Holiday CSA Veggies + Climbing at the Cliffs
I need to pick up my Thanksgiving CSA from the Cliffs. Any Vedge members who come climb can have the veggies I don't want (radishes, kohlrabi, cabbages). Climbing and free vegetables?! I know. Pretty amazing. For those interested, the Cliffs offers yoga on Tuesday nights. If you can't make it until after 6pm please post a message below. The Plan: 6pm to 8pm--Pick up veggies and climb! (If you like) 6:30pm--Yoga Warm-Up (or cool down!), a quick 30-minute yoga session for rock climbers. Anyone new to the Cliffs will need to fill out a waiver. Save time by filling it out in advance: https://app.rockgympro.com/waiver/esign/thecliffsvalhalla/4a7c9598-2ad1-425a-bdee-d9ff8161fbd8

What we're about

Vedge Waiver (http://files.meetup.com/1813231/Vedge%20Waiver.pdf)

Do you love climbing and other outdoor adventures? Do you love challenging yourself, and leaning over the edge of your comfort zone? Do you find it hard to separate your love of nature from the environment you wish to preserve or the creatures you wish to let live? Do you wish you could share this with others who "get it"?

Welcome to Vedge. I am truly grateful for the friends I have made through this meetup and the adventures we have shared. We seem to attract some of the nicest, most thoughtful, and conscientious climbers I've met.

We climb for all different reasons. Gym climbing for some is a fun and social alternative to a conventional gym. Others want to go out and test their mettle on the most challenging outdoor climbs nature has to offer. We are fortunate to have the Gunks, some of the best climbing east of the Mississippi only a two hour drive away. Regardless, we will enjoy lots of great veggie food along the way, roast tofu-pups over the camp fire, etc.

So join us for a dinner and/or gym climbing event. We warmly welcome all abilities, from those who have never climbed, to those pushing their limits on 5.12 and higher. Vegans, vegetarians, and vegetarian wannabes are all welcome.

Disclaimer of Liability:

CLIMBING IS A DANGEROUS SPORT!

Involvement in rock climbing carries a significant risk of personal injury or death. CLIMB AT YOUR OWN RISK!

NOTE: This Meetup group is NOT a source of free instruction. We are not certified instructors. We cannot accommodate large numbers of newbies who have never climbed before at these events. That said, we want to encourage new climbers. Use the discount code VEDGE2018 to get 50% off the Intro to Climbing class at the Cliffs.
