What we're about

This group is for anyone who wants to climb (indoors or outdoors).

The first thing about this group is *SAFETY*

As some of you remember - I had an accident while rock climbing recently. I was dropped by someone who was belay certified but who I have only climbed with a few times (and yes this person seemed to be belaying others without issue prior)... Please be safe and know your belayer - if you do not trust the person then ask for someone else to belay or use the auto belay.

No climbing experience? No problem -->TAKE a course -Belay Me is a drop-in climbing time for beginner adults for a safe and fun climbing experience - their belay courses are usually 2 hours. It is worth it and it saves lives and accidents...

Safety is of the utmost importance if you wish to join a session but have never belayed then contact the event organizer and advise them prior to signing up - as it is prudent for all involved that you be, at the very minimum, certified in the belay!

A lot of people (especially for outdoors) prefer climbing with those they have climbed with and know. If you are new, then suggest to climb indoors with someone (once belay certified) and get a feel for each other and develop trust - it takes a while to trust someone. Take your time, do it right and have fun - trust will develop over time.

***Remember, I am not an instructor, nor am I willing to be - I will help newer climbers - but you must be experienced in the belay - if you are not then I may not have you join an event.

Climbing is the activity of using one's hands, feet, or any other part of the body to ascend a steep object - usually a rock face outdoors or indoors (Cliffhanger, Base 5 gym).

We will go a minimum of at least three times a week - indoors/outdoors...We go indoors and when the weather permits, outdoors.

Let the climbing begin.
