Open Climb Thursdays - VEM

Thursday night open climbing at Vertical Endeavors - Minneapolis

This week's climbing meetup will be followed by a social hour (9:30pm to 10:30pm) at Pancho Villa!

Meet your Event Host Alli by the leather chairs in front of the vending machines between 7-7:15 pm.

If you do not meet the group by the leather chairs, you will have a tough time finding them in the gym.  It is a big gym and people are there to climb. If you find yourself late try looking for Alli!

If you are new to climbing, go here for some helpful information.


If you are new to the Meetup group or to this night, take a look at some of the people that RSVP'd yes.  If there is an Event Host there, take a look at their picture or even email them through their profile and try to make a plan on how to recognize each other ("I'll be wearing a purple shirt and have orange hair" or something of that nature).  The Event Host will introduce you to some of the other Meetup climbers and you can work your way into a belay group.


On Thursday nights in Minneapolis, VE offers the Sport Lead Lesson.  If you are interested in learning to lead climb, take a look here for class details.


Use the message board below to connect with other Thursday night climbers about carpooling, meeting at the gym, post-climbing activities, etc.


Climb on!

    Hey everyone, I have never climbed before but am really interested in learning and was hoping to get started in it this winter. Is there some sort of introductory class that I should check out before joining the thursday group or can I just hop in with you all on Thursday and pick it up as I go?

      Sounds great, thanks Shelby! I think i'm going to give it a try tonight, do you all still meet at the chairs in front of the vending machines or how should I go about connecting with the group?

    I have climbed on the wall when I took my son to scout camp and the guy couldn't believe I had never done it, so now I would love to get started, hopefully my wife can make it home in time for me to join you guys tonight.
