Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Peak Experiences (Richmond Location) Climbing Gym
I don’t know about y’all but my brain is r o t t i n g :)))) so why not have some fun and climb until our hands bust! (I promise you can most definitely stop climbing before your hands bust if you so choose) I have only been climbing once and I have never felt physically weaker than I do right now but this is gonna be a BLAST.
We’ll be going to the Richmond location of Peak – which I’ve been to once and it’s gr8! This is my first trip leading so bear with me hoos and haas, but I think it’ll be super fun (so come prove me wrong – or right!)
Because I’ve only been climbing once I don’t think I should be responsible for teaching new climbers anything other than basic knot tying; that being said priority will be given to climbers with experience, particularly if you’ve passed the belay test at Peak! Peak has bouldering, auto belay, and regular rope climbing – many options! NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!!!
also: IF YOU HAVEN’T BEEN TO PEAK, YOU MUST FILL OUT A WAIVER, which can be found here:
https://app.rockgympro.com/waiver/esign/peakexperiences/ede4214e-312e-48c7-b9a3-d0e76d93a5de (must be 18+ or have parent/guardian sign too)
I’ll handle getting gear as needed!
–>Leave around 1:00 pm from the echols brick wall aka corner of hanncock and mccormick
–> Jam tf out in our ride there (about an hour)
–> anyone who wants to auto-belay (rope climb with no belayer) can watch the video thing and do the “test” (super easy takes like 10 min)
–> there is shoe rental there, I don’t know how many sizes we have so maybe bring some money in case you need to do that
–> climb Climb CLIMB! until we’re beat, maybe 3 hours??
–> if we wanna grub, we grub
–> auto bots roll out back to cville; return sometime between 6:30 and 7:30
