry Shawn, but we do not offer the Rock Gym 101 class during the day while the Summer Camp will be in session. If you would like, you can purchase the Groupon and only use the day pass portion of it, which would include the rental gear and will still save you a little bit of money. It won't be as big of a savings, but it will save you some. Thanks! We look forward to seeing your daughter in camps this Summer!

Q:

I noticed on the Upper Limits website that there aren't many Rock 102 classes scheduled at either location. Will there be more scheduled? Will there be a chance to take it over the summer?

Karen T.  asked on  Mar 15, 2012

A:

Currently they are offered every other Monday evening at the West County location and once a month at the Downtown location. If there is an increased demand for the class, then yes, we will definitely add more classes. You can always call and request a certain date and if we can fill the class up, we can hold a class on your requested date. Thanks!

Q:

Do you have to do the class?

Kelly B.  asked on  Mar 15, 2012

A:

It is not necessary to take the class. You can climb with the assistance of an autobelay, which is a system that you clip into with your harness and it lowers you down automatically after you ascend the route. We have 10 of them at the West County gym and 4 at the Downtown location. However, if you take the class, you have much more of the gym opened up to you, so I would definitely recommend it.

Q:

We are looking to purchase this for a party. Can the party be setup at either of the two locations?

Gary I.  asked on  Mar 15, 2012

A:

Absolutely!

Q:

What is the difference between Rock Climbing Class 101 and 102? I have never done Rock Climbing before, but I am extremely athletic. Should I have buy the Groupon for 101 or 102?

Kelly B.  asked on  Mar 15, 2012

A:

101 or knowing how to belay (work the ropes for a climber) is a prerequisite for the 102 class. In 101, you learn how to safely use the equipment and tie the knots, as well as belaying for a climber. You would definitely want to start there. The 102 class gets more into technique and actual climbing. It is a very good class for climbers that want to take it to the next level. I would recommend purchasing the package deal with 101 & 102 to get the most out of your climbing experience. They would be taken on separate days and both of the classes include a climbing pass for the rest of the day.

Q:

How long does the Rock climbing 101 class take? I don't want to be sitting in a class half of the time.

Kelly B.  asked on  Mar 15, 2012

A:

The class takes between 1.5 and 2 hours, depending on the size of the class and the ages of the participants. Thanks Kelly!

Q:

If I purchase the 101 & 102 deal for $30 for my son, does he do the 2, 2-hour classes in the same day or can he use them on 2 different days & climb the remainder of each?

Terry &.  asked on  Mar 15, 2012

A:

He would use them on 2 different days and climb the remainder of each. Reservations are required for each class. See you soon!
