Midweek Climbing at Brooklyn Boulders (Group Discount)

Who: Joel, Moshe and Kristin will be the hosts of the meetup. Please find them if you need belay partners.

Where: Brooklyn Boulders 575 Degraw St, Brooklyn, NY 11217

When: We usually climb between 6pm and 9pm. There is no strict start time and the organizers try their best to be there around 5pm. If you are new, please feel free to warm up on an easy bouldering wall and find us later if you need a belay partner.

Transportation: By subway: Take the 2, 3, 4, 5, N, Q, R, B, or D to Atlantic-Pacific, transfer to the R for one stop to Union St. Walk 2 blocks north, turn left on Degraw, we are the last door on the right side of the street.

Cost/Discount: get a meetup discount if you sign up with our group which gives you $19 entrance + 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 drinks/food apres-climb.

Notice to beginners: if you have never ever climbed or belayed before you will need to take a class - it takes place every night at 7pm. 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. I usually get to the gym around 6pm, and either boulder at the entrance wall or top-rope in the main room. I post a comment what I'm wearing that day the afternoon of.

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.
