Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Rocky Top Gym
Climbing is pretty fun. But it’s more fun if you know what you’re doing.
Lucky for you, I will be leading an introductory trip to Rocky Top (a gym in Charlottesville) to teach the basics: basic technique, bouldering safety and basic top rope belaying. Belaying is that thing that keeps you alive and stuff.
No experience necessary! Don’t worry if you’re afraid of heights. I’m afraid of heights. That’s why there’s a rope.
Meeting at 5 on Wednesday at the brick wall beside Echols. We’ll do some learnin and then some climbing and probably a lot of tomfoolery. I would plan for an hour of two, but the trip ends whenever you want it to. We’ll talk.
Rocky Top is 10$, but we can hook you up with all the gear. You just bring comfortable clothes and general badass-ery.
