A place for indoor climbing/bouldering and outdoor rock, ice, climbers of all levels to gather and meet like-minded individuals. If you're looking for climbing partners, or want a regular time to climb, this is the group for you. If you are new to climbing you will need some training to climb at most of our events with the exception of our bouldering events. If you already have the training but need a belay test but don't have a partner, one of us can step in and help out, just sign up for an event and let us know you need a belay partner for your test.
Anyone joining our group is expected to pay the $10 annual membership within two weeks of joining, or they will be removed from the group.
