Finally a gym is opening near me and I just saw the price...$630 for a year or $62 a month with a $50 initiation fee. Seems kind of steep for any kind of gym let alone a climbing gym that has 30' walls. They better give one hell of a foot massage, even better than Jules the foot f%cking Master. http://topoutclimbing.com/
Climbing gyms, by default, have a much higher overhead than typical gyms. Expect to pay more. 62 sounds good for a 11,500 sq. ft. facility. If yoga is included, then it's a steal as most Yoga memberships start at over $100.
Only the uncool climb outside...skip the ants, rattlesnakes and people hating falcons.
Good looking, cool people climb in comfortable gyms with handy bathrooms and cool (way cool!) piped-in music.
Pay whatever the gyms need to keep your bad a$$ 5.12d++ self comfy and safe.
68$ here at Sacramento Pipeworks. It's alot but they have pretty big walls, a nice bouldering area, a good gym and a ton of difforent classes from spin to yoga to ju-jitsu. I also heard rumor that they are going to put in a pool with a deep water soloing wall above it... which would help out quite a bit with stomaching the steep cost.
$300/yr in the gym I use in Riverside. That's with a pre-paid year, and buying the membership during their annual birthday sale.
I think if you went monthly plan, it would be ~$45 with an autobilling scheme. It is on the small side for a modern gym, and while there are roped climbs in there, the focus is more on bouldering.
The other gym in Riverside is substantially more expensive (and larger), but their membership also includes 3 gym in total (which is kind of "so what" unless you live midway between a couple of them). I think they run about $650/yr for an annual.
