Not quite ready for the Rockies? At this rock-climbing gym, you don’t have to be ready—just willing. Come on a Tuesday night, when it’s open to the public (for a $10-per-person fee), and you’ll get a vertical workout for both your body and your brain as you climb 15-foot walls in a 1,500 square-foot space designed with routes to create more than 100 obstacles. If you enjoy the experience enough to become a member, the perks are as countless as the mountain peaks you’ll eventually tackle: 24/7 access to the club includes instruction and the opportunity to engage with a keen built-in community.
