Rocky Mountain Climbing Gym 10721 West Valley Road SW
If you are feeling a bit rusty fear not, the plan is to work on our belaying, climbing and "reading" the route. It doesn't matter if you are a newbie, regular climber, or you crush 5.11's you are welcome to join in.
The #1 goal is safety; #2 having fun; #3 meeting new friends; #4 climbing.
Required Items to Bring:
Harness, rock shoes or not (personally I like all the help I can get), belay device, locking carabiner. All of which can be rented there.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Shorts, T-shirt, water, and a hearty snack. If you don't get time for dinner, food can be purchased there.
How to Get There:
I won't lie, with all the construction around 16th Ave it is a real pain in the posterior to find the gym if you are going there for the first time.
Basically head West on 16th Ave; take the Right-hand turnoff for Valley Ridge; go around the Traffic Circle; take 7th Ave (crossing under 16th Ave); Left/East at "T"on 1st Ave ; around the Traffic Circle; West on West Valley Road; gym is on the Right. I would strongly recommend you have a look on good old Google Maps.
Please send me a very brief statement about your belaying for both top roping and lead ie: "I'm a bit rusty", or " I'm ok", or "I'm rock solid 100%"
It is totally NOT COOL to cancel at the last moment. Myself and other coordinators have heard all the excuses, so if you are not serious about attending don't sign up.
*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non- recoverable costs).
