Before you set out to conquer the mountain.
Climbers, with support from belayers, set out to ascend a wall at Brooklyn Boulders in Somerville.
Whether you want a stimulating workout or you’re just there to have fun, this is a great place to spend the day. The South Boston indoor climbing and fitness facility features expertly designed boulder problems and climbing routes, as well as a tread wall, a moon board and cardiovascular and strength-training equipment. Although the facility caters to a broad spectrum of expertise, no prior experience is required and newcomers are always welcome. 30 Old Colony Ave., 617.269.2084
Founded by brothers Joe and Ed Hardy, the indoor climbing facility will improve your climbing skills and overall fitness. In addition to its instruction climbing progress program, the Beverly Street destination also offers yoga and fitness classes. 99 Beverly St., 617.227.1087
The impressive, 40,000-square-foot facility offers climbing and
group exercise classes to provide clients with the tools they need to practice bouldering, top-roping, auto-belay and lead climbing.
The space is also known to host private events, concerts and parties, making it more of a cultural center than just a gym. 12A Tyler St., Somerville, 617.623.6700
