EarthTreks Rockville - Weekly Wednesdays

Welcome to the Wednesday ET Meetup!  This is our second most popular weekly event! 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! If you don't know how to belay, contact the host prior to joining the event to ensure availability arrangements.

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. Please keep in mind that this Meetup caters to the 18+ crowd. Families are recommended to use Earth Treks programs such as open climbs.

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!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
