Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Peak Experiences Climbing Gym
Thursday Peak is something of a tradition for the outdoors club, despite the irony of being inside. Peak Experiences Climbing Gym: http://peakexperiences.com/ (simply known as Peak) is a climbing gym by Richmond (in Midlothian) with over 125 routes for top rope and lead climbing, as well as a bouldering area.
Since the weather isn’t favorable for climbing outdoors, Peak is looking great to me. If you’re new to climbing (e.g. if you don’t know how to belay) this is not the trip for you – there will be beginner trips soon enough! If you know how to belay, but have not been to Peak before, you will need to call ASAP and set up a time to take the belay test (7pm or 7:30pm should work). Their number is: 804-897-6800
If you need gear, there is a gear room at 5:00pm tomorrow. Otherwise show up at 5:30 by the side of Echols (same place as for gear room). We’ll depart from Echols, arrive at Peak around 7pm, climb until they close (10pm), and stop by Sheetz before returning to Charlottesville (~11:30pm)
> Gear if you have it

> Gas $ and rides
I will waitlist everyone to begin, so as to ensure we have enough drivers (drivers will get priority).
