Bring the Outdoor Adventure Indoors at AZ on the Rocks!
Bring on the outdoor adventure indoors at AZ on the Rocks! Put on your shoes, tighten your harness, and climb on! When I arrived I wouldn’t have figured there to be a huge rock wall located in a business park area, but lo and behold there is! It was also pretty easy to find too.
This is the largest indoor rock climbing gym in Arizona with 14,000 square feet of textured climbing terrain roughly 3 stories high, along with 2,800 square feet of bouldering, multiple cracks and even a balance rope.
I love all kinds of sports but I’m quite the novice at rock climbing as I’ve only done it a couple times in my life. At AZ on the Rocks no prior experience is necessary. After a quick orientation video it’s time to get some hands on experience. A staff member will go over the basics on climbing and belaying. Once familiar I was free to roam and try different routes. If you do not have a partner to belay you there are four auto-belays to climb yourself.
Rock climbing is another great way for exercise. And it is for all ages! Climbers frequent the wall as young as 18-months all they way up to 66 years! I was told that men can burn up to 900 calories per hour and for ladies it’s up to 700 calories per hour. Talk about a fun workout! I definitely felt the burn in my fingers, arms and thighs afterward. There are many routes to try ranging from easy to super difficult.
I highly recommend indoor rock climbing at AZ on the Rocks. Not only is it fun for just you but it’s great for the entire family! And at the same time it’s a good workout. Consider checking AZ on the Rocks out on your next trip to Scottsdale.
