----

Welcome to the Friday ET Meetup! Whether you're a beginner or an experienced climber, this is a great way to meet other climbing enthusiasts. If you've never climbed before, we can help you get started and show you the basics. If you have climbed before and need someone to belay, we can do that, too. If you're an expert climber, you're probably better than the rest of us, but we won't hold that against you.

Help! I'm here and I don't see anyone. What do I do? This is a normal occurrence with this type of Meetup. People tend to pair up with familiar faces immediately. Hosts usually do not wait around. Non-frequent flyers are often no-shows. We suggest you ask the front desk to page for Meetup. If a host/organizer is present, someone will arrive. Otherwise, feel free to explore for members (we are happy to triple up!), use the trade-a-belay board for the general population or check out the boulder cave. To avoid not finding people, post your clothing description in the discussion or ask others to do the same.

Not a gym member and/or need to rent gear? Visit here for the latest prices for gym day, series or season passes and rentals.

Looking to lead climb? We vary on attendance for those who can lead climb. We recommend posting on the discussion board below to see if another person is available to lead climb with you.

New to climbing? It is recommended that beginner climbers get belayed certified prior to joining the group. Purchase the Introductory Package and get a second one free for a friend! Typically we'll try to set you up in a group of three with other climbers who can help show you belaying and knot tying. If you don't know how to belay, please make sure there are at least 5 people who do know how to belay, including an organizer/host, attending the Meetup.

New to the group? Please check the RSVP list to see if a host/organizer is attending. If you have trouble finding people in the group have Earth Treks page for a Meetup member. We recommend that newcomers post on the event discussion board with details of your wardrobe and to indicate you're new to our group! Look at the attendance list to see if a host/organizer is present for best results.

What if an organizer or host isn't present? The Meetup event runs itself host or no host. Go ahead and pair up with anyone available. You don't need any special "go ahead" from a host. Climb on!

    I guess as a co-host I should tell you what I'll be wearing. I'll have a heather grey Guinness shirt with a green clover on it, and grey 3/4 pants. They're like capris, but for men. Don't judge. Oh, and I look exactly like my profile pic, but in color. And I have no sense of humor. Don't even try to make me laugh.

      I'll be in the front area at 6:30.

    Someone can take my spot at the climb and at the bar...I've had an unexpected situation come up and can't make it up to Rockville this evening. :(

  • Grace

    I will be climbing tonight for sure, but I doubt I will be up for the bar - so if someone else wants in they should take my place!

    March 15, 2013

  • Chris

    I'll be at the gym around 3 if anyone wants to coordinate.

    March 15, 2013

    • Laura

      I will be there around 5.

  • Todd

    Ugh, I've been wanting to climb, but I just don't think that's going to happen tonight after all..... I'll be able to catch up with you at the bar though.

    March 15, 2013

  • Chris

    You'll look at everyone else… and be green with envy! Ha ha ha ha.

    I don't know if I already posted this, but this will be my first time with the group! I will be wearing a green (duh) tank top, with yoga pants with yellow and purple stripes on top. Please if you see me wandering around helplessly looking for the group, throw me a bone! :)

  • Jennifer

    I'll come out to the bar if there's space :-) Would be great if someone has an extra guest pass, otherwise I'll just pay regular entry fee.
