Of course there are plenty of great things to do in San Diego that will get you outside soaking up the sun, but sometimes it’s also nice to be indoors, in air conditioning and away from the UV rays. If this is the case and you want to still get a workout without being inside, indoor rock climbing could be right up your alley.
Indoor rock climbing is perfect for people of all ages and experience levels. If you’ve never climbed before, there are plenty of instructors on hand to give you advice and make sure you are completely safe during your climb as well as on your way back down. For some this is the best way to train before heading out to the desert or mountains and climbing on their own, while for others this is a much closer option that saves gas and exposure to the sometimes harsh weather of those areas. Spend some time indoors, climbing rock walls and enjoying one of the best things to do in San Diego this weekend.
Vertical Hold has three locations throughout the county, in Poway, San Marcos, and near downtown. The gym offers lead climbing, top roping, auto belays, bouldering, slacklining, general fitness, and even yoga. This is much more than just a place to climb rocks indoors, you can also use it to replace your regular gym membership. Of course, if you just want to stop in for a one-time visit, that’s available too.
