Welcome to the Beijing Rock Climbing Group (BRCG) Meetup page! Here you'll be able to join and organize climbing meetups with other like-minded climbers. It's a little known fact that Beijing has a lot to offer the climbing enthusiast from mid-week nights at the gym to weekend trips into the mountains. If you're looking for a climbing partner or a group to go to the crags with, this is the place!
Members of this group are asked to have, as a minimum, their own basic personal equipment [shoes, harness, and helmet] and a level of rock climbing experience that will allow them to belay others safely.
If you do not have climbing experience or know how to belay then we ask that you spend time at the local gyms before requesting membership in BRCG. Most of our activities center around outside climbing. As we do not undertake to teach climbing skills, you MUST arrive at our activities able to climb and belay safely. Once you have those skills you will find the group very supportive in helping you to achieve your climbing goals. We are an inclusive group but safety is always our primary concern.
There are several gyms in Beijing: Rock Hour 岩时攀岩 near Pingleyuan metro, Grand Rock Bouldering 浩石运动 near 798, ET climbing in Shunyi, Chaoyang Park outdoor wall, Ritan Park outdoor wall. Some of these offer climbing instruction and the opportunity to learn at least top rope belay. If you need to acquire skills and show interest by going to the gym regularly you will inevitably meet BRCG members. They or others can add you to several of the WeChat groups that will help you find climbing partners. ，，
Climbing is a potentially dangerous activity. Individual participants are responsible for their own safety. By participating in our meetups, members acknowledge this responsibility and agree to exercise good judgement at all times. Participants are asked to seek out qualified assistance when necessary and behave maturely in order to ensure the mutual safety and enjoyment of all members. The Beijing Rock Climbing Group, its organizers, members, and other constituents bear no responsibility in the event of loss of property, injury, or death resulting directly or indirectly from participation in the group's activities.
BRCG has a 30 rmb annual dues. There are various expenses, the website, movie night, trail and route equipment. Anything left over will be spent on a party or given to a climbing related organization.
