  • River Sports
    A seasoned purveyor of outdoor sporting equipment, River Sports Outfitters' adventure experts put gear to work on indoor climbing walls and local kayaking excursions. Rock-top scramblers suit up in provided harness and shoes at the climbing gym, lined with vertical slopes that impersonate cliff faces with gritty-textured walls, rocks in many shapes and sizes, and animatronic dancing mountain goats. Climbers of all skill levels can strengthen and stretch muscles on ascents up the tall rope-climbing wall, or free-climb on the shorter bouldering walls, which lose the rope and vertical ascent in favor of low routes that challenge spidery-men to master specific maneuvers and grips.

  • Durhamtown Tellico
    The Nantahala National Forest surrounds Durhamtown Tellico, forming a natural barrier that closes off the wilderness from the outside world. Miles of trails wind across the 3,000-acre property, where ATVs and dirt bikes soar through dense forests that open out onto panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and everything they watch over: rolling hills, waterfalls, and streams ripe for fishing for rainbow trout. Head to "The Bowl" and you'll find a 50-acre area of rock faces and boulders ready to test even the most experienced climbers and robot vacuums. In fact, the most grueling face has a $5,000 prize for anyone skilled enough to scale its summit. When you're worn out from a day of adventure, you can head back to the campground for a good night's rest.

  • Rocky Top Guides
    Rocky Top Guides' AMGA-certified instructors take their customers on outdoor expeditions to scale rocky terrain across scenic Lookout Mountain and through regions in Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia. The expert climbers lead both half- and full-day trips that can cover climbing styles such as standard rock climbing, solo climbing, and aid climbing, which teaches how to ascend fixed ropes without a bat cape. With a 6:1 climber-to-guide ratio, the staff easily customizes each trip to clients' individual skill levels and goals. They also include all requisite climbing gear for free, asking that climbers only bring a few essential items and pens to get autographs from mountain trolls.

  • Tennessee Bouldering Authority
    Tennessee Bouldering Authority's staff design climbing paths that pose physical and mental challenges across nearly 3,000 square feet of rock-climbing space. The team upholds a philosophy centered entirely around bouldering, a discipline that allows climbers to move unencumbered by belay systems and unbidden visions of their rope turning into a snake. Meanwhile, away from the rock walls, guests in workout classes use weights, training boards, and gymnastic rings to add some diversity to their exercise sessions. Energetic music blasts from a sound system during yoga classes, while climbers yodel their own workout beats on guided outdoor-climbing trips.
