    review rating 5  This place is amazing! First let me start by saying they got me a good discount for being a veteran and I really appreciate that. I got a membership at vertical endevers because I was looking to get into shape but wasn't looking for a gym membership lifting boring weights. This place is everything I hoped it would be, lots of walls to climb from beginner to expert, a great workout, above and beyond staff who let me use their rental equiptment free of charge until I could figure out what equipment I was going to buy for myself. Sean even took the time to help me learn some of the simple things I was struggling with when it came to belaying. Again absolutely worth checking out, weather your looking to get in shape like me, or just want fun for the family for a day, you would be missing out to not give it a try!

    review rating 5  A great place to go climbing! They offer a good selection of walls for variety of climbing routes. They have auto-belay systems, so one does not need a partner for climbing. Staff is helpful and professional. I go there climbing nearly weekly. 🙂
