If you are looking for a way to stay active but also stay out of southern West Virginia’s brutally cold weather then the Outside-In Climbing Gym, located in Beckley WV on Harper Road, is your answer.
Owner Kevin Traube says “This gym is designed to appeal to a lot of folks with a lot of climbing needs. What I mean by that is on one end of the spectrum we have a very robust climbing community because of the New River Gorge, but we offer a lot to folks who have never climbed before, and have never been more than three feet off of the ground and are looking to have fun and do something together.
You can also find a quiet place to study or work while enjoying a hot coffee or may other drink varieties offered within these four walls.
“Particularly in the Chocolate Moose Coffee Shop there is a lot of studying that goes on there and there is a lot of visitation that goes on there,” said Kevin.
But if we do happen to see a couple of mild winter days then they also offer some outdoor activities along with some cold treats.
“We offer miniature golf, and we have the ice cream parlor. We exist because there are so many families here who are looking to do those sorts of activities,” said Mr. Traube.
So if you are looking to stay active this winter or just need a hot drink and a place to relax, then come to Outside-In Climbing Gym.
Where all you need is a sense of adventure and less than one tank of gas.
