Do you like indoor climbing? Check out these 3 places right here in Quebec City for your next challenge.
Indoor climbing has gained much popularity in the past few years, especially in places like Quebec where the winter limits certain seasonal activities. Luckily there are now 3 places where you can do indoor climbing all year around : Delire Escalade (two locations being in Beauport and the other in Ste-Foy) and Roc Gyms (Limoilou).
Delire Escalade has two sites in Quebec City, each with their unique differences. The activity located in Beauport holds the highest climbing wall and offers more than 30 paths for different levels of skills. This makes for an excellent activity between friends who love a challenge or just want to try something new.
This place is adapted for kids older than 7 years old as long as they are supervised by an adult at all times.
Prices are very affordable (adults at 17$ per day while kids are at 12$ per day) and you need to rent the harness and shoes which comes down to only 4$. You can even purchase a weekly pass (which is 29$ per week and it includes the rental of the harness and shoes)
