Weekly climbing at ET Columbia continues! If you're new to the group, welcome! If you're new to climbing-- come! We're at all levels of ability. We have an informal group of around 9 climbers, men and women, of whom 3-5 show up on any given week. We'd like to grow our group, and it's open to everyone. The more people who show, the more climbing we can get in!
If you've never been to EarthTrek, here's a summary. EarthTrek policy is you have to sign a waiver than pass a belay test (just once) to belay, all at their front desk. A day pass is $16 (or you can buy a pack of 7 for $96) and they also rent shoes ($5) and harnesses ($5). Dress in comfortable clothing and have a go at it! The gym is in an industrial park in Columbia, you can visit their website (above) for directions and details.
HOW TO FIND US:
We meet in the climbing area itself-- we're easy to spot, for this meetup, look for a tall girl (Linda) with an orange bandana stuck to the back of her harness as a 'MeetUp Flag'.
WANT TO SHOW EARLY?
If you'd like to arrive before our organizer shows up at 8pm, just add a note to your RSVP or in the forums to see if you can arrange earlier belays!
We are cross-posting this and other Columbia event from our main list, on the Baltimore Climbing Meet-Up group:http://www.meetup.com/Baltimore-Rock-Climbing/
Join both groups, they overlap but also have unique events of their own!
