Friday Evening Climbing at VE September 20

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.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
