Mountains provide Earth with natural eye candy, entertainment for adrenaline junkies, and landmarks for lost UFOs to use as navigation tools so they dont have to ask for directions at gas stations. Climb up the next best thing to a space compass with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a day-long guided climbing trip with Ragged Mountain Guides (up to a $250 value). Climbers meet at Starbucks on New Britain Avenue in Plainville before departing for Ragged Mountain in Southington.
Under the highly experienced and American Mountain Guides Association-certified professional instructor Matt Shove, Ragged Mountain Guides leads climbers of all skill levels through the peaks and valleys of the Traprock region, including the Shawangunk Mountains, Mount Washington Valley, Adirondack Park, and the Catskills. Full-day tours last between six to eight hours, beginning with careful instruction on technique, equipment, and navigation. Afterward, prospective cliff-scalers head out to Ragged Mountain to begin the guided climb one-on-one with the instructor, unless a nosy mountain goat pays for a lift.
Trek up Rattlesnake, Wolf Rock, White Stone Cliff, and numerous other cliffs near Ragged Mountain. Upon arrival at the rock's apex, climbers can take in expansive views of Mother Nature's handiwork while admiring their newly toned muscles and freshly acquired mountain-manipulating knowledge.
