Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Rise Up Climbing Gym
Let’s check out the brand new climbing gym in Lynchburg! It takes about the same time to get there as Peak Experiences gym in Richmond.
It is smaller than Peak, but has 16 top ropes, dedicated lead walls, and large bouldering section including top-out bouldering problems. We will all be tested for belaying. For doing top ropes, they have fixed Petzl Gri-Gri belay devices on each rope.
After we climb until 10:00, I will be asking everyone to give me some feedback about the gym so that we can maybe cut some kind of a deal with them if we like the gym.
I don’t plan on switching over to this gym on thursdays as my loaylty is still with Peak. I am just trying to scope it out just for this week. This gym might be a really good place to go on days other than thursday.
Please email me with any questions or concerns. If you are up for some exploring of this new gym, please be at Echols promptly at 5:15 if you need to borrow any gear, and 5:30 otherwise.
