Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Rocky Top Gym
So a lot of people are eager to learn about climbing and belaying which makes me happy! That said, if you don’t get on this trip, i will probably be leading one next week as well.
Why is this important?
In my mind, if you are trying to get into climbing, starting by going to Peak (which is what is did for my first year) and having a blast on their routes is the way to go. In order to go though, you must know how to belay because the first thing you must do is take a belay test. So pay attention if you sign up!
This class will be mostly focused on belaying, but Andrew Cassidy and I will throw out some good climbing tips to make it much easier!
-Meet at echols at 515
-head to Rocky Top
-go over belaying and technique
-keep climbing till you are pooped and head home
Preference will be given to drivers
I will get all the gear for you, just tell me your size!
YOU WILL NEED TO PAY $10 entrance fee as a student (tell them you are student even if you are not!)
I recommend wearing long shorts for guys and yoga 3/4 pants for girls, but any athletic clothing will do!
see you soon!
