Climb@Blue Ridge

Climb@Blue Ridge Indoor Rock Climbing

Each year, on my birthday, I try something new.  It’s my way of reminding myself that leaving one’s comfort zone is a good thing and should be practiced regularly.  So, Friday afternoon found me clumsily scaling the walls of Climb@Blue Ridge, an indoor rock climbing facility located in Taylors.

Striking a pose with my "fierce" face.

Nervous about climbing and belaying for the first time, I was very pleased with the patient instruction of Barry Gwynn, one of the owners of Climb@Blue Ridge.  From assisting me with putting the harness on correctly to instructing me on proper belay techniques so that my husband did not plunge to the ground whilst climbing, Barry was extremely helpful and informative.  The climbing routes were clearly labeled and rated according to difficulty which enabled me to pick a route that I was capable of climbing to the top of the wall.

Climb@Blue Ridge offers climbing clinics, group rates, and memberships as well as great rates on all-inclusive climbing and bouldering.  Want to go climbing but don’t have the gear?  No problem.  Climb@Blue Ridge will rent shoes, a harness, and chalk to you for only $3.  What Climb@Blue Ridge does is make indoor rock climbing enjoyable yet challenging for the novice as well as the more experienced climber.  Rock climbing at Climb@Blue Ridge was a fantastic way to spend my birthday afternoon and I will definitely be a repeat climber.

Climb@Blue Ridge is located at 301 Bulls Road, Taylors, SC 29687
