520 20th St., Oakland, CA
This is another weekly climbing meetup intended for experienced climbers, like the Tuesday night climb at Mission Cliffs, but at Great Western Power Company in Oakland on Thursday. We have a number of folks who live in the East Bay and I know some have wanted to check out GWPC rather than the Berkeley gym. GWPC has a smaller climbing area than Mission Cliffs, but it is also a gym that is well-balanced with several vertical routes as well as some that are past vertical. We'll still do our 2-3X per month Friday nights which are open to beginners, but Tuesday or Thursday night climbs are not open to new climbers. Our Tuesday/Thursday night events are intended for regular climbers who are serious about working hard and increasing their climbing skills. You must be be self-sufficient in terms of knowing how to tie in properly, belay properly, etc. We ask that those coming to Tuesday/Thursday night climbing sessions be comfortable climbing 5.10a at the very minimum as we really won't be spending any time on routes that are rated under 5.10.
If you're not a member of GWPC/the Touchstone gyms, it's $20 for a day pass (or $100 for a 1 month pass). It's also an extra $5 to rent climbing shoes, harness, and belay device if you do not have these essential items. We'll meet @ 7pm, and climb until we're done - likely going close to closing at 11pm. Focus will be on pushing ourselves and each other to climb hard and try new, harder routes.
Hit me up with any questions, otherwise I'll see you Thursday nights! Members may bring 1 guest, but the guest needs to be an experienced climber as well.
