Rock climbing at Urban Ascent Gym
Urban Ascent Climbing Gym and BTH have partnered to offer you a great way to stretch your legs and your wallet with a discounted Monday night climb session for BTH members. For $10, you can participate in a Monday night climbing session, and gear rental is additional ($7 for shoes and harness). You may also bring your own gear. This event repeats every Monday at 6:30pm. You must sign up on this website in order to get the discount. If you are a first time climber, you MUST participate in a 10 minute safety and basics class which costs an additional $5. To take the safety class, come in 10 minutes before the Monday climb session begins, let the management at UA know you are there to take the class, and you'll be partnered with a belayer so you can complete the class. Then, you are ready to climb with BTH for $10 on Mondays. UA requires all climbers to sign a waiver that covers climbing done in their gym. To receive the Monday night discount, please mention that you are a BTH member upon signing in at UA, and they will check the website for your name. In addition, there is a Friday night half-price climbing session from 5pm to 10pm. Occasionally, Groupon, Living Social, or CitySmart offer monthly pass vouchers that discount climbing sessions even more. If you see this kind of discount, please let others know about it via this site. This is considered a no-host event that repeats every Monday so that folks can get the discount as a BTH member. If you're an experienced climber, you can find one or two partners by emailing or talking with each other via this page or giving a general shout out, as in "Hey! I need a partner!!" If you're a newbie, feel free to contact DebR and we'll get you started with a small group after you've had your basic safety class. You'll find that this group is very inclusive and happy to share. Each one, teach one ;). It's a great way to make friends, climb, and have fun! When participating in this event, you have read and agreed to the BTH and UA waivers. Here is a link to Urban Ascent:

What we're about

Public Group

Hiking is a fun way of taking the path less traveled or untraveled. Meet other local hiking enthusiasts who want to start going on more moderate hikes before moving on to the more advanced trails or scrambling. We are courteous to nature but want some adventure too.

In order to have a positive experience it is recommended that you have experience hiking in general and are relatively physically fit.
