Introduction to Indoor Climbing at U of C (w/ group discount)

  • Jan 29, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE TRIP DESCRIPTION BEFORE SIGNING UP! 

• CORA Organizers no longer accept cash at the trailhead! In order to join this event you need to be a CORA 2013 or 2014 member to enjoy the discount. Payments are done online (the blue link on the left. Type the amount of payment in the box. Smart phones don't have this application, so you need to do this on a PC/Mac). 

• This is an introduction to indoor climbing called 'The Rockies Experience." In addition to getting the basics of belaying and rope techniques, at 2-3 hours in length, the added time on this lesson allows us to teach and expand on the fundamentals of climbing and take it one step further yet by introducing bouldering games and then teaching either a movement skill or rappelling. Participants will develop a more complete understanding of climbing in a fun and interactive way.

• The cost for each individual is $15.75 for a minumum of 2 hours. 3 hours cost is $20. Make sure you state your interest in your RSVPs. Note that this is a discounted price offered to CORA 2013/2014 full-paid members! Sign up to the waitlist first. I'll give priorities to the CORA members. 

Once you get to the U of C climbing wall, you are expected to pay your fees individually.  You must also bring the attached waiver with you. Fill it out before coming to the event, and give it to your instructor.

Where: U of C Climbing/Bouldering Wall

Cancellation policy: 4 days hours prior to the event. Keep in mind that this is not a dating service; you are either committed or not. Depending on your attitude, Friday late night cancellations may result in having a "no show" -- unless you come up with a very "juicy" excuse such as UFO abductions, alien invasion, flying boars, Metallica concert, or bad hair.
