What better way to prepare for Thanksgiving feasting, then climbing the night before? We continue our every-Wed climbing meetups. The previous one was great, a mix of newcomers and returnees. Join us if you need a belay, or just pop by to say hi!https://www.earthtreksclimbing.com/columbia-climbing-center.html
Note they've opened up their new climbing area, so enjoy the new walls!
The regular Wednesday 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 3-8 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, look for a tall guy (me) in blue camo pants with an orange bandana stuck to the back of his harness as a 'MeetUp Flag'.
