Please note that I've changed the date to Sept 6 because everyone did not sign-up ontime and the group filled up. Drew, the manager has setup another group session for us on Sept 6.

There are four people currently signed-up (me, Rhea, Andreas, and Forest) to go and we can accommodate 6 (2 more).


I'd like to propose a beginners climbing class at Crag X. Cost is $45 per person and includes a week of free climbing after the lesson. This 2.5 hour course will teach you all the skills necessary to start climbing on your own. Learn how to put on your harness, tie the proper knots and safely manage the rope belay systems. The instructor will also spend some time teaching you about climbing movement and technique. By the end of the evening, you will be climbing the twisted architecture with style. Each course includes rental equipment for the lesson and a week of FREE entry to the gym so that you can engrave your new skills.

They have their regularly scheduled courses open to the public and you can sign-up for the Beginner Lesson at

Wear clothing that is comfortable and allows you the greatest freedom of movement. Many climbers prefer to have their knees covered as the climbing surface can be rough. Clothing appropriate for yoga works well. Gloves are not used.

A water bottle and a warm layer/fleece are a great thing to bring along too.

I'm going to sign-up for the Aug 29,[masked]:00 pm session and hope others will want to join in.

If there is enough interest, we may be able to schedule our own class (minimum of 6 with a reduced rate), but everyone would have to pool their money up-front to reserve the time.
