    Growing Pains Are Good!

    Whenever I see that a local business is expanding, I’m excited for them. Whatever it is they’re doing is obviously working, and working well! So imagine my delight at learning that High Point Climbing And Fitness was “knocking out a wall”!

    Every time I’ve stopped by High Point, the facility has been filled with young climbers, from little bitties to elementary-aged students like my son, to middle school-aged young people. Upon learning that the main part of the current renovation involves a new area just for children, I knew that I had partnered with good people! The Kidz Zone is scheduled to open in September, and I know one blue-eyed rising 2nd Grader who can’t wait!

    The new area will contain 15 new auto-belays—for a total of 35 in the entire facility—which will surely be a huge draw for those with youngsters. There will also be a bouldering area just for children, as well as a separate entrance off of Chestnut Street. The 3,000sf addition was first announced here, back in March, and included a picture of some of the exciting new child-focused obstacles that will be available. http://highpointclimbing.com/downtown/big-announcement/ Access to the Kidz Zone will be included with all day passes and memberships at no additional charge, which further accents the very best “day pass” there is in Chattanooga!

    If your children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews have never climbed before, the opening of this exciting new child-focused area will be the perfect opportunity to let them try. And if yours are anything like mine, they will beg you to go back many times, which is why I went ahead and got the Family Membership—I highly recommend this.
    In addition to the aforementioned exciting child-friendly updates, both the Women’s and Men’s Locker Rooms are being upgraded, from their already top-notch levels of comfort!

    The Women’s Locker Room is getting new counter tops, mirrors, and lights, and both locker rooms will be getting ceramic tiled floors.

    If you’ve never stopped by and checked out the locker rooms, do yourself a favor and drop in. I promise that you will be blown away, just like I was! Trying to picture the Men’s Locker Room being nicer than it already was is a task, but I’ll be excited to see it!

    And remember, tell them that @ThatOutdoorGuy sent you!
