To beat the summer heat, some people barricade themselves inside the house and stand motionless in front of the air conditioner vent. Today's offer gives you a good reason to get out and get physical, while steering clear of the sun's wrath. Pay $129 for a 10-Visit punch card with equipment rental to MetroRock Rock Climbing Centers, a $262 value.
Hone your climbing skills and ascend new heights at one of MetroRock's state-of-the-art facilities featuring professionally-designed climbing structures and bouldering areas - for those of us who like to stay closer to the ground. With a comprehensive variety of routes, climbers of all levels can show off their mad mountaineering skills, not to mention their midair victory dances upon reaching the tippity top. Rock Climbing is not only great for character building, but it's a super strength-training workout too. And unlike weightlifting or stationary cycling, rock-climbing really takes you places.
Besides free-climbing, MetroRock also offers expert instruction for all levels of climbers - from beginner to boulder-bashing. To climb on ropes you must have Toprope or Lead Belaying certification (which is not included in this offer). Please contact either MetroRock location for information on how to get your certification.
