Fitness Spots: The Cliffs at LIC

It’s 2018 and there is no better time—or place—to get in shape than in Long Island City with rock climbing. Say again? Just hear us out and you just may skip that treadmill for your next workout. Rock climbing builds muscle, increases endurance, reduces stress, and can even boost your brain function. That’s why we love The Cliffs at LIC, an urban rock climbing facility that is located right in Jackson Park LIC’s neighborhood.

The Cliffs at LIC is passionate about climbing and classes are centered around vertical mileage in all styles of climbing, from bouldering to sport, traditional, and ice. Clinics also include training and slacklining. It’s not as intimidating as you may think. Got climbing down? The Cliffs at LIC also offers intermediate and advanced classes.

It’s great for kids too. Those with families will be happy to know that The Cliffs at LIC has a variety of youth programs that you can learn more about here:
