Climbing at Brooklyn Boulders

I just stepped up as lead organizer and I'm bringing this group back. Partially because my mom told me I'm gaining weight. I don't know about you guys, but I haven't been to a gym in 5 years and my New Year's resolution is to continue this impressive streak, ideally without ending up morbidly obese. Our first meetup this year will be rock climbing, but let me know what else you guys want to do.

Here's the plan: let's go to BK Boulders and band together in our futile struggle to climb anything harder than a Level 1. Unless you know what you're doing, in which case please help us because WHAT IS THE SECRET!? Backup plan if we fail: mess around on the slackwire (looks something like http://homepage.ntlworld.com/unicycle/slack1.JPG)

Climbing is possibly the geekiest sport around. Heights, adventure, puzzles. Attractive people with glasses. You'll feel like you're in Cliff Hanger. And it burns 600 calories an hour. Bouldering has virtually no entry cost other than your own shoes (rentals are available) but if you guys are interested in belaying and don't know how to do it, let me know and I'll inquire about group rates.

    Tal - FYI, I believe BKB does have group rates for entry as I know day passes are a bit pricey... It's worth an inquiry if this will be a regular thing, and it doesn't sound like most people here are regulars.

    I have a humongous hernia which must be fixed before I do anything physical. I hope to be ready in a month.

    Just for clarification, we are still meeting at 8PM though a couple of folks are meeting up earlier (see comments below). Let me know if you have a preferred start time for future events and I'll plan based on the response.

      Try again in a few months when it's warmer out. And this time let's not do it at my house.
