Thrills not spills at a new OKC climbing facility

Oklahoma City has a splashy new climbing facility. Read all about it in this piece by Jack Money:

John Tarkington, co-owner of Threshold Climbing + Fitness & Yoga, admits he is a bit of an adrenaline junkie.

Tarkington gets that rush by climbing, a passion he’s had for nearly a dozen years.

In 2017, he’s sharing his love for the sport by offering climbing enthusiasts in the Oklahoma City area a custom-made facility that offers various types of climbing challenges.

Threshold opened in April, about 15 months after construction began on what must be one of the tallest single-story buildings in town.
