Monday Night Climbs at Go Vertical!

There's no better way to start the week than with some really good climbing! Come join us for a fun night of climbing every Monday night at Go Vertical!  Thanks to Desireah Osborne, we seem to have gotten a great crew of  regulars so let's keep that momentum going in 2013.  Now you have two nights of climbing to choose from.  So, whether you're new to climbing or a seasoned veteran, come climb with us!

And this is just the beginning...As the weather turns for the better, we'll be posting outdoor adventures along with our weekly indoor climbs.

NOTE: Since this is a recurring meetup, there will be no email reminders in your inbox.

Take your strength training to new heights, literally. Rock climbing is a full-body workout that feels less like work and more like play. An engaged core helps keep your body balanced on the wall, grip or finger strength helps you hold on, and your arms and legs are responsible for powering you up to the top of the climb. The best part: All that work builds endurance. A single climb is sure to leave you gasping for air.

 

Added bonus: Rock climbing exercises the mind. Every climbfrom short boulder problems (high-powered climbing that’s closer to the ground) to longer routesis like a maze or a puzzle. You have to figure out the best way to get to the top.

 

If you've never been rock climbing, Go Vertical offers a getting started class for $65 to teach the basics and get you feeling comfortable on the wall.  You will need to let me know ahead of time so I can make sure they have enough trainers available. The class is 2 hours long and includes all gear and 2 free climbing passes to use in the following two weeks.

 

If you have you own gear, it is $18 to climb till closing.  If you need to rent shoes, belay, and harness it is an additional $12, so $30 total. If you find you like climbing, I recommend investing in gear to save money.

    Hey folks! Scott may not be able to join us tonight. I'm shooting to get there as close to 6 pm as possible...but for the newcomers, ask the front desk if any meetup members have arrived and they can point you in their direction. While I'm not sure what I'll be wearing, I know I'll have my pink hat with the silver spider on again!

    It's been nearly 10 years since doing top rope climbing so will need a belay refresher course... I have harness, shoes and simple belay loop/carabiner.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
