Walltopia is working hard into our 3rd phase of wall updates. Our first update was a scoop angle on our boulder. Our 2nd update was a brand new wall in our North room to hold 5 new autobelays. Now, they’re installing a crack training area on the instructor wall (South room / West facing wall). They will also be installing fins onto the steel beams to accommodate more climbing surface and no crazy swings! We will have some closures in these areas through the end of this week and into early next week. But in the end, the wait will be worth it!
Save money this semester and get fit. Our Fall semester student membership will be available to start on August 15th! Come in on Monday to purchase your 5 month membership from Aug. 15th to Jan. 15th for $189.95, that’s only $37.99 a month! It’s just as good as getting our annual membership on sale during our Prime8 Festival in October. It doesn’t pro-rate so the sooner you get it the better!
We’re closing early on Saturday, August 27th at 6:30 pm for a fun staff night with our employees. You will find us racing each other at the Albuquerque Indoor Karting facility until late in the night! Make sure to get in a work out early on Saturday. We will resume normal business hours on the following Sunday.
Are you wanting to break through your plateaus but don’t know where to start? Looking for motivation and direction to push through to the next grade? Well, if you’re into bouldering and are ready to get serious then this is the program for you! This 10-week bouldering program will take you through a phase training processes, developing endurance, strength, performance, and then power just in time to peak for the Yank-N-Yard competition in October!
