Hello and welcome to Climb On! Long Island. We are a group of climbers that meet on a weekly basis at Island Rock (IR) in Plainview. Island Rock (an indoor climbing gym) is a great place to learn basic climbing skills and improve your ability for the real thing. Being outdoor enthusiasts, we do a variety of activities which include indoor and outdoor rock climbing, ice climbing, hiking, camping, and backpacking. Interested in joining our group? No experience is needed and your first visit will include climbing just as soon as you get there. We will belay*! To all newbies looking to join, don't go by our confirmed attendees, we always have a minimum of 10 regular group members at every meeting.
- On your first visit to our group, IR charges $16. This price is for the day pass only. There may be extra fees from the gym if you need to rent a harness and shoes. Both pieces of equipment are REQUIRED. You will not be allowed to climb without a harness, nor will you get up anything more than the most basic walls in your own sneakers.
-On your first visit you will also be given a belay* lesson to become belay certified.* Please find one of the meetup organizers to receive your lesson. The belay lesson will be $5 per person. Versus the $32.50 IR charges, this seems more than fair. Just as well, this money goes to paying for the webpage and running the group; not into the organizers pockets. After passing your belay lesson, you may inform the gym staff that you have been certified, and they will make a mark on your account.
- Every visit to our group here after, IR will charge the day pass fee + rental equipment. There is no fee for joining the group, nor having you join us on a weekly basis.
-Great discounts at the door and on IR memberships. (Memberships 3 months or more,purchased on Wed. nights)
-Comprehensive belay* lessons, to get you belay certified.**
-Amazing tips and techniques to get you to the top.
