Open Climb Thursdays - VEM

Thursday night open climbing at Vertical Endeavors - Minneapolis

This week's climbing meetup will be followed by a social hour (9:30pm to 10:30pm) at Pancho Villa!

Meet the group 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. Try familiarizing yourself with some of the pictures here and looking in the gym.

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!

    I just joined the group and am wondering if its ok to bring my 13yr old. We've climbed on and off for a decade, but feels like we are starting from the beginning again.

    Not sure what time I'll be there, but when I am, I'll have the remaining inventory of t-shirts for sale.
