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.

    A good number of people climbed and some brought first time climbers with them. About 8:30 PM they turned out the lights for "climbing in the dark". This used to be something they did once a month, now I think they do it randomly just to keep us on our toes. As luck would have it, I was working a 5.10 and reaching for the crux hold when the lights went out. I am sure it is fun to climb in the pitch black, but I don't know when that would be true.

    I moved my party to the smaller gym to finish up the night. The party moved to Colony for pizza and beer. More good times to follow and home before midnight.

    I look forward to climbing again on Friday and hope I can pull off one more ice climbing weekend. If the weather holds, we see hitting the rock outdoors in three weeks.

    See you all on Friday.

    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.

    If you have never been the the gym before, you will need to fill out and sign a waiver/registration form.

    You can fill out the electronic form beforehand at this website:

    Look forward to meeting you.

    I look forward to climbing hard on the 5.10 routes followed by a trip to Colony for pizza and refreshments.
