I have to revise this week's meetup due to a schedule conflict. Thanks.
Meet, greet and climb with your feet (and legs and arms and hands.... you get the idea).
• MUST know how to belay!!! Class offered weekly at both Calgary Climbing Center and Stronghold climbing gym. Otherwise, all levels are welcomed to join.
Please RVSP if you plan to attend this meetup, so that other attendees could keep an eye open for you in the unlikely and rare event that the organizer cannot make the meetup at the last minute.
Notes about our meetups:
If you have trouble finding me (Leo), please check with the front desk. The staffs are fairly good at tracking me down inside the gym.
Our meet-ups are fairly informal. Usually, people just come in, grab a partner and start climbing until they drop (usually around 8:30 to 9:00 pm). While I don’t necessary spend time with everyone or make formal introductions, I do try to ensure everyone has a partner to climb with.
A group of 2-3 climbers with similar climbing experience/ability tend to work best, and we tend to break into groups this way. I am happy to climb with just about anybody though.
Feel free to talk to me if you can't find a partner, your partner needs to leave early, or have questions/concerns.
While we encourage everyone to push her limit, please be considerate and don't hang on the wall for hours on end. You and your partner(s) should spend about the same time climbing and belaying each other. If you really want to conquer a route, come back to it at your next turn.
I had a hard time finding people to go climbing with all the time and I had a feeling some others might too. If you are looking for a climbing partner, this group is for you. It's for all different levels. Beginners are welcome.
All members attending MUST have knowledge of all basic skills to top-rope climb and belay! Most climbing centres offer weekly beginner course for this.
This group is free and so are the meeting (unless otherwise noted). There is a climbing fee at most climbing centre (unless you are a member). If you do not have gear, you can rent it at most centres.
