Rock Climbing Mix and Mingle

This is a fun Meet and Greet rock climbing event at our neighborhood indoor climbing gym Planet Rock. It is for people who have zero experience and are interested in exploring their interest in rock climbing, and those new and experienced climbers looking to just climb and have fun.

People will get to mingle, climb, and establish possible long term climbing partnerships. New/beginner climbers will get to meet people at their similar levels, while seasoned climbers will pick a partner(s) of their similar size and just jump on the wall and start having fun. No climbing equipment is required as it can be rented at the gym. You are of course welcome to bring your own.

After everyone had fun and gets tired, we will head over to Dominick's at around 3:30pm, a local restaurant at Downtown Ann Arbor for food. (Address for Dominick's: 812 Monroe St Ann Arbor, MI 48104, United States) 

If you have any concerns or questions, call/text me at[masked]-6875.

    A few people asked about climbing shoes. REI is having a clearance sale on their cheapest climbing shoes: http://www.rei.com/product/799655/evolv-defy-vtr-rock-shoes

      I'm actually climbing down south (Kentucky) starting on the 20th for three days, so I won't be able to make :(

      Have fun! That is actually my alternative climbing location, at the RRG. I chose the rattlesnake point because beside that I heard lots of good things about it, it is only half the distance, hehe.

    Hi Lois!! Is this event going to be every Saturday at noon?

    September 5, 2013

    • Lois

      I would not be able to host it personally for every Saturday. However, I would be happy to post it as a venue for people to get together at Planet Rock though.
