Vertical Endeavors is an awesome rock gym - as a climber of over 10 years, the gym is a great place to stay strong and meet potential climbing partners. For complete beginners, come climb and we'll make you feel right at home among the old geezers, and teenage mutant spidermonkeys. While VE is an amazing gym (huge, decent route turnover, lots of interesting angles and 2 caves), it's the Minnesota climbing community that really makes this gym. Lotsa great people and everybody is your friend even if you've never met them so come and CLIMB A (plastic) ROCK!!!!!
Pros: good hours, safe, 2 bouldering caves, nice climbers, HUGE, gear shop, machines, parking, connected to Nicros factory
Cons: toprope routes are slow to turnover, a bit pricey, birthday parties, crowded at certain times
