Open Climb Mondays (Technique Edition)- VEM

Monday night open climbing at Vertical Endeavors - Minneapolis

*****Special Technique Edition*****

Chris Hesselbein will be available to help Meetup members with their climbing technique. Chris (the guy with the iPad) will be giving free technique assessments. Sign up with him at the leather chairs when you get there and he will try to make it around to anyone who wants to brush up on their climbing technique.

Meet your Event Host (if they RSVPd Yes) ------>

by the leather chairs in front of the vending machines between 7-7:15 pm.

If you do not meet the group by the leather chairs, you will have a tough time finding them in the gym. It is a big gym and people are there to climb.

If you are new to climbing, go here for some helpful information.

If you are new to the Meetup group or to this night, take a look at some of the people that RSVP'd yes. If there is an Event Host there, take a look at their picture or even email them through their profile and try to make a plan on how to recognize each other ("I'll be wearing a purple shirt and have orange hair" or something of that nature). The Event Host will introduce you to some of the other Meetup climbers and you can work your way into a belay group.

On Monday nights in Minneapolis, VE offers the Basic Safety Lesson. If you are brand new, take a look here for class details.

Use the message board below to connect with other Monday night climbers about carpooling, meeting at the gym, post-climb activities, etc.

Climb on!

    It was so great to meet all of you! I hope to see you around the gym, or better yet, the crag, soon! Check out Climb Smart MN for more info on technique classes or even outdoor skills. Crank on, Meetup!

    There is a 50% chance I could make this one. Anyone wants to split a 2-for-1 coupon with me ($8.11/ea inc tax)?

    Also, check out this French guy mincing a V10 at the VEM last week! http://bit.ly/LoicV10
