Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Peak Experiences Climbing Gym
I’m planning on taking a trip up to Peak this Friday afternoon to teach lead climbing, but the trip is also open to anyone just wanting to climb.
The idea is to go over clipping/anchoring techniques and lead belaying. Practicing in a gym is a good place to start, but Peak will only let us mock lead– so no huge whippers. Honestly, I think that’s probably for the best. At least at first. The goal is to get you comfortable with leading before you go outside and actually clip some bolts.
Leaving friday afternoon… I was thinking around 3:30, but I don’t really care if we need to leave a little later than that. Come back around 8:30, giving everyone enough time for Friday night raging afterwards.
You need to have some climbing experience. It doesn’t have to be anything crazy, but at the very least you need to be able to top rope belay. If you’re not sure if you have enough experience, just email me!
We provide transportation and gas.
You bring 14 dollars for a day pass (its not college night so no discounts…ugh)
all your climbing gear. If you need climbing gear, we will arrange something.
I’m going to waitlist everyone at first to make sure I’ve got enough drivers. Again, if you just want to go to peak for some regular ole climbing, join away!
