Join fellow humanists and freethinkers for an afternoon of indoor rock climbing and socializing with personal trainer and ex-West Point cadet, Blake Page, as host. Hopefully this will be the first of many recreational fitness activities we undertake together in the coming months. Whether you’re interested in trying something new, or want to challenge yourself against highly experienced climbers, Vertical Endeavors can provide you with any range of difficulty. For new climbers, a brief instructional class will be conducted by a member of the gym’s staff. For experienced climbers, Blake will be at the ready to belay and assist with top-roping, lead climbing and some friendly competition if you’re up for it. Rock climbing is one of the best ways to test your focus, balance, strength and courage in a safe and controlled environment.

After the climbing, we'll head over to World Street Kitchen at Lyndale and 27th St. --just a few blocks away--for some food and drink. http://www.eatwsk.com/ And anyone interested in helping plan some future outings can bring their suggestions to the table.
Blake Page will be serving as our recreational event planner for the coming months. Having resigned from West Point just last fall, Blake is new to Minnesota and eager to meet other fitness-minded freethinkers while he sets a new career course for himself. Blake carries certifications as a personal trainer, CPR, AED, rock climbing instruction and Army Combatives (mixed martial arts) instruction and has extensive experience in leading groups ranging in size from 3 – 160 people through prolonged excursions into the wilderness. He has successfully introduced people to the adventure lifestyle who were both sedentary city dwellers and elite competitive athletes.
