RockVentures Indoor Rock Climbing

Let's get together and climb at RockVentures!

This meetup is for climbers of all levels, even first timers. RockVentures does a great job of training everyone on how to belay/climb. Everyone who hasn't climbed at RockVentures in 6 months will be required to take the belay/climb training.

When you arrive at RockVentures, enter through the main door, sign the waiver, pay, and check-in at the front desk. We will gather near the picnic tables to the left of the front desk.

If you haven't climbed before I would recommend wearing "gym clothes". I would also recommend removing any jewelry.

RockVentures address: 1044 University Ave Rochester, NY 14607

All the way in the back PAST T-Shirt Express!

Pricing:

Admission $15 Belay Training (14+) $11 Climbing Shoe Rental $3 Chalk Bag Rental $1 Let's also start the conversation of an outdoor climb at Rattlesnake Point in Milton, ON (or similar) in the spring if anyone is interested.

    Definitely a great place to have fun, face your fear and connect with new people.

      Jen - BTW, your belay card is still at RV. They probably forgot to mention to pick it up on your way out - I'm guessing they will probably keep it for you for the next time you go.

    • Jenn

      Okay, thanks! I'd like to go again Monday night so maybe I'll pick it up then.

      Absolutely! I had a great time, even if I did experience some jitters. :) Facing my fear was worth it though. What time are u guys thinking of going on Monday?

    That was great. I think I'm going to be getting a membership for a couple months to see how I like it, so feel free to get a hold of me if anyone would like a climbing buddy. Thanks for arranging this, Pat!

    Hello Rock Climbers-

    I hope you're excited for rock climbing tonight at RockVentures! I'm coming right from work, so I may be just a few minutes late.

    When you arrive at RV enter through the main door, sign the waiver, pay, and check-in at the front desk. We will gather near the tables to the left to stretch and get our climbing/belay training(if you haven't been to RV in the last 6 months).

    If you haven't climbed before I would recommend wearing "gym clothes". I would also recommend removing any jewelry. If you're arriving a little late, that's not a problem- just sign in and tell the front desk person that you're with this meet up group and you will need belay training. After that, come find me and I will belay you/help you find a belay partner. I will be wearing a Boston Red Sox hat and look more like a rugby player than a rock climber. See you all tonight!

    I'd love to do this, but have my kids on Thurdays. Hope it's posted again sometime.

      Mine also have various activities that I have to carpool them to. And I would have to multiply the admission charge by 3, and that can get pretty pricy. I'd rather try it out myself first, and then bring them if I really like it. My son has aspergers, and certain activities/surroundings can really overwhelm him.

    Just an FYI...kids age 2 and up can climb. To belay they must be at least 14 and take the class!

  • Tim

    sounds fun! I have my son Thursday but will do my best to be there.

    No better way to meet a bunch of new people than to have them stare at your butt while you try to drag it up a wall, right?! :) Hi5, Kim!

      No kidding, Pam! I hope I don't need to use a please do not follow... wide load ahead.... LOL
