Rock Climbing Adventures: Upper Limits Climbing Gym in Bloomington



So the farm girl in me couldn’t wait to check out a rock climbing gym in silos – what a cool idea.  I went on a (first!) date about a month or so ago with a gentleman who loved rocked climbing.  I figured that this was the perfect opportunity for me to check it out.

The climbing gym is in Bloomington.  I was driving from Champaign and it wasn’t too hard to find on my GPS.  The cost was reasonable – only $18 for a day pass.  My only complaint was that I had tour and a safety lecture at the beginning, which lasted a bit too long since I had an experienced date with me but I suppose in an industry like this it’s better to be safe than sorry!

This was my first time rock climbing so I cannot compare it to other climbing gyms.  My date also told me about a climbing gym in Urbana that I hope to review too.  If you are into rock climbing, I would love to hear about your recommendations.

Overall, I really enjoyed it but it was MUCH harder than anticipated.  It look me a while to trust the ropes that I wasn’t going to hurt myself.  I don’t know if this was the best choice for a first date — I think it would have been better to go with someone I already knew than trying to make first date chit chat while one of us is hanging by a rock… I definitely recommend checking it out.
