A good caramel latte and some rock climbing? At the Chocolate Moose Coffee Shop in Beckley, it is possible !

The staff is trained to serve any kind of customer, whether they are looking for a delicious coffee or looking to climb in the “Outside-In” Climbing Gym. Barista David Stone sometimes has to take off his apron to harness up and spot guests on the wall.

“Working here you’re constantly hopping back and forth between jobs,” Stone said. “Which is fun because you always get to keep it fresh and have new elements of the job. “

The establishment even offers a mini golf course, keeping Stone busy throughout his shift while tending to customers that want to play put put, want coffee, or want to climb, like myself. 

“We have various different obstacle courses ropes and different ways to kind of stay in shape and train your body in different ways up on the wall. ” 

After being harnessed up with Stone spotting my rope from the bottom, I began the climb on one of their many courses, and somehow did not slip before getting to ring the finish bell at the top. 

 Whether its for a date, or a family outing, you don’t have to leave the city of beckley to get a solid climbing experience and a good coffee.
