Friday Night Climb

It's Friday night, so time to unwind!  Let's go climbing first, work up a ravenous appetite, and then grab a late night dinner afterwards (if you're up for it).

6:30pm:

Let's meet in the front area of Brooklyn Boulders (575 Degraw St, Brooklyn, NY).  I'll also post the day before what I'll be wearing, so it'll be easy to find me there.  Brooklyn Boulders has given our meetup the discounted rate of $19 (including all gear).  Just tell them you're with Vedge when you arrive.

9:30pm:

Around 9:30pm, or when people are ready, we'll head over to Ghenet (348 Douglass St, Brooklyn, NY) for a late night Ethiopian dinner.  Ghenet is not totally vegetarian, but they have a great vegan selection, as you can see:

Notice to beginners: if you have never ever climbed or belayed before you will need to take a Learn the Ropes class.  These can be scheduled here.  There is a nominal fee for this. What to wear: comfortable clothes (think yoga).

Notice to newcomers: You need to pass a belay certification test.  If you've belayed before, the test will only take a couple of minutes.  If you need a refresher, a test partner, or belay partner, just let me know.

    Hi all,
    I'm not feeling well today, had to take a sick day, and probably shouldn't climb. I'll leave this meetup, in case any of you still want to climb with a discount, but I won't be able to meet you there, help with belay tests, etc. Very sorry, but hopefully next time!

    I was really looking forward to this, but something's come up that's taking me out of town for the day and I might not make it back in time. If I can, I will still try to join you guys. if not, next time!

    I'm looking forward to this.
    I haven't climbed in more than 10 years, but I used to go a couple times a week in high school. A belay test shouldn't be a problem for me, but if a partner is required I'll need someone from the group to please help me out. I promise I won't drop you!

      No problem, just look for me when you arrive (you can also ask the front desk if you can't find me). I'll help you out, and they'll watch you carefully during the test, so I'm not too worried. See you soon!
