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 $30, you get one climbing lesson and a one-week pass (up to a $194 value) at Vertical Hold Sport Climbing Center on Distribution Avenue. After finishing the first week of climbing, Groupon holders are entitled to an additional 20% off membership.

The climb facilitators at Vertical Hold teach avid experts and aspiring neophytes alike to scale rigorous rock faces, including a top-out boulder, utilizing the bouldering method of climbing. Beginners can embark on a vertical voyage under the aegis of an experienced, friendly staff member and learn rock-ascension basics, such as knot tying, belaying, and introductory climbing vernacular. After learning new mountain-conquering skills, or reacquiring old ones, spend a week at the Vertical Hold facility, where DJ Dorian spins records Monday nights. Gear rental is included with the seven-day pass. Vertical Hold also fosters physical rigor through yoga, rock climbing clinics, and barehanded bear-wrestling matches.
