The staff are super friendly and helpful, and there is zero pressure for you to get a membership. It's such a relaxed atmosphere and a lot of the members are very friendly as well. The class was informative and fun and definitely worth the price.

What You'll Get

Before the invention of moon shoes, people had to attack pesky cliff faces with forearms of steel and Funyun-fueled intensity. Scale vertical surfaces the old-fashioned way with today's Groupon. For $39, you get an Intro to Belay class and a five-day punch card to Vertical Ventures, located in West Park, a $95 value.

The introductory belay class ($35) includes all the necessary equipment and imparted knowhow necessary to start scaling indoor peaks. Learn how to properly don the safety harness and tie knots, and also get acquainted with safety rules and what "belaying" means. More-experienced climbers can skip the class by demonstrating belaying proficiency, but they will still get a day of climbing and gear rental in addition to the five-day punch card. For those who take the class, it also includes your climbing for the day. With over 6,000 square feet of climbing surfaces across multiple climbing styles, there is no shortage of man-made stones to unturn.

Your five-day punch card ($60) gets you climbing access any five days within the expiration date (60 days after your intro class), but does not include gear rentals ($11 total for shoes, harness, and chalk bag each day). Climbing at Vertical Ventures is a great way for someone to get started, or is a perfect after-work and climb-during-inclement-weather alternative for experienced climbers who want continuous practice in the off-season and between manned explorations of Mars. First-time mountaineers need to pass the belay class before climbing at Vertical Ventures. As you ascend, the friendly staff is happy to give you some basic help along the way.

Climbers under age 18 must have parental consent.

About Vertical Ventures

Thousands of square feet of climbing space at Vertical Ventures beckons climbers of all skill levels skyward with rigorous scrambles to the top of peaks, over boulders, and along treacherous ceiling routes. The staff routinely overhauls old configurations to reveal fresh paths, forcing climbers to exhibit physical and mental agility while bouldering, sport climbing, or top roping––a sport in which climbers ascend to a mountain's summit to lasso its goats. The gym caters to both the beginning and expert climber with challenges spanning the difficulty spectrum, as well as an array of classes on the basics of climbing, movement and technique, or rappelling.
