Goodbye, Pinnacle

REI Rock Climbing Pinacle

Several years ago, it was unusual for my family to go shopping at REI without all of us coming home with something new.  But the small climbing wall at the REI store at 1376 E. Woodmen Road called the Pinnacle changed all that. 

Our daughter loved that wall, which was her introduction to rock climbing and she would choose to wait in line for a turn at the wall over any purchase. 

Since then, the Pinnacle has served as a safe, free intro to climbing to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of young (and not so young) climbers.  Now, it’s being torn down as REI remodels. 

Say goodbye to the Pinnacle with a final climb from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.  For more information, call REI at 719-260-1455.

    The only reason I was given for tearing down is that they need more space to sell gear. It is a small store compared to some of the other REI stores.
