Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Rocky Top Gym
If you haven’t been climbing in a long time and you need a refresher on how to belay and tie a figure eight OR if you’ve never been climbing at all, but you’ve always wanted to try it: this trip’s for you!
I love climbing and I love teaching new people how to climb. So, come with me to the local gym, Rocky Top, and I’ll teach you the basics of harnesses, knots, and belaying. If we have time, we will spend 30-60 minutes climbing as well. This trip is literally just the basics, so don’t join it if you know what you’re doing and you just want to climb; you’ll be bored, I promise. However, if you’ve been wanting to join one of the trips to Peak but you don’t know how to belay, this is the perfect trip for you.
I am going to be posting a trip for Saturday as well that will involve learning how to climb better for beginners. So, if you know how to belay and tie a knot, but you just want to learn how to climb better, wait to go on that trip.
I will waitlist attendees and will be putting people on the trip that have little/no experience climbing.
