Weekly THURSDAY Sportrock Alexandria

  • SportRock - Alexandria

Due to high demand, welcome to SR2 Thursdays!

Meet us by the tables near the whiteboard - I'm Emily and I'll be wearing a red bandana tied to my harness, so if you are late, just find me and I'll make sure you have someone to belay with.

Tuesday is this meetup's "official" SportRock Alexandria meetup day.  What does that mean? It means that there will always be an official organizer there, usually Adam.  It also means that even if you are not belay-certified or even if you've never climbed before, you can still get some top-rope time because we belay new people for free (but don't forget we like to climb too!).  We also double-check everybody's belay technique because sometime people haven't belayed in a while or they've picked up bad belay habits. So for those reason, we urge brand new climbers to check out the Tuesday event.

With that said, the Thursday climbs are still open to new climbers as well.  You can show up and boulder with the group and you can also take your chances and try to get a top-rope ride with one of the other members that sign up, but if you aren't belay-certified, don't say we didn't warn you if you spend the whole night watching (which can be fun in its own right anyway)!

Costs for Non Members:

Adult Day Pass: $18            Shoes: $5          
College Day Pass: $10          Harness: $5

      I'm sure someone could make Sundays happen. You could make a Suggested group for Sundays.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
