Urgent!! I had some car troubles start tonight that are going to make it very difficult for me to make it tomorrow. Is there any chance I could get a ride there and back? I live in Maple Grove, and would be happy to pay for gas if necessary. I don't have a lot of options and am trying every one of them. If someone could help me out I would be extremely grateful.

I just checked out the gym (...seen a lot of climbing gyms, and this one's easily the best I've visited) and got some more info for tomorrow. First, if you want to be able to belay you will have to pass a belay test. It's really basic, and very simple, but they don't allow people to take the test the same day as learning the skills. If you don't know how to belay, and want to be able to tomorrow, I can teach you in < 20 minutes. Give me a call at [masked] sometime this evening and we can work something out. If not, they do have auto-belays that will get you to the top (and back down) but doing it the old fashioned way is much more fun. Parking might be a challenge. It has a very small parking lot and tends to stay busy, so showing up early will help. And lastly, we'll all meet in the lobby at 1. I'll be wearing my old West Point Climbing Team t-shirt to make myself easy to spot. See you tomorrow!
