Friday Climbing at VE July 19

Join us for an evening of climbing at Vertical Endeavors, Chicago's best climbing gym!

Beginners are welcome. No prior training is required to attend this event. VE staff will show you around and we have plenty of members who can help you get started. Gear rental is available. (If you want belay training, VE offers a great basic safety class on Saturday mornings and Monday nights--for first-time attendees we have discount coupons for this class and for a VE punch card.)

Vertical Endeavors' rate is $15 on weekdays / $17 on weekends (does not include gear).

Belay and lead climbing tests are free. All climbers must be tested by VE staff before belaying. If you have not been belay tested at VE, you can climb with the group but won't be able to belay other climbers. Don't let this stop you from attending. There are lots of auto-belays and members willing to belay you.

Please note: there is a $1 fee to help pay for this helpful website via meetup.com.

    This will be my first time attending a meetup with this group. It has been a while since I have been climbing and I am hoping to get back into it. Looking forward to meeting some fun people to climb with on Friday!

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.
