Climb Olympic Oval's wall!

Safe, safely and safety! 

This is my biggest concern! If you are letting go of the rope with your brake hand, I will invite you to leave. If you do anything stupid, I will invite you to leave. If you disrespect anyone, I will invite you to leave. If you feel uncomfortable with your belayer, let me know and I will belay instead.

Oval offers $11.50 admission for us at this hour, so lets take advantage of it! Also you can use any of their facility as well, like the gym.  Majority of the wall has a simulated surface, and there's also a competition like section for the harder routes with over hang.

We may go for food and drink after if you're up for it. It's good to know each other and build trust on and off the wall.

Please sign the waiver and bring it to me, thanks!

    It was a lot of fun. Everyone was friendly and helpful teaching me how to rick climb. I'm new so i didn't know how to belay for others but the other members were very understanding. Definitely going next time!
