Rock Gym - high angle exercise. Get $5 discount coup from BuzzTown.com

Rock Gym

- an evening of near vertical, vertical or overhung exercise -

(that is 'overhung' as in overhung wall, not hung-o... as in Saturday morning sometimes)

WHAT:

Indoor simulated rock climbing. Great way to keep active and fit during winter whether you are an outdoor rock climber or not. For those who have never been to a rock gym and do not particularly like iron pumping gym workouts, this may be worth a try.  

WHEN/WHERE:

Meet at 5:30 PM in the GJ Climbing Center lobby or on the floor of the gym if you will recognize other members. Be sure if some of us have not done stuff with you before to post an easily recognizable photo so we can find you if there is a crowd. 

BRING:

- rock shoes

-harness (or use theirs as part of the $11 fee for the evening)

- chalk bag (if you have one)

- water or sport drink

COST $:

$11/person for admission and use of one of their climbing harnesses if you do not bring your own.

If you have never done this before, trust me, it is well worth the $. Once you get into it, the cost can go down since there are things like passes, punch cards, etc. that gyms use to keep it affordable so people can come back. 

KIDS:

This is a great kid activity for kids from about 6 years and up. If you have younger ones there is plenty of room for them to play.

CONTACT:

Doug Van Etten[masked]  I can only talk in generalities or about the expereince.

    Getting a monthly membership this week!

    I did not know or recognize all the WSA members at the RG last night. WOW, great turnout. And, when the kids class and the other class left. . . we were 1/2 or more of the remaining population. I guess that suggests that 1. our members want to get togetehr there more often and 2. that we'll have to plan on some outdoor rock climbing when it gets warm. I wonder if this might also be a good place for us to have our next know tying practice evening (and oh do we need that; I sure do). Climbed a little, talked a lot and managed to tweek my wrist so it hurts this morning. All small pains will pass and I look forward to gyming it again next week. Does anyone want to talk with Randall to see if WSA can get the regular $5 college student rate on a recurring basis, please?

    The time is 5:30 (not 6:30 as it says one place. My iPad would not let me change the 5. Bring your shoes n harness. They have those funny Petzl belay devices already on the ropes. If you want to do Canyoneering w WSA I suggest you come here, join our outdoor rappel practice and attend the next knot tying session. Some or all of these are good stuff for Canyoneering. I'm headed out in time for a 7 PM presentation (either hanging flume or oil shale???).
