Climbing MeetUp at MetroRock Gym in Everett. Toprope, sport leading, and bouldering available, including some tall walls up to 55 feet. Whether you're a new or experienced climber, join us for a fun and solid workout! We usually have people at all levels. Gym meetups are also a great way to make more friends for outdoor climbing. Plus Mondays are Ladies' Night: discounted admission for women. If you'd like to lead climb, don't forget to bring your rope :)
*** If you are new to MetroRock Gym and/or climbing, please see the FAQ below. ***
Please RSVP if possible; helps everyone to know others are coming. Meet at the picnic table near bouldering area (usually the round one, if available) at 7 PM. We usually wait a few minutes there to make introductions, but if you arrive later and miss us at the table, check the small whiteboard near the bathrooms and water fountain, for a description of what the Event Host (see RSVP list) is wearing that day, and come find us on the walls. Don't be shy, make an effort to ask around and find the group; we're all friendly. We usually climb until ~9-9:30 PM, but if you'd like to secure partner(s) who can come earlier or stay later, feel free to post to the comment section below.
Full-access Day Pass: $22. Students, Military or Bouldering-Only Pass: $18. Mondays are Ladies Night: Women's Pass $14 after 3 PM & also special class pricing.

Frequently Asked Questions for Newbies:
Q) How do I get to the gym?
A) See website for directions: http://www.metrorock.com/ If you're driving here for the first time, it can be tricky to find MetroRock Everett, especially in the dark! Use a GPS if possible. MetroRock is in a building opposite Boston Coach. If you don't have a vehicle, the gym offers a shuttle service from nearby Wellington T Station; call the gym for schedule details.
Q) I've never climbed at MetroRock Gym before, what do I need to do?
A) You'll need to take and pass a belay test for rope climbing. There is a separate test for toproping and sport lead climbing (if you are interested in both). For toproping, if you are not confident you can tie a re-threaded figure-8 knot and double fisherman's backup knot and safely belay a climber using an ATC device, it is highly recommended you take the Basic Safety class. They will not allow you to climb on ropes without passing a belay test. Call MetroRock in advance to reserve your spot in the class, and ask them about any discounts or special prices they are offering. Also, you can rent basic climbing gear (harness, shoes, belay device, etc), if needed, at the gym.
