September 14 and beyond Serious Climbing. We meet at the Rock Dump to make a somewhat serious attempt to climb stronger The goal is to develop endurance by climbing lots of climbs at an easy level and supplement that with exercises intended to build strength and agility. Pete and Carl are instigating. We meet at 5:30 PM. No experience necessary. You can rent shoes and they will loan you a harness for free. If you do not have a pass the Rock Dump costs $15. All are welcome and no previous experience necessary. We are probably going to do this every Thursday if there is interest.
