Weekend Climbing at the Cliffs LIC

  • Jun 8, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Gerald/Ganga will be the host of the meetup. Please find him/her if you need belay partners. 

Where: The Cliffs at LIC, [masked]th Drive, Long Island City, NY

When: We usually climb between 1:00pm and 4:00 pm. There is no strict start time and the organizers tries their best to be there around 1:00pm. We will pair off around 1.15ish and start climbing. 

Subway: E, M trains to 23rd St-Ely Ave (1/2 block from gym) 7, G train to Court Square (2 blocks from gym)* N, Q train to Queens Borough Plaza (10min walk) *Walk to the E & M track for those bad weather days 

Metro North & LIRR: From Grand Central take 7 train 3 stops From Penn Station take Uptown E train to Court Square

Cost/Discount: Get a meetup discount if you sign up with our group which gives you $20 entrance. 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.

How to meet us:  After you checked-in, to the right of the front desk there's a sitting area.If you see a group of people in there that's probably us come and say hi. If you are running late or can't find the group call/message the event host at [*****contact # will be sent out pre-event].  Food/drinks apres-climb at John Brown Smokehouse next door. Even if you only want to have a beer with us, that is also acceptable haha ;)

Notice to beginners: if you have never ever climbed before don't worry we will let you climb and be your slave belayers but keep in mind, this is gonna cost you a beer afterwards :) lol ...i'm only half kidding btw ;)) Unfortunately we can't teach you how to belay or let you try to belay at the gym if you are not belay certified yet. we leave the teaching to the experts. If you wanna  learn how to belay you can take a class there. There is a nominal fee for this. Check out their website for more details.  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 The Cliffs LIC

If you decide to stick with the sport, please peruse our message boards for good deals on climbing shoes and other gear.  Also if you find this group invaluable, please donate and pay your voluntary membership due ;) the Organizers will love you more ;) just kidding.
