Many of us like to climb and enjoy the feeling of hanging off what sometimes feels the edge of the world but the weather, as well as time, and other commitments can scupper our chances of getting out there.
That’s where indoor climbing walls come into their own and although this new indoor bouldering and climbing room in Tennessee is too far for me to travel from Outdoor Revival HQ, I’m sure there’s some of you that will be happy to pay them a visit and try it out.
Tenacity Adventure Fitness has built a unique, state-of-the-art climbing and bouldering room. Located within 20 minutes of popular climbing destinations Foster Falls and Denny Cove, the climbing area at Tenacity was built as an option for climbers in the area on rainy or cold days.
Features of the new climbing room include:
- 40+ newly set boulder problems
- New routes set monthly
- Quality new holds by so ill and atomik, including oversized holds and volumes
- Cave/roof problems
- Slab problems
- Spectrum of difficulty levels from beginner to V-hard
- Custom wall graffiti art by the artist Seven of Chattanooga
The rock climbing room at Tenacity costs only $5 per climber per day. Climbers should bring their own shoes and chalk, although some of the problems can be climbed without either.
According to Tenacity owner Micah Sparacio, “From the beginning, the purpose of Tenacity has been to bring opportunities and fun activities you’d expect to find in the city to rural Grundy County, TN. This climbing wall is an extension of that vision and also an attempt to provide a service to the climbing and outdoor adventure community.”
To celebrate the launch of the climbing wall, Tenacity will be hosting a Climbing Club for a fun time of bouldering and new route setting on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 9am-Noon. New climbers are encouraged to join in and learn new climbing techniques.
In addition to being within 15 minutes of Foster Falls, Tenacity Adventure Fitness of Tracy City is less than 2 minutes from The Fiery Gizzard Trail head and five minutes from the beautiful Grundy Lakes area. With the addition of the Monteagle to Tracy City section of the Mountain Goat Trail, lots of beautiful hiking spots, waterfalls, caves and swimming holes, the area is quickly becoming a great destination for outdoor adventure enthusiasts.
Tenacity Adventure Fitness (http:///www.tenacity.net) is a 13,000 square foot family gym featuring trampolines, cargo nets, foam pits, a soft Kids PlayZone area, bounce houses, martial arts, weight lifting machines and more. It is located about 40 minutes from Chattanooga, TN, 25 minutes from Manchester, TN, 25 minutes from Winchester, TN and 1.25 hours from Nashville, TN.
