You've never been one to give up when things get a little rocky -- and scaling a wall of stones is about as rocky as it gets. Put that perseverance to good use at Triangle Rock Club: Pay $35 (regularly $93) for a two-hour introduction to rock climbing class and a two-week pass for unlimited access to this facility. Or, spend $65 (regularly $186) for the same package for two people.
Under the guidance of certified instructors, you'll learn about the different types of climbing, basic concepts and practices, safety, proper belaying techniques, correct harness use, and more. Located in Morrisville, this facility boasts 9,000 square feet of state-of-the-art Eldorado climbing walls, including 60-plus climbing stations composed of more than 100 ever-changing routes. To unwind after your ascent, retreat to the climber's lounge that's outfitted with HDTV and Wi-Fi -- looks like diligence has some sweet rewards.
