Indoor Climbing

If you do not intend to come please do not RSVP "NO". It will create unnecessary emails to the organizer.  

****

Please be respectful to your fellow hikers and register for the trip if you are 100% sure you can make it. Anyone set to going that backs out after RSVP's are closed gets marked as no-show.

****

DO you want….

• to take your Mountain adventures to a new level?

• to be comfortable scrambling over steep terrain?

• to get a good fitness, balance and have fun in the same time?

• to just train you already acquired skills?

Then….

Please join me this Fall and Winter for indoor climbing – each week on Monday or Wednesday (TBD) at:
