Open Climb Thursdays - VEM

Thursday night open climbing at Vertical Endeavors - Minneapolis


Meet your Event Host Alli 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 can't make it in time, try to find Alli!


Climbing this Thursday 7/25 will be followed by a social hour starting at 9pm at Pancho Villa, which is located just across the street. Get ready for 2-for-1 margaritas!!


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 Thursday nights in Minneapolis, VE offers the Sport Lead Lesson.  If you are interested in learning to lead climb, take a look here for class details.


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


Climb on!

      Yup! We're usually there until 9. You'll have to try to find us around the gym so try to familiarize yourself with some of our pictures and look for us when you arrive.

    Looks like we don't have a host. I'll stand in tonight. Meet at the leather chairs at 7 to 7:15. Look for me in tan pants, grey t-shirt, red climbing shoes and a grey/green harness with an orange chalk bag. If your going to be later let me know when you plan on arriving and I will be at the chairs.

    Is anyone coming from south of minneapolis that wants to carpool? I am coming from Bloomington and wouldn't mind picking someone up who is on the way.

    Do any of the ladies want to meet at VE St. Paul at 7pm, Friday? I just learned to belay and would like to get some practice.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
