Friends in High Places at City Climb Gym!

Written by Amber DelPrete

Have you been wanting to try indoor climbing? City Climb in New Haven is a gem worth a try!

155292_10200629240877060_252807186_nThis past weekend I held a 30th Birthday Party for my boyfriend at City Climb Gym in New Haven.  Eleven of our closest friends and one of the cutest children I know, harnessed up and hit the walls for two jam-packed hours of climbing!

The staff was amazing.  We are a rowdy group with a variety of skill levels, so the staff gave a great intro and we were off!  For birthday parties, the gym supplies a belayer (someone to work the rope for the climber), shoes, harness, and the birthday boy even gets a shirt!  It’s the perfect winter activity.

I would highly recommend City Climb Gym.  All ages and abilities are welcome- we experienced that first-hand.  The gym is well-staffed, clean, and even offers activities like a slack-rope (basically a tight-rope), a “bouldering” room, and other specialty classes such as yoga for climbers.  They even offer a belay course for those wishing to get certified!

I know we will definitely be back!
