Join us for afternoon climbing at Chicago's best 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--first-timers, see Kira for discount coupon for this class and a punch card.)
Vertical Endeavors' weekend rate is $17 (does not include gear). (Please make RSVP changes by 9am for the host to have an accurate list. This helps us keep people paired up for everyone's enjoyment)
Belay and lead tests are free. All climbers must be tested by VE staff before belaying. If you have not done so, 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 RSVP with your info: beginner, TR, lead See you there.
note: the $1 fee is to help pay for this lovely website via meetup.com. Please support your group!
(I'd like to put this meetup on repeat, but will need some guest hosts to do that as I am away about half of weekends in summer and 1/3 the rest of the year--write me if you can take charge of one or two a month)
