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 other members for additional excursions or gather advice from the climbing community in MN.

Rock Climbing at VE Bloomington - All Levels

Needs a location

Back by popular demand. The Meetup group will be meeting for weekly Wednesday night climbing at VE Bloomington. Let's meet at the leather chairs next to the bathrooms at 7 PM.

We will do brief introduction at 7:05 PM. Tell everyone your name, your experience level, and your climbing preference (top rope, lead, or bouldering). We head out for climbs once smaller groups are established.

If you are just new to the Meetup group, arriving 5 mins before and messaging the event of your arrival time beforehand will significantly help us find each other!

IF YOU ARE NEW TO VERTICAL ENDEAVORS, please arrive at least 15 mins early, to allow time for checking in, rentals, and additional time to find us. You can fill out the waiver online, ahead of time, to help save time when you check in.

If you arrive late, I will tie a red bandanna around my left wrist to help new members find myself and the group after introductions. We don't climb with our phones, as they are a safety/fall hazard and are easily prone to damage during the sport.

The meetup is free, but you will need to pay to enter the gym. Please check the Vertical Endeavors' website for entrance costs and gear rental.
