It's our regular, indoor climbing/beer biweekly event! We've been getting about 5 new people each time, now we're up to about 20 climbers per event. If you've ever wanted to try rock climbing, this is an ideal chance to try it in a safe environment with experienced climbers. Whether you can barely climb a ladder or you're flashing 5.13's there's something for everyone and we're very supportive of climbers at all levels - no one starts out climbing 5.11s. This time we're meeting at 7pm, so we have a bit more climbing time.
If you are new to climbing, please do arrive at 7 so you can get a quick lesson on tying in correctly, etc. If you're not a member of Mission Cliffs, it's $20 for a day pass (or $100 for a 1 month pass) plus $5 for shoe/harness rentals. After meeting inside we'll show folks how to tie in and belay before we begin our climbing. If your not a regular member you'll have to get a temporary belay card (it's not hard, takes about 20 minutes total). I will be there to show you the ropes (ok, really bad pun, even by my standards).
I've found that Friday night the gym is not very crowded and has a bit more of a relaxed atmosphere. Don't worry if you're new to climbing, all climbers were at some point and my experience has been that climbers will go out of their way to give you tips, be helpful, etc. I'm pretty new to climbing myself, and have been pretty amazed how quickly my progress has been given that I used to be terrified to climb a 6 foot ladder..lol. I'll be there to give you basic tips in terms of proper holds, footwork, and other basic techniques.
For those that are already climbers, hope we can get a good group to really push ourselves and cheer each other on.
After climbing (around 10ish) for those that want we'll find somewhere nearby to grab a bite to eat and have a victory beer.
Hit me up with any questions, otherwise I'll see you Friday night! Do not send me funds, you'll pay for your own day pass Friday night in person.
