Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Peak Experiences Climbing Gym
Yer damn right it is. Virginia still isn’t blessed with the robustness, convenience, and environmental and economic benefit of a quality intrastate light-rail rapid transit system.
Until such time as one exists, I guess we’ll just have to drive to go climbing.
Y’all know the drill: Leave Echols at 5:30pm, pop on over to the suburban sprawl of greater Richmond, Va and our favorite indoor climbing center, Peak Experiences, fire the ol’ ropegun for a few hours, and return home, satisfied and ready for a toasty Michelob Ultra (hey, I don’t judge you for YOUR beer preferences).
No experience necessary for this trip! Peak Experiences is a great place to go climbing for your first time or your 1000th.
