At the end of every month we mix it up a little and head down to San Diego for a climbing session at Mesa Rim. Since it's a little bit more of an effort to get down there, why not grab a couple of beers afterwards? Typically, after we climb, we meet at Callahan's located at 8280 Mira Mesa Blvd and only 5 minutes down the road from Mesa Rim. The meetup at Callahan's is subject to change to somewhere new and exciting so be sure to check with us at Mesa Rim before you head over to Callahan's.
For those that haven't been to Mesa Rim, it is a much larger facillity than Solid Rock and also requires you to take a belay lesson. If you do not know how to tie in with a figure 8 and use an ATC with the proper hand over hand technique you will need the belay lesson. Please call Mesa Rim at 858-201-4411 and reserve a spot for a belay lesson. Lessons are available at 6:00.
This meetup is scheduled for the end of each month in place of the Solid Rock meetup for that week.
The cost is $17 but you'll get a $2 discount if you mention you are with North County Adventure and Fitness Meetup. You must be on the Meetup RSVP list to receive the discount.
In addition to the day pass, you'll need shoes and a climbing harness. Their rental rates:
Shoes $5, Harness $3, Chalk Bag $1, Belay Device (ATC or GriGri) $2
Gear package (shoes, harness, chalk bag, and belay device) $6
