Inner Peaks at South End is the newer location and has been open for two and a half years. It has both 25 and 40-foot-tall rope walls. There’s also a fitness room for non-climbing specific workouts. Taller rock walls mean a bigger thirst, and the South End locale means that a plethora of food and drink options are within reach for your post-workout pleasure.
“Climbing challenges you to overcome fears, solve problems, build trust and grow body awareness.”
“Climbing challenges you to overcome fears, solve problems, build trust and grow body awareness,” says Jordan Ernestes, Marketing and Events Manager for Inner Peaks. “Indoor climbing provides an opportunity to develop all of these skills in a more accessible way, to get started without prior experience, to train and develop existing climbing skills, to meet new people and become a part of a supportive community!”
Climbing is a challenging workout that emphasizes strength, flexibility, endurance and quick thinking. If you’re looking to integrate a different type of fitness into your lifestyle, climbing is one of the most effective ways of attaining it. Plus, the accomplishment you feel from making it to the top of a challenging face is a reward in itself.
The comradery you build with fellow climbers is something that Inner Peaks tries to support. To that end, they’ve made a concerted effort to provide its members with opportunities to build relationships and spend days enjoying the area as well as climbing.
“We have partnerships with some local businesses that offer discounts to Inner Peaks members, such as Pint Central, Legion Brewing, Sauceman’s, Farmer’s First Coffee, and more,” says Ernestes.
Your body and mind will thank you for how much care it’s being provided, from thorough workouts to good meals with friends. A shared passion for climbing and embracing difficulty will give you excellent goals and days filled with adrenaline, endorphins and dopamine. Also, there’s those yummy food and drinks, if you want.
