I felt very safe there because of the very good/careful instructions given to our small class, enabling individual attention to each student. There was also a watchful staff presence in the climbing area. All in all, lots of fun!

Our instructor, Doc, was great. This was a really different date night idea and an exercise in communication and trust ;) My fiance and I had a wonderful time!

I realized the steal of a deal I got with this groupon upon examining the actual prices of Upper Limits. It was quite the discount! I took advantage of this deal because it was a reasonable price. Rock climbing is out of my comfort zone, so the groupon was great for me to give it a try without a giant financial commitment. I loved my experience, thanks Groupon!

About Upper Limits

Chris and Pam Schmick's passion for climbing inspired them to clear tons of rotting soybeans out of an abandoned grain silo in Illinois and transform it into a state-of-the-art climbing facility. Now, in St. Louis, the duo has converted a 10,000-square-foot historic train station into a climber’s haven. They installed massive rock arches that soar 35 feet in the air, and dotted the climbing walls with a diverse mix of slabs, cracks, and dihedrals. After their successful expansion in St. Louis, the pair acquired a 14,000-square-foot gym space in West County in which they designed a full-service climbing paradise. All three gyms cater to beginner climbers, with 18-foot-tall bouldering walls and 14 autobelays. The gyms furnish climbers with showers and a locker room, and stock their pro shops with top-tier equipment from Black Diamond and La Sportiva.
