Rock Climbing: Basic Skills Class

  • Aug 23, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Always wanted to learn how to climb? Get certified to belay, learn the safety systems of belaying, basic knot tying, and basic climbing movement in this hands-on class. Climbing is great exercise, social and totally a lot of fun!

This course is designed for people with little or no climbing experience, this course teaches the skills needed to climb independently at any rock climbing facility. Or, if you need a refresher. Once we go through the skills - then we go and climb!! All equipment is included!

DATE: Friday, August 23rd, 7:00pm-9:00pm

COST: $31/pp (non-refundable).  Must be paid to RSVP via Amazon payments! You can still join in for regular climbing if you are certified to belay. Must be able to pass belay test! (Just put a comment up if you are joining us and already passed your belay test)

 


 

*Parking at Sportrock can be difficult on busy days so make sure to give yourself enough time to find alternate partking. Or, the even is also metro accessible from Van Dorn Metro Station. If you can offer a ride - please do so!

 

CARPOOL: Don’t forget if you want a ride or are willing to offer a ride – be a friend to the environment, save money, and make friends by just posting a message!!



- Have a ride: Please post where you are coming from, what time, and how many spots you have.



- Need a ride: Post that you need a ride and contact any offers via e-mail for those that are offering rides.

    I'm not able to go last minute. Will there be another opportunity that I can go since I paid already?

    If anyone's looking for a partner (if you decide to keep going and take the test), let me know. I live <10 minutes away and wouldn't mind going more often.
