Bouldering and Rock Climbing

If you’re interested in learning how to climb, or you’re looking to amp up your climbing strength and skills, climbing gym is a great way to go.

Available classes, as well as pricing and the height and complexity of climbing walls, vary between gyms. Some short-walled facilities only offer bouldering. Some big-wall gyms are architectural temples that have athletic-club amenities ranging from weight rooms to snack bars and childcare.

Other options include climbing walls and pinnacles in parks and other outdoor spaces. These can’t be used during uncooperative weather, though, which is a big reason climbing gyms are preferred by so many people.
