Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Rise Up Climbing Gym
Rise-Up is a climbing gym about 75 min away in Lynchburg; it has top rope and sport climbing, but for many, its main draw is the bouldering.
Leave C-ville at 5:30pm at the side of Echols Dorm, stay til close, get some Sheetz and be back in C-ville a little before midnight
There should be a gear room at 5:15 if you need shoes
BE ON TIME– I WANT TO LEAVE AT 5:30!!
We’ll keep the attendee list to just 5 until we can get more drivers.
You bring: climbing harness if you want to climb on a rope, climbing shoes, chalk bag, $9 gym fee for group of 5 or more (else $13), water
Club provides: gear if you need it and a ride/gas reimbursements
NOTE: If you are trying to top rope at Rise Up, keep in mind you need to know how to belay on a grigri. If you don’t know how to do this don’t worry, you don’t need to know how to belay to go on this trip, there is awesome bouldering at Rise Up!
This is not an introductory trip, but experience is not required. If you haven’t been to Rise Up, you will need to fill out a waiver and watch a safety video. If you want to top rope, you’ll need to take a test to show you know how to belay with a grigri.
