Rock Climbing: Basic Skills Class - Cinco de Mayo Style

  • May 5, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Always wanted to learn how to climb? Get certified to belay, learn the safety systems of belaying, basic knot tying, and basic climbing movement in this hands-on class. Climbing is great exercise, social and totally a lot of fun!

This course is designed for people with little or no climbing experience, this course teaches the skills needed to climb independently at any rock climbing facility. Or, if you need a refresher. Once we go through the skills - then we go and climb!! All equipment is included!

In honor of Cinco de Mayo... feel free to bring in your own salsa!  Sportrock will provide the chips.  And, for those that are interested, we'll head out afterwards to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a few margaritas!

DATE: 7:00pm-9:00pm. 

COST: $31/pp (non-refundable).  Must be paid to RSVP via Amazon payments! You can still join in for regular climbing if you are certified to belay. Must be able to pass belay test! (Just put a comment up if you are joining us and already passed your belay test)


 *Parking at Sportrock can be difficult on busy days so make sure to give yourself enough time to find alternate partking. Or, the even is also metro accessible from Van Dorn Metro Station. If you can offer a ride - please do so!

CARPOOL: Don’t forget if you want a ride or are willing to offer a ride – be a friend to the environment, save money, and make friends by just posting a message!!



- Have a ride: Please post where you are coming from, what time, and how many spots you have.



- Need a ride: Post that you need a ride and contact any offers via e-mail for those that are offering rides.

    My ass has become large from non-stop computer work. Can heavy people do this beginners climb? Looking for a fun way to get fit.

    You should take it the next time you come in. However, you can climb for the rest of the night. I climb every Monday and Wednesday night so feel free to give me a call and come climbing with us. [masked]

    Will we get to take the belay test then? Or is there a wait period? I rock-climbed once so I did the steps for belaying but I never took the test/need a refresher before I do.
