Open Climb Mondays - VEM

Monday night open climbing at Vertical Endeavors - Minneapolis

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!

    Hey All! Just an FYI, this will be my last time hosting Monday Nights. I'll still be coming in to climb on Mondays, but I'm not up to hosting anymore. If you're a regular and would like to host, shoot Sean a message.

    Thanks all, it's been fun! If you're coming tonight, I'll see you at 7.

      Thank you for all your efforts as an Event Host, Emily! Without volunteers like you, a lot of climbers would not find their way into the fold. I appreciate everything you've done for us and hope we still see you around the gym and crag as your time allows. Best of luck with your future endeavors!

    I was there a two weeks ago, but nobody was around on Thursday. I haven't had anyone to climb for me to finish the belay either, so if someone wouldn't mind. Thanks, hopefully I'll find you guys this time.

      Tyler, you've got to hit that 10-15 minute window around 7 if you want to join the group. Otherwise, it is your responsibility to email or otherwise reach out to someone who has RSVP'd yes to make arrangements to meet. The gym is too big to say we are going to be here or there. Chad and Emily P are Monday regulars. I suggest starting with them. Good luck!

    I would like to make sure I can find someone since this is the first time I will be attending one of these events or the VE location. Any suggestions or maybe phone number exchanges?

      Get there early to fill out the waiver, pay, get your rentals, and do the orientation. Like, at least 30 min early bc it can take them quite a while to round everyone up and actually do the orientation. Parking can suck, so take that into consideration as well. The leather chairs that the meetup group gathers at are the same place you'll wait for your orientation to begin. So once you're done with it, just go back to the chairs - some people may have a meetup tag on their harness - otherwise just ask if they're there for meetup and people will introduce themselves :) have fun!
