$150/month is the going rate around here too. The place I went had a promo for $99/month no startup fee. My gf and her friend both joined. They each get 2 guest passes a month so I'll take advantage of that. There's also a few random bouldering places that are relatively cheap..$10-15/day.
I currently have issues with both shoulders. At home PT has lessened the pain significantly, but its still there. I plan on getting the one fixed next year (torn labrum). I didn't really have an issue with them while climbing though, mostly it was my forearms and grip. I could only last an hour, then my grip was shit and I'd just fall off immediately.
