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.

Wednesday Night Bouldering at VE TCB - all levels

Vertical Endeavors–Twin Cities Bouldering

Despite the never-ending pandemic, Vertical Endeavors (VE) is open! Until it's safe to resume our weekly meetup events, let's safely boulder together at TCB. Note: Reservations are required for entry into VE, and spots are limited! Please review the guidelines and register at the link below, scrolling down to the bottom, and selecting the "VE-Twin Cities Bouldering, MN" Icon: https://www.verticalendeavors.com/visit-us/pricing/reservations/ You don't specifically have to register for the 7 PM - 9 PM slot, as individuals can arrive earlier/later. I plan to arrive earlier at 6:45 PM, and I will (attempt to) wear a red bandanna on my left wrist to help new members find the group. Please keep your space. Always wear your mask. We will split into smaller groups to exercise and socialize safely inside the premises. New to rock climbing? All levels are welcome. No technical lessons are required to participate. After a short orientation from the staff, all that is needed is a pair of climbing shoes (available to rent at VE) to start climbing with us.

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/minneapolis/waivers/ NEW TO THE MEETUP GROUP? After climbing, we'll do an informal ask-around if anyone's interested in going out for lunch, as there are great restaurants within walking distance. No need to RSVP for lunch, just join us if you'd like. IF YOU ARRIVE LATE... We typically start our warmups in the room with large windows on the second floor, especially in the winter, as that room is warmer. Find us there!
