Cost/Discount: If you sign up with our group your fee is $19 entrance and includes FREE gear rentals. You can bring your friends and they will get the same discount from us. Just mention "Rock & Ice" at the front desk in order to receive your discount and free rentals.

How to meet us: If you need a belay partner, come find the organizer(s). Come say hi even if you don't need a partner. Sometimes we grab food apres-climb.

Notice to beginners: if you have never ever climbed or belayed before you will need to take a class. There is a nominal fee for this. What to wear - comfortable clothes (think yoga).

Notice to newcomers: You need to pass a belay certification. If you had belayed before, the test takes couple of minutes. If you need a refresher, a test partner or belay partner, please see feel free to see me. Here is the link to BKB:
