For everyone that lives or works on the East side of the Delaware River - or those that just want to mix up their regular routine - there's now a regular Thursday Evening Meetup at Elite Climbing in Maple Shade, NJ.
Complete Beginners are welcome - the regular Thursday night crowd is very accommodating and several of us are instructors. There are no extra charges for beginners, although you will want to rent both the climbing harness AND shoes.
Day passes are $15 (or $8 for College Students). We'll be climbing until the gym closes (officially 10:00 PM, but that's very "-ish"). Frequently there is a food & drink destination after climbing.
When you arrive, ask for Ted at the front desk to get pointed in the correct direction.
Note that most of the regulars generally don't sign up for the Meetup - however as long as the Meetup is listed there will be several climbers there throughout the evening.
One important point about directions: Many Maps & GPS units will identify the road as either OLD King's Highway or EAST King's Highway. Google Maps uses EAST, while the signs on the actual road say OLD. If you are have a GPS that accepts Longitude & Latitude values, use 39.941187 & -74.98139 to get the most accurate results. If you want specific directions, you can either call the gym (856- 273-1370) or message the host at least a day before the Meetup for help.
