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 7:30pm 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.

    My did the gym get small all of a sudden. The competition is but days away and the route setters were like leaf cutter ants working away to get things ready. With more than 50% of the walls taken down for the Saturday competition, the gym got a lot cozier. We lead folks found the high ground routes while the top rope runners got in their climbs. The bouldering crew had plenty of fun as only one wall was under construction. New people came and joined us. Er came for one her final few times before she departs for a new country to call home.

    Local was the conversation hub with salads, burgers and beer consumed to celebrate life and another successful day of climbing. See you all on Friday.

    Hi Everybody! Just a heads up that the gym is re-setting for the USA Climbing competition. The bad news is there no lead terrain open and about 1/2 top rope terrain is closed. The good new - 50+ new routes to climb after Saturday. The meetup is still ON. Just be aware about 1/2 the gym is closed for setting. Most bouldering terrain remains open.

    See you all soon!

    As we know, Wednesday is the new Friday when you are meeting up with fine folks and climbing. Then when you get to Friday, it is just another Friday in your week. Confused? Good. Come climb and we can explain it with slides and flowcharts. We have a short prepared speech all ready. See you on the plastic. Also remember that in 711 AD Dagobert III was crowned King of the Franks. So that is exciting.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
