Wednesday Night Climbing

Welcome to The Fairfield Rock Climbing Group!

You're on the ground floor of what will become Fairfield County's largest organized group of climbers. Our number 1 goal: Unite the southern Connecticut climbing scene, help new climbers get started in a non-intimidating environment, and coordinate fun climbing opportunities for the community - indoors and out.

The Plan:

We'll all Meetup at 7pm near the front desk  to meet the crew, gear up and get climbing! We'll officially wrap up around 9:30pm then head over to Colony Pizza on the post road in Fairfield for food/drinks.

Cost: It's free to participate with the group but regular climbing gym rates apply. Carabiner's has been good enough to offer FIRST TIME VISITORS of FRC Meetup a special introductory rate.

First Time Visitor Deal: $10 day pass  |  $15 day pass (equipment included)

Belay Certification

Top rope climbing does require certification at any indoor climbing facility.  If you're already certified at Carabiners, you're all set!  If you know how to belay but this is your first time climbing at Carabiners you'll be asked to complete a simple belay test.  Arrive a few minutes early if possible to take your free belay test.


First Time Climbers

Top roped indoor climbing does require belay certification but don't let that scare you off!  No experience is required to participate with us on your first visit.  If you have fun with the group and would like to continue to RSVP for our meetups, we suggest scheduling a Belay Course with the staff at Carabiners.  Once completed, you'll be certified to belay on your own and take turns belaying members of our group.  Its simple, super fun, and makes you a contributing member of our climbing group.

    The gym was certainly jumping on Wednesday. We had great numbers of meetup folk (more than 10) with new people and old people mingling and mixing it up. The lead wall had at least five groups going at once. People were climbing, bouldering and making quite a ruckus. For a while the music stopped and the gym was just the hum of hard work and good cheer. Someone noted that the gym was very quiet without music, to which I replied "when we are outside, there is no music."

    Groups of people went to Colony, but I had to depart attend to important things of which I cannot recall. The failure to recall was both what they were and what made them important.

    I gave up trying the 5.10+ and concentrated on the orange 5.10 on the other side of the lead wall. I inchwormed my way up the route and believe I can clean climb that in a few tries. The 5.9 fell again, so we can tick that off the list.

    I talked to important people about setting a route on the blank slab of wall. Excitement!

    The biggest climbing day of the week. It's a fiesta! We will see who is hot, who is not, and who is daring to break the rules.

    The 5.10+ needs to be lead again and the 5.9+ on the prow will scare me silly. So much climbing, so much time because we can always try again. See you at the gym!
