What we're about

Twin Cities Rock Climbing Meetup is a group that plans regular and spontaneous gym sessions, organizes outdoor climbing and camping adventures, and attends other climbing related events like adventure film festivals, competitions, and Adopt-a-Crag cleanups. Our members are climbers of all experience levels. Whether you are new to the sport and looking to learn, experienced and in need of new partners, or new to town and trying to find the climbing community, TCRC Meetup can be your gateway to Minnesota climbing.

TCRC is on Facebook with a group page that climbers use to connect on the fly. You can sign up through Meetup to have new events emailed to you or check the TCRC calendar on your own. Also, you can subscribe to a weekly email newsletter dedicated to the broader news and events of the Minnesota Climbing community.

All levels welcome :) Let's meet at the leather chairs next to the bathrooms. We usually go around for a brief introduction at 7 pm. Tell everyone your name, if you are first time or need any help, and whether you prefer toprope (which is what most people do), lead, or bouldering. Then we head for climbs around 7:05. IF YOU ARE NEW TO VERTICAL ENDEAVORS...If you can fill out the waiver online, ahead of time, it will save you a bit of time when you get there. http://verticalendeavors.com/bloomington/waivers/

Open Climb Thursdays - VEM

Minneapolis VE

Meet your Event Host Steve and others by the leather chairs in front of the vending machines between 7-7:15 pm. I need to retire as host, I have been working with a Singapore company and I end up having meetings at 730 pm too many Thursdays. If you or anyone you know would like to host let me or Sean know. I hope to be able to attend or show up late. If you are new to climbing, go here (http://www.meetup.com/Twin-Cities-Rock-Climbing-Meetup-Group/pages/Getting_Started/) for some helpful information. VE MEMBER BONUS For all new / never been to VE climbers. If you can find a VE member, VE has a first timers deal. Free, yes free entry and harness if entering with a member. I suggest renting shoes for $5 which help you climb better. It is normally about $15 for entry to VE and $10 to rent shoes and a harness. If you are new to the Meetup group or to this night, take a look at some of the people that RSVP'd yes. Look at event host Steve's picture or even email them through their profile and try to make a plan on how to recognize each other. I usually wear a climbing meetup shirt. The Event Host will introduce you to some of the other Meetup climbers and you can work your way into a belay group. Climb on!
