Best climbing wall

First Ascent

This 60-foot vertical gym is the tallest in Chicago. Its holds change weekly, so there’s always a new challenge, and to the delight of veteran climbers, “smearing,” or using your feet directly on the wall, is allowed, which gives you more freedom in how you scale it (day pass, $18).

3516 N. Spaulding Ave., firstascentclimbing.com

Celebrate this year’s winners at our annual Best of Chicago event on August 11. Get tickets here.
