Wednesday Night Climbing

Welcome to The Fairfield Rock Climbing Group!

You're on the ground floor of what will become Fairfield County's largest organized group of climbers. Our number 1 goal: Unite the southern Connecticut climbing scene, help new climbers get started in a non-intimidating environment, and coordinate fun climbing opportunities for the community - indoors and out.

The Plan:

We'll all Meetup at 7pm near the front desk to meet the crew, gear up and get climbing! We'll officially wrap up around 9:30pm then head over to Colony Pizza on the post road in Fairfield for food/drinks.

Cost: It's free to participate with the group but regular climbing gym rates apply. Carabiner's has been good enough to offer FIRST TIME VISITORS of FRC Meetup a special introductory rate.

First Time Visitor Deal: $10 day pass | $15 day pass (equipment included)

Belay Certification

Top rope climbing does require certification at any indoor climbing facility. If you're already certified at Carabiners, you're all set! If you know how to belay but this is your first time climbing at Carabiners you'll be asked to complete a simple belay test. Arrive a few minutes early if possible to take your free belay test.

First Time Climbers

Top roped indoor climbing does require belay certification but don't let that scare you off! No experience is required to participate with us on your first visit. If you have fun with the group and would like to continue to RSVP for our meetups, we suggest scheduling a Belay Course with the staff at Carabiners. Once completed, you'll be certified to belay on your own and take turns belaying members of our group. Its simple, super fun, and makes you a contributing member of our climbing group.

    Tonight was one of the biggest meetup events I have seen in quite a while. We had the pleasure of seeing the Wednesday crew and a good portion of the usual Tuesday crew at one event. In addition, I met and shook hands with seven people either new or returning from a long break.

    It was certainly great to see everyone and we even had a few people come climb and belay who don't usually work with the group. As always, everyone is welcome and we are happy to do what we can to help.

    Nate did a great job getting people outfitted and out on the floor. I was able to get people to assist in belaying first timers. Some chose to boulder as well or try their hand at the slackline.

    A trip to Colony followed and I saw some new faces along with the regulars.

    After some warm up climbs, I was able to clean climb two of the 5.10 routes properly. I look forward to working these top rope routes more to try and get them more smoothly.

    I look forward to climbing again on Friday.

    *** FIRST TIME AT THE GYM *** If anyone is a new member and needs information or a belay, please have someone at the front desk come find me and I will be happy to give you the tour, introduce you to people and get you climbing.

    A good night to try the 5.10 routes after a brief warmup. I believe I can clean climb 4-5 this night.
