If the climb to Coit Tower didn't faze you, or the view atop the Golden Gate Bridge didn't leave your heart fluttering, then head to Mission Cliffs for a professionally designed and operated climbing experience that will definitely take your breath away.Mission Cliffs — Photo courtesy of Tom Molanphy
Mission Cliffs isn't just one big, fake wall. The designers have included roofs to haul up on, cracks to grasp and cling to, and long, sustained steep climbs to test you. There's even a "freeclimbing" bouldering area that only requires shoes and a chalk bag. Whatever your age or capability, there's a climbing challenge just right for you that will keep you climbing, climbing and climbing until exhaustion sets in.Mission Cliffs — Photo courtesy of tom Molanphy
If you need a break from climbing, there's a full exerise room, too, plus classes such as cardio boxing, indoor cycling, bootcamp, and seven different kinds of yoga. And, once you're finally ready for a break, step into the sauna and enjoy some peace and quiet, which is provided by the fully soundproof building, a great respite from the noise of the city.
If you're looking for a unique workout that's fit for the whole family and conveniently located right in the middle of the city, head to Mission Cliffs and climb to your heart's delight.
