  • Stone Age Rock Gym
    Within Stone Age Rock Gym's indoor facility, 4,500 square feet of textured climbing walls help visitors ascend to new heights. Bouldering, 32-foot lead routes, and top-rope climbing areas await gym guests, surrounding them in technicolor handholds that creep up the walls at challenging angles. Elsewhere, a simulated ice-climbing wall absorbs the blows of axes, and a gear shop preps climbers to ascend walls with the dexterity of Spiderman. A staff of certified guides lead classes that teach students as young as 6 the fundamental skills needed to ascend simulated peaks. Alternatively, the experts head up guided climbing trips to sites across the state. They help eager climbers scale the 30-foot Wolf Rock in Mansfield Hollow and reach the Sasquatch hugs awaiting them atop Ragged Mountain's 120-foot cliff.

And although the bikes and accessories are considerably different than the gear that first showed up in the shop windows, its core values?attentive customer service and thorough bike knowledge?are still the norm. The inventory of new bikes and accessories includes top brands such as Trek, Bontrager, and Pearl Izumi, and a dedicated staff is committed to keeping existing wheels on the road with tune-ups, repairs, and inspirational bike whispering.
