  • Peak Experiences - Richmond, Overbrook Road, Richmond, VA, USA


After nursing a basketball injury (yea? I BALL out) for some time, I can finally climb again. After climbing at Slaughter for a week, I figured it would be a nice change of pace to gingerly dangle from a rope when I inevitably fall off that 5.7 I’ve been working on rather than face-planting into that stinky mat (or the newbie that walked under me while I was going for the crux move). What a better place to do so than good ole peak!!!

And I know what you’re thinking, “Burke (and Eliza), seriously? climbing inside when it’s going to be a balmy 54 and partly cloudy out? What is this the indoors club?” Fret not young lovers of the outdoors. Post send, we will be moseying on over to Belle Isle for a lovely picnic by the river.

Here’s the skinny:
10:00 am Leave from Echols dorm
11:15 am Arrive at peak and start climbing
2:30 ish pm You can no longer lift your arms higher than your shoulders so its time to leave.
3:00 pm Picnic for an hour or so
4:00 ish pm head back to cville
5:30 pm study for that midterm on Monday

What ya need:
– Belay device (available at the gear room or for rental at Peak)
– Climbing Shoes (available at the gear room or for rental at Peak)
– Harness (available at the gear room or for rental at Peak)
– Chalk (for climbing, not coloring)
– H2o
– Snacks and picnic foodz
– $10 for day pass at peak
– picnic things (Blankets, frisbees, hacky sacks, musical intstruments, tunes, etc.)
– a warm layer, its only gonna be 54 degrees

What we might bring for you (don’t count on it):
– picnic blankets
– a frisbee
– some of Eliza’s nalgene water
– smiles

Believe it or not, this trip is not for pro climbers only! Anybody and everybody is welcome, although people who can belay will get priority off the waitlist.

If you have never been to Peak before you should FILL OUT THIS WAIVER so that you can start climbing as soon as we get there!

We need DRIVERS!!! People who can drive get priority off the waitlist, gas reimbursement + 50% tip, and infinite clout. Please show up to Echols with a full tank of gas.
