NMARC is going to visit the new location for Stone Age climbing gym. You must be a club member(current dues paid) to take this clinic. This two hour clinic will be taught by qualified instructors at Stone Age gym.

There will be two clinics offered; one will start at 10am and the other at 12:30pm.   (10 am class is now full)

Only 10 students per clinic so RSVP ASAP to get the time you want. If we don't fill up these clinics with current club members and you want to bring a guest who doesn't want to join the club, contact me through Meetup to pay for the class. If you do RSVP and don't show up, NMARC will ask you to reimburse us for your slot in the class.

Expect to learn how to rappel and get the basics of ascending. If you have never rappelled before this is the perfect clinic to learn. Those of you who have rappelled, here's a chance to brush up on your skills. We will be ascending up a wall, traversing along an edge and rappelling down. Stone Age will provide all gear needed. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing that you can cover with a climbing harness. If you want to bring your own gear(harness, ascenders, daisychains, slings, prusik backups) feel free to. 

This class will also certify you if you need rappel/ascension cert for an out-of-state adventure race.

Here's a picture from the new location: After the clinic is over, feel free to stick around and do some bouldering on their walls. They look awesome!

Any questions - let me know!

    Jeff - the pop said that the 10am was full and only slots were available for the 12:30 session. However, the confirm came through as 10:00. I will be driving back from Blanco that morning. Would you move me to the 12:30 session? Thx!!!

    Jeff - my daughters, ages 7 and 10, will be attending climbing camp at Stone Age earlier in the week. Is it possible for them to join me for the 12:30 session?

    Jeff, may I bring my daughters (ages 11 and 14) to the 10a session? I think they would enjoy this class too. And they already have their own climbing harnesses ... :-)

    Jeff, the description says first session is 10am, but the popup asking which time you prefer says first session is 10:30am - I assume 10am is correct?

      Sorry, the pop-up was wrong - the two sessions are at 10 am and 12:30 pm
