Christian put together an individualized training program specifically for our climb. He did a wonderful job! He was flexible with times, very knowledgeable and also a lot of fun. Thank you Christian (and Cody)!
This was a fun place to climb! Very good variety of route difficulties and great staff!
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!
I had a really fun time here. Staff was friendly and the price was fair.
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. 🙂

About me: I am from the Iron Range. I have a Bachelor of Science in Engineering. I enjoy maintaining an active lifestyle. I want to pursue a life of self fulfillment where I can blur the lines between work and play, to hold a high moral standard of only bringing utility and never harm to another individual, to think and act in an objective manner and constantly improve myself and those around me.

Hometown: Hibbing MN

What I love about climbing: Climbing is such a diverse activity! Ice, rock, sport, trad, mixed, aid, bouldering and so on. I can “nerd out” on gear and systems for extended periods of time. I love that climbing is a perfect excuse to travel and to be outside. I love that its a game of continuous improvement, looking for the smallest adjustment in order to have a gain in efficiency. Above all I love sharing this activity with friends and clients. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the twinkle in the eye of a new climber.
