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.

    Quite an event tonight! We had new climbers by the score. I guess the warm weather drove people to join us when the thought of A/C was dangled in front of them. And climb we did! We had a good number of top-rope climbers working the walls. Some of the fearless ones hit the lead wall and there was some bouldering to cap off the evening. New people joined our climbers (like a 2004 Casa Marín Lo Abarca Hills Pinot Noir with cedar plank grilled Alaskan Wild King Salmon fillet). After about 13 people went to Local for food and drinks.

    I talked shop with Li nBe n Be (different Be) and found out Be climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro... just like I will. Li is just back from Central America, and off again soon. Be (1st Be, not 2nd Be) really enjoyed her first day climbing and hopes to come back. Can this get any better?

    My climbing, that could have been better. The Orange 5.10 project still needs work as does the Red 5.10. Next time. And if you want a good time... come join us soon!

    We are now deep into the summer celebrations. We have officially kicked off the season, we have blown off illegal fireworks while enjoying a premium American lager (I'm looking at YOU Natty Ice), enjoyed some hot dogs and now.. well now it is time to climb! So get on down and enjoy some climbing and we can go out after for fun and refreshments.
