  • Join us for a another awesome outing partnering our Meetup with the new Vertical Rock Outdoor School for an fantastic day of climbing out at Great Falls! This beautiful crag sits right alongside the Potomac River in Great Falls National park with stunning scenery and many different routes of all skill varieties.

    The details:

    Cost: The gym is providing the meetup with a generous discount, so your overall cost for the day will be $50 including food! (Generally, these sorts of guided climbs can run upwards of $100!) What does the money get you? Harness, helmet, and shoe rental as well as personalized attention from a VROS trained guide who will set up all the ropes, run all the safety tests, and belay you to your heart's content. For this round, we will be providing coffee and donuts in the morning, as well as a bag lunch picnic for when we finish climbing. There's an additional fee of $5 per car to enter the park itself.

    Due to the frequency of no-shows, and the fact that we will be meeting at the park instead of the gym, we are asking you to pay the price of the program when you register for the meetup. This will be refundable up until July 24, after which it will only be refunded if the gym cancels the program.

    The timing: Plan on meeting at the park at 9:00 am sharp! VROS staff will be there to meet you in identifiable staff shirts.

    Who can climb: You must be at least 7 years old, but outside of that, no experience necessary! The guides will tailor what routes they set to the skill level of the group so beginner routes for beginners and more interesting challenges for more experienced climbers. Be advised that there may be some rappelling necessary -- a skill that our guides will happily teach you.

    We do need a minimum of 6 climbers (NOT COUNTING ME) to run this event.

Join or login to comment.

    If we don't meet the minimum of 6 by Jul 24, do we get refunds?
