Rock Till You Drop
June 23-24 we will be hosting a 24 hour climbing event benefitting the Alberta Cancer Foundation! Here's how it works: Create a team of 2-8 people who will be climbing for 24 hours straight. Each team can have 1 person climbing at a time to see how many times your team can climb to the top of the wall in a 24 hour period from 12:00pm June 23rd to 12:00pm June 24th. Teams will fundraise by gaining pledges from sponsors for each climb done in the 24 hour period. For example, if a sponsor pledges 10 cents per climb and the team climbs 300 times at the event, the sponsor will donate $30.
Only 10 teams will be able to register, so get a team together, get training, and get yourself to the front desk to register your team!
Belay buddy night
Every Tuesday night between 7:00 and 8:30 is belay buddy night, which means volunteer belayers will be here to belay for those who don't have a belay partner. This is a great night to come if you are wanting to try out climbing but haven't learned to belay yet, or if you don't have a regular climbing partner.
If you'd like to be a belay buddy, there is a sign up sheet on the bulletin board in the gym. Belayers will be compensated with a free day pass to use that night or another day.
Thursday night yoga
This is your chance to improve flexibility, core strength, and balance, all essential for climbing hard and without injury. 8:30-9:15 pm every Thursday. Cost is $5 for members, $10 for non-members, and $2 to rent a mat if necessary.
