Gear Clinic & Rock Climbing

Free Clinic & Rock Climbing

Mountain High Outfitters is hosting a clinic at their store in Birmingham the morning of Saturday July 18. Bagels/donuts and juice will be provided by Mountain High Outfitters. After the clinic we will head to Palisades Park for a day of rock climbing.

The clinic will be taught by AMGA certified Top Rope Site Manager Adam Beck. A 15% discount will be given to any member of the meetup group wanting to purchase climbing gear the morning of the clinic.

Participants in the afternoon climb will be required to sign a waiver. Rental gear is available from Becknology Rock Climbing Guides if you don't have your own. Bring $15 if you need shoes, belay device, and/or harness.

Clinic topics:

* intro to climbing equipment
* fitting climbing shoes
* basic ropework
* belaying

This event is free to meetup members! But Palisades Park charges something like $5 or less to climb there. Come and get a great introduction to the sport of rock climbing.

    This really was a great experience, while I'm not brand new to climbing I still learned some new tricks from Adam and we got considerable amount of time outdoors.

    Team Atlanta missed most of the gear discussion, but the rock climbing section was fantastic.
