The Fine Print

Promotional value expires Mar 21, 2012. Amount paid never expires. Limit 1 per couple, may buy 2 additional as gifts. Limit 1 per visit. Must be 13 or older for Belay Class. Must sign waiver. Classes are non-transferable. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

If the Indiana Jones films have taught us anything, it is that in order to have a successful teaching career, one must train one's upper body to be adept at dangling. Channel your inner action hero with today's Groupon: for $25, you get an introduction to belaying class for two and a complimentary return visit for rock climbing at Vertical Ventures (a $50 value).

During 20-minute introductory climbing classes, knowledgeable staff members teach beginner rock ascenders ages 13 and older how to scale Vertical Ventures’ 6,000 square feet of sport climbs and boulders. Climbers learn how to properly don safety gear before instructors teach them how to manage the ropes with belay instruction and dinner with a killer stroganoff recipe. Class takers receive climbing rights and gear for that day, and they may break free from ground-bound lives once more with a complimentary return visit that does not include gear rental ($11 for shoes, harness, and chalk bag).

Scalers can then more fully explore the handholds of top-roped indoor peaks, smaller boulder climbs, and ceiling routes that take climbers to new lateral heights. Staff members frequently change the handholds to ensure routes stay fresher than the prince of Bel-Air. Minors must produce a waiver signed by a legal parent or guardian, and Vertical Ventures suggests calling for available class times.

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.

Had a great time, great staff and set in awsome.

The St.Pete location is better for intermediate to advanced climbers, Tampa is still good, but shorter walls and smaller in general.
