About Wells St. Athletic Club:

One of the best climbing surfaces of any gym in Chicago; there is a crack and the wall itself is highly featured, with holds added, but a good challenge is to climb the wall without them. It's small, but not claustrophobic. The wall is inside the gym; you can buy a full membership or just $10 or $20 day pass. It's the basic gym policy: pass the certification test, climb whenever you get a pass or membership. There are certain supervised times, but they also have auto-belays set up if youre alone. Free equipment and some pretty cheap and interesting classes.
