Indoor Rock Climbing and Beer Tasting - SOLD OUT

  • January 12, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Cost: $50 for climbing and beer tasting, additional $6 for climbing shoe rental. If you're a member at Go Vertical and want to attend the event, please let us know.

Skill Level: 4. This event is geared toward members of all skill levels, and beer tasting is easy!

Description: Rock climbing is among my favorite sports of all time. It's a full body workout that tests your endurance, strength, and mental toughness. And there's nothing like spending hours gripping, pulling, grunting and sweating your way up a climbing wall, then soothing tired hands on a cold glass of beer. It's the best recipe for a great day of exercise and the perfect recovery!

We'll meet at Go Vertical for an indoor rock climbing party geared toward climbers of all skill levels. If you've never climbed before, or only tried once or twice, this is a perfect way to try it out! There's no previous knowledge of climbing required. Go Vertical's expert belayers will help us for two hours. We'll climb all over the gym on all sorts of routes.

After we've exhausted ourselves and gotten the adrenaline pumping, we'll walk down the block to the Yards Brewery to taste some of the best beer in Philadelphia. We'll be trying their core ales, then touring the brewery as part of a private TerraMar-only tour!

Price Includes: 2 hours of climbing with a belayer, harness rental, and beer tasting at Yards. Climbing shoes can be rented for an extra $6.

Carpool: We won't have a carpool for this event, as it's local. Public transportation via the Market-Frankford line Spring Garden station is the best route if you do not have a car or bike.

What to Bring: For the climbing portion, bring clothes you can move easily in, including pants/capris that cover your knees. A water bottle, snacks and your sense of adventure are great additions, too! Yards does have a small menu available if you're hungry at the beer tasting.

Payment: The first 15 who get payments in for this event get to attend! Meetup RSVPs don't guarantee you a spot.

Please follow link to register with Terra Mar adventures and make payment.

    Though I couldn't attend the beer tasting, it was an amazing friendly group. Can't wait till the next meet up that I can attend.

    Someone can have my spot since I can't go anymore. Will I be able to get a refund?

    January 12, 2013

    • Carl E.

      We cannot do refunds. I had to pay for the spot.

    Hey Maryse: the start time is 11AM or 12PM... the other website states it's from 11:00 - 2:00. My guest will probably be working 'till 11 and if I couldn't make it 'till 12 noon would that be a problem?

    January 10, 2013

    • maryse

      Hey Nathan, i just confirmed it is for 11. but its no prob lem if you get there by 12. We will see you then

      January 11, 2013

    Hi Maryse. I RSVP'd yes on the meetup site, but I am on the waiting list at the Terra Mar site. I emailed Carl to see if I can still in for this event but have not heard back...do you know anything more about whether I can get confirmed for this event tomorrow?

    • Sara

      If someone wants my spot and I can get a full refund, you can have it. I'm not feeling that well, so it would prob. be better if I didn't go

  • Wendy

    Just wondering where I can park my car on Saturday. Can someone let me know? Thanks!

    January 10, 2013

    • maryse

      There is parking at Go Vertical.

      January 10, 2013

  • Amanda S.

    I just added myself to the wait list. Keeping fingers crossed :) If I'm at to go how will I be contacted?

    Thanks for posting the video Matthew! I have never climbed before and so excited to try it!

    If you're new to climbing and want to get an idea of what it's like; here's a short film I shot with a few friends at Philly Rock Gym in Oaks:

    When looking at the Go Vertical website, the "Getting Started" training prepares you for Go Vertical's Top-Roping Certification. My boyfriend is looking to get into this as a hobby. Is the class offered through Terra Mar the same as the "Getting Started" class at Go Vertical?

    December 31, 2012

    • Carl E.

      No. We are doing a more experience based event. It does not get into the techniques. That is a class. Ours is supervised climbing.

      January 1, 2013

  • Amanda S.

    I've never done climbing but really want to learn. Is this for beginners?

    December 26, 2012

    • maryse

      Hey Amanda, all levels are welcomed.

      December 26, 2012

  • Ahmad r.

    Wow, i guess i missed this one. I see that you have 15 rsvp but did they all pay!. If not maybe i can still squeeze myself in. Please let me know! Thanks

    December 16, 2012

    • maryse

      Ahmad, it is not filled. Follow the terra mar link for payment and you will have a spot

      December 16, 2012

    • Ahmad r.

      Thank you Maryse, It's done. I don't drink so i chose under 21 although i'm 25 , just to let you know.

      December 16, 2012

  • Nathan M.

    Hello: I wanted to make sure I was put down for the event... I already paid for two spots but my name isn't showing up on the bar to the right-hand side of this post.

    December 4, 2012

    • Nathan M.

      Also question about the funding. I already paid the $50.00 per/person price. Does that mean I will be refunded the difference? I see it now says it's $30.00 per person

      December 10, 2012

    • Carl E.

      We can credit you for the reduction since you will not be able to attend the beer tasting.

      December 15, 2012

  • Nathan M.

    I would love to start attending events like this when I can... Is the event still on for Jan 12?

    November 25, 2012

    • Carl E.

      She can certainly come rock climbing. I do not believe she will be allowed to attend the beer tasting though, even if she does not drink.

      December 1, 2012

    • Nathan M.

      Then I won't either for the beer tasting... is there any discount for that?

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.
