Belay on!

What: Lunch breaks bring to mind soggy sandwiches and communal silverware, but they can also be a great time to get out of the office and get some exercise. Asheville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department will offer low-cost lunchtime “rock” climbing at the Montford Climbing Wall. Participants will push themselves to scale this indoor climbing wall with just the power of their arms and legs. Beginners and advanced climbers are welcome and harness rental and belay services are included in the price.

When: Jan. 10 through Feb. 28 from 10 a.m-1 p.m. If Asheville City or Buncombe County schools are closed for inclement weather the climbing wall will be closed as well

Where: The Montford Climbing Wall, 34 Pearson Drive

Price: $2 for Asheville city residents. $5 for non-residents
