Review

This is state-of-the-art indoor climbing. 100 percent bouldering, Vital is the community hub of climbing in Bellingham. A fairly large sized building, considering it's focused on only one type of climbing, Vital has absolutely fantastic walls. They usually have the routes on a 2 or 3 week rotation: just enough time to work on a problem and progress on it, and then have a new focus when they reset the walls. The building facilities are terrific, with a side workout area, free wifi, and a lounge.
Open from 11am - 9pm for the public. But here's the kicker: members have 24 hour access. You can literally climb whenever you want once you join and get the door code. (It's changing often enough to keep the nonmembers from mooching and sneaking in).
Current membership rates: $55 per month, $550 per year. 
Day price: $12
