The gym, titled Climb Upstate, includes 6,200 square feet of climbing space, a 1,500-square-foot fitness center, and a party area with a lounge, 42-inch flat-screen TV and a ping-pong table. The gym is also equipped with plethora of safety features, such as ropes and thick, padded flooring.

Crane and Hodge also book trips periodically for those who wish to take their climbing outdoors. Destinations visited so far include Crowders Mountain and Rumbling Bald in North Carolina, Curahee Mountain in Georgia and Stone Fort in Tennessee.
