Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Rocky Top Gym
This trip is especially for beginner climbers, but I would like at least 1 other person who really knows what he (or she) is doing to help with teaching.
I’m pretty much a beginner myself, but I’ll teach you how to tie an 8-knot, the correct belay language, how to check a climb and how to hook into a climb. Also there’ll be some fun off-rope bouldering stuff to try out. Rocky Top Gym is a great place to do all that.
You’ll need to bring: long shorts/pants, cut your nails super short, lots of enthusiasm, little bit of water, some kind of a sustaining snack or dinner item (climbing is hungry work!), $7 in cash (day pass) or $25 for a month pass
Club provides: gear and a car ride
