Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Peak Experiences Climbing Gym
Well hello there! This is usually where you read a sick blurb about what rock climbing is and why you should join this trip…Instead, why not find out for yourself by joining us this Monday? Or you can google Ashima Shiraishi. Both are good.
Plan: Meet in front of Echols to travel to Richmond’s [finest] climbing gym, climb for many hours, or until Peak closes at 10. Arrive back in Cville by 11:30.
If you have never been to Peak before: you must pass the belay test!
If you do not know how to belay, you must sign up for the class. It’s $20, call to reserve a spot: 804 897 6800! We should arrive on time to make the usual class at 6:30. Once you take the class, you can get belay certified as early as the next day AND get a two week free trial membership. Pls call.
If you are new to climbing, but not belay certified? Two options: bouldering, or taking the belay test and get certified. More info on their site.
If you need gear, hit up the gear rooms. We’ll leave at 5 sharp.
You need to bring:
Climbing specific shoes
$10 for climbs
The club reimburses gas + a tip, so please drive. <3
