Rock Climbing is about experiences, passion, excitement, learning about fear, enjoying your surroundings, being with people you care about, enjoying the process, trying something new, getting lost in the moment, and going for it!
Climbing is a life long pursuit. Whether you enjoy the movement, the alpine, the powery boulders, the steep overhangs, the long beautiful cracks, the people, the mountains, the glaciers, the granite, the scenery, being away from it all, or seeing it all, you will always find yourself.
The Seattle Rock Climbing Group is a place to discover the power of community, to be a part of something you care about, meet new people, learn new skills, find some partners, get outside, and get involved!
This rock climbing group is your group. It was designed for you to get involved, get outside, and share the sport you love.
There are two parts to this meet up:
1.) The social forum designed to get people together, meet partners, go climbing, share route info, give tech tips, sell gear, and hang out.
2.) The instructional space designed for classes from a professional source to get people's climbing skills on the same page. Some climbers who are looking for partners, and who organize events, want climbers to have comparable skills for safety reasons. They also may be looking for climbers with a certain skill proficiency in order to participate on an outing.
For example and for everyone to be on common ground, an organizer will put down one of three levels of proficiency in order to participate in an event.
Beginners Welcome - all levels, including no experience, welcome to the event
Intermediate Welcome - climbers must have belaying mastered
Advanced Welcome - Climbers must be able to safely lead belaying, lead climb, clean anchors, and rappel safely.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED:
