Climbing gyms offer people of all ages and sizes an opportunity to challenge themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. Time on the wall demands body strength and awareness, problem-solving skills and creative thinking from those in the harness. It's a great time for blowing off steam and reconnecting with yourself.

The Idaho-based climbing gyms that made this list bolster great reviews and outstanding facilities. Each organization offers unique staff and endless opportunities to challenge the total body and mind. Idaho is amazing for outdoor climbing, and the same is true of its indoor climbing community. Check out the four gyms below that offer an array of programs that include yoga, group fitness, summer camps, and high-quality instruction.

PS, We haven't personally climbed the walls at Edge Climbing Gym or Teton Rock Gym, but we've heard great things about them from friends who have!
