For all you beginners that have been wanting to get your crank on, we have a Mesa Rim meetup for you. Rock Climbers of San Diego will be providing the meetup group with FREE belay instruction for this meetup event. (Normally an $8 charge to take the belay class through Mesa Rim)
You'll learn how to properly tie in with a figure 8 knot and belay with a tube-style belay device (ATC). If you've never climbed before, or if you've only ever climbed at a gym like Solid Rock with GriGris and clip on carabiners, this is your chance to learn the way it's really done. Please show up no later than 5:45 to give yourself time to get checked in and squared away with gear as the belay lesson will start at 6pm. Sharp
Mention that you're with the Rock Climbers of San Diego Meetup group and get $2 off a day pass (regularly $17). An RSVP by 5pm on event day is required to receive the discount as they will be checking the RSVP list.
Complete gear rental (shoes, harness, belay device, and chalk bag) is an additional $6.
Experienced climbers are of course welcome to come, partner up, and pull hard on some serious plastic.
Look for Peter or Bill and we can get you partnered up with another climber. We'll usually be stretching out in the open area between the office and bathrooms. You can also talk to the staff and ask for Peter or Bill from the meetup group and they can help you find us.
See you there
Peter and Bill
