• Rock Climbing at VE Bloomington - All Levels

    Vertical Endeavors - Bloomington

    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 usually go around for a brief introduction at 7 pm. Tell everyone your name, your experience level, and your climbing preference (top rope, lead, or bouldering). Then we head out for climbs around 7:05 PM.

    I will wear a red bandanna on my left wrist to help new members find myself and the group after introductions. We usually don't climb with our phones, as they are a safety hazard if it falls off from up high.

    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.

    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/.

  • Wednesday Evening Climbing at Vertical Endeavors Minneapolis

    Vertical Endeavors Minneapolis

    Gyms are open again. Reservations are no longer required! We will meet by the vending machines between between 5:30 and 5:40. Please be on time.
    You should know at least basic climbing skills to attend this event. Please know how to tie in to the rope and belay or bring your own belayer. If you only do auto belays, then this event is not for you. Before COVID-19, I would gladly do training sessions for beginners, but now that time is limited, and to maintain physical distance, I can't.

  • Friday Night Bouldering at VE TCB - All Levels

    Vertical Endeavors–Twin Cities Bouldering

    Vertical Endeavors (VE) is now open with no reservations necessary!

    In the before times we bouldered on Fridays and then went to a brewery in the area afterwards. We're bringing that back starting in June!

    I believe masks are still required for now since the gym is located in Minneapolis. That may change soon though.

    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 people are interested we will pick a nearby brewery and head there afterwards. 21+ for the brewery. All ages are welcome for bouldering.

    If you have questions feel free to message one of the hosts or write a
    comment.
