Rockville Earth Treks on Fridays!

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.

It is recommended that you take the belay test (top rope) and belayed certified prior to coming out. If you need to be paired up, that's fine. We'll help you. If you don't need a partner, say hello anyway!! We recommend that beginners attend a session when an event host is present.  Event hosts are indicated in the RSVP settings.

Climbing is $18 for a day pass and $11 for full gear rental (or pro-rated based on needed equipment). Seasonal Passes (summer), Series and Gym Memberships are also available.

New to climbing? Purchase the Introductory Package and get a second one free for a friend! Typically I'll try to set you up in a group of three with two climbers who can help show you belaying and knot tying. You do need to be belay certified (pass the belay test) in order to belay. 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, attending the Meetup.

Also, since it's a Friday night, for those who are interested, after the gym closes maybe we can grab a bite or a drink.

    I'll be in the gym around 5:30-6 if anyone is interested in going early. Just looking to TR.
