Over the past ten years, rock climbing has emerged as a very popular extreme sport and a new form of exercise for all of our outdoor fans. With the popularity of this sport also came the opening of rock gyms all over the country. For those of you who have a passion for this lifestyle, there are three rock climbing gyms nearby which can become your sanctuary.
The Rock Gym in Rexburg is shared with a gymnastics studio, so when you walk in and see all of the gymnastic equipment, don’t worry. You are in the right place. This climbing gym has a little for both styles of climbers. They have a wall that is dedicated to climbers who climb with a harness and a wall for those who boulder. This gym also offers classes for first-time climbers or those looking to become better.
The pricing is affordable and often there are specials to watch out for.
