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.

    We had quite a bustling night at the gym. One count was more than nine new people joined the hardened veterans on the vertical battlefield. No casualties were reported and many vowed they would regroup after pizza and beer and plan the next move against the elusive foe known only as gravity.

    "We shall overcome!" were the cries as glasses were raised in a salute to the fight. Battle plans were put on hold while a disappearing task force was hastily assembled in the war room to discuss how to split the check.

    Belay tests were given and passed, the intricacies of belay hardware were argued and ropes were manhandled.

    In all, good fun.

    I climbed with several groups tonight. A 5.10 was scaled and lesser objectives were attained in an effort to climb so soon after an intense bouldering session on Monday.

    More climbing on Friday as I gear up for the weekend.

    One girl noted the important fact that flip flops are a necessary item to combat bare feet on gym carpeted floor.

    I think it is a fine day to climb. The sun goes down, the climbers go up and we all go out after.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
