We want exercise that teaches us something new- that challenges the mind and the body.
We believe that exercise should make people strong, dynamic, flexible, and able to overcome obstacles in the real world. Read more
They are my home gym and could not be more welcoming, enthusiastic or encouraging. Vital is a, well, vital part of my life!
The Vital climbing gyms all have their own taste and variations of climbing because of different route setters. All are friendly staff and are willing to help give beta out when needed and are ready to hang out with you. High quality gym experience with good routes and staff make for a gym we like to frequent. These gyms are bouldering specific so most of the information and help you get will be boulder related but a lot of the staff to sport and trad as well and can help with questions. Lots of people meet at the gyms and end up climbing outside together from connections made climbing in the gym.
Wouldn't be as strong of a climber if it were not for this place! Great people that climb there, and all of the staff is super friendly. Started climbing 2 years ago and am in the best shape of my life. largely do to my training and encouragement from vital.
I absolutely love this place! My sister started taking me a couple months back and it was one of the coolest places I've ever been. You can climb, hangout, do homework, train. Everyone is so welcoming and will help you if you need it. Plus once you're a member you get 24 hour access!Original recommendation
I would actually say this place is life-changing. I was petrified of heights before I came here to climb one rainy day the hubs and I couldn't go kayaking or hiking and we've been coming at least three days a week ever since. The staff is amazing, the 24-hour access rocks, and the competition last weekend was ridiculously fun. If you're going to try it out, please rent the shoes!!! They make such a difference that I've now invested in two pairs of my own -- one flat approach, one aggressive. Also, while many of the truly outstanding climbers here are the climbing team kids, if you're going to bring yours please keep an eye on them so they don't get kicked, landed on, etc.Original recommendation
Awesome gym, really nice change of pace as far as route setting goes. Their setters are very creative and the climbs are dynamic and challenging. The community aspect is awesome! Everyone is very friendly and encouraging. Happy to be a new member!Original recommendation
I was working on an assignment out here when I decided to go rock climbing. I tried the one day pass for $10. The guy at the front was really nice. He gave me a quick tour of everything before I got started. He also helped me climb by giving me tips/suggestions. I really enjoyed coming here. This spot is well kept, and the ambiance is awesome.Original recommendation
