EVENT HOSTS WANTED

We need more climbers to lead meetups! Must be safe and like people. The idea is you pick a day/time and a crag or gym and then invite people to meet you climb with you. You're not guiding anyone. Attendees must be self-sufficient and be responsible for their own safety. Note: hosting a climbing meetup does not involve people visiting your home. Usually for outdoor meetups they meet you at the parking area and you hike in together. Can restrict attendance based on things like gear, experience, skills (e.g. must be able to lead 5.9, must have a rope, must bring a bouldering pad, ect), and women-only meetups are great! Message me to learn more!

BEGINNERS - HOW TO GET STARTED IN CLIMBING

  1. Find a climbing gym near you
  2. Take an Intro to Climbing class to learn fundamentals like how to belay and tie a figure 8
  3. Attend SoCal Climbing meetups!

Magnificent Monday Meetup @ Cliffs of Id

Needs a location

Come make new friends, work on technique, or do whatever helps you achieve your climbing goals.

Meet us at the bottom of the stairs in the top rope area at 6:30PM, and find Alison in the pink shirt and green pants. At about 6:45PM, we'll do an ice-breaker then pair off for climbing.

PS: If the RSVP list is full, you can still join us - just come to the gym and meet us as instructed above.

Note to climbers who might be hesitant, anxious, or afraid to attend: climbing is between you and the wall, not you and your belay partner. I promise you aren't holding anyone back by attending and no one will be judging you or your climbing. This is intended to be a friendly and supportive event, and I welcome climbers of all skill levels. Please don't hesitate to reach out to Alison at any time before, during, or after the event if you'd like to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about attending this event or about climbing in general.
