Indoor climbing at Vertical Endeavors will take place from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Monday, Feb. 14.

Work your way to the top! Climbing is a problem solver’s workout with lots of options to build strength, endurance, agility and balance. Beginner to advanced climbers welcome.

The $25 registration fee includes transportation, instruction, equipment rental and admission. Registration deadline is Thursday, Feb. 10.
