If you have ever wanted to try your hand at rock-climbing without the danger of falling off a cliff, here is your chance! We are going to meet up at one the best places in LA for beginners to learn the basics and have fun. Here is a description of Hanger 18 in their words:
“Featuring over 12,000 square feet of textured climbing terrain, two massive-free-standing bouldering areas, lead climbing, crack climbs, a huge training section, and the same world-class setting that Hangar 18 has made itself so well-known for, Hangar 18 South Bay L.A. (formerly Beach City Rock) is hands-down the best indoor climbing in the greater Los Angeles area. With a wide variety of custom party packages, classes, and the most inexpensive membership prices of any gym in the region, Hangar 18 is a fantastic place for anything from a fun afternoon of climbing to a unique and unforgettable birthday party, and a great place to get a fantastic workout as well. Located just a few miles south of LAX, Hangar 18 is just a short drive away from either the beach or the city, so head on over to Hangar 18 and join us for an adventure that you won't soon forget.”
We will start off with a Belay class where Hanger 18 staff will teach you everything from knot tying to rope management, and supervise as you keep each other safe. Once the lesson has concluded, you will be self-sufficient, and are welcome to stay and continue as long as you want. So come on out and have fun. The fee is $18 for the class and all day access to the rock walls (they close at 8pm if you want to stay all day!). You don’t have to pay until you get there, but it will be good to know how many people are coming as they will provide additional staff based on the size of the group. Let me know if you have any questions!
