Let's meet for a quick bite to eat and then climb at Brooklyn Boulders (http://www.brooklynboulders.com/).
'sNice (http://www.snicecafe.com/brooklyn/) (315 5th Ave, Brooklyn) is a nice vegetarian café (with plenty of vegan options) that's just a few blocks from BKB (http://www.brooklynboulders.com/)! Let's grab a quick bite before heading over for some climbing.
In case anyone's new, I'll display my belay device obviously at the table, so it'll be easier for you to find us:
If anyone would like to meet directly at Brooklyn Boulders (http://www.brooklynboulders.com/) (575 Degraw St, Brooklyn, NY), I'll post the day before what I'll be wearing, so it'll be easy to find me there. Brooklyn Boulders has given our meetup the discounted rate of $19 (including all gear). Just tell them you're with Vedge when you arrive.
Notice to beginners: if you have never ever climbed or belayed before you will need to take a Learn the Ropes class. These can be scheduled here (http://www.brooklynboulders.com/classes/prebooking/). There is a nominal fee for this. What to wear: comfortable clothes (think yoga).
Notice to newcomers: You need to pass a belay certification test. If you've belayed before, the test will only take a couple of minutes. If you need a refresher, a test partner, or belay partner, just let me know.
