Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Rocky Top Gym
Hello Again Outdoors Club
Looks like there was enough interest in an intro to rock climbing trip, so we’re going to have one afterall. We’ll meet at the side of Echols dorm on Monday at 5:30 (sorry to a couple of you who emailed me back and can’t make it on Monday!). I’m in need of another driver, so hopefully one the attendees can volunteer.
If you are looking to try something new this summer or are interested in getting into rock climbing, this trip is definitely for you! We’ll be meeting up and driving over to the local climbing gym together, where I’ll be teaching everyone the basics of rock climbing.
We will be going over the following:
1) How to belay your climbing partner
2) Climbing safety
3) Basics of climbing technique- how to move on the wall, etc.
Along with some other miscellaneous climbing stuff. Then we’ll spend the rest of the time climbing!
Costs 8 dollars; please bring cash rather than plastic. Recommended clipping your nails short beforehand. Wear something comfortable you can move around in- recommended medium length athletic shorts and whatever comfortable top. Bring water if you want. No climbing gear necessary.
