Let’s show up and climb at TRC North Raleigh before grabbing a bite to eat and looking at the stars. Dinner is on you but TRC has some cool perks for us:
Your first visit to the gym with the meetup is free admission and harness rental. Subsequent visits with the meetup are $13 and include harness rental (outside of meetups, day pass rates of $17 apply and do not include harness rental).
Don't worry if it's your first time or you don't know how to belay; everyone's welcome! And if you attended the recent Newbie Nirvana swing on back to get belay certified!
We’ll wrap up the climbing at 8:00pm and then head out for a quick dinner and some stargazing! We’ll stop by Chic-fil-A for a quick bite to eat before heading out to Duke Forest to look at the stars. One of TRC’s members, Ronen Plesser leads public stargazing events there and has agreed to hold an event just for TRC! He’ll have a few 10" telescopes set up so we can spend an evening looking at stars, clusters, nebulae, galaxies etc. and talk about what we see.
You’re welcome to just climb or just stargaze or of course join us for the whole evening! Regular meetup rates apply for climbing, but the stargazing portion is free.
Stargazing will depend on if the weather is allowing. Check back here on the day of, as the final call on weather may need to be made as late as that afternoon!
