Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Rise Up Climbing Gym
Everyone knows that winter is bouldering season. Winter is also cold and miserable sometimes, which is why we have climbing gyms to make us happy, stronger and more well-rounded. So join me for Rise Up in Lynchburg this Saturday!
I’m going to stick to bouldering exclusively on this trip, but they also have a toprope/lead wall available for anyone who already has the knowledge and equipment to toprope or lead. Just keep in mind that there WILL NOT be any belay instruction on this trip.
In order to go bouldering, all you need is climbing shoes and a chalk bag, which can be rented at Rise Up for a few bucks extra. If you plan to toprope or lead, you’ll also need a harness and ATC.
As long as we have at least 5 climbers, the entrance fee is $9 (otherwise it’s $13). Bring a little extra cash for food afterwards as we might stop somewhere. Priority goes to drivers…and remember, the club will pay for your gas!
