Hey everyone. I hope you've found something to climb this winter, whether it's plastic holds in a gym, ice (some people have been finding climbable ice at Great Falls), or on real rock somewhere warm (or, in my case, somewhere really frackin' cold). If not, and you want to be ready for the fast-approaching outdoor climbing season, now's the time to start hitting the (climbing) gym and getting back into shape. There are *lots* of regular weekly sessions to choose from. I made a full list below. Just note that things may change from week to week, so check Meetup to confirm the event is still happening.
SPECIAL VALENTINE'S DAY CLIMBING PARTY THIS FRIDAY - This Friday night at Sportrock Alexandria the VA/MD/DC Rock Climbers Meetup Group is co-sponsoring an (Anti-)Valentine's day party with the DC/MD/VA Adventure Meetup group. There will be a DJ (me, actually) spinning, a Basic Skills class for anyone who still needs to learn to belay, and a regular open climbing meetup. That all happens from 7pm to 9pm. Then we're all going around the corner to Nick's Nightclub for drinks and karaoke. Details are HERE.
Earth Treks Rockville
Sundays at 3:30pm with Matt
Mondays at 6pm with Joanne
Wednesdays at 9:30am with Natalia
Wednesdays at 7:30pm with Matt
Fridays at 7:30pm with whoever happens to be there
Mondays at 7:15pm with Stephanie (belay-checked women only)
Tuesdays at 7:30pm with Paul (Paul takes over next week; Adam will be there tomorrow)
Thursdays at 7:30pm with Adam (starting this Thursday)
Tuesdays at 7pm with Adam and/or Tom
Thursdays at 7:30pm with Tom
If you want to climb at Earth Treks Columbia or Earth Treks Timonium, check out the Baltimore Rock Climbing Meetup group. And there's a new Meetup group that just formed for people who climb at the Vertical Rock gym in Manassas.
If that's not enough and you'd like to organize another climbing event (one-time or recurring, beginner-friendly or belay-checked only), let me know.
Now go get your climb on and stay tuned for outdoor climbing events!
