Rock Climbing and Making Friends
Posted March 6th, 2013 - 7:53 am by from Tianjin, China (Permalink)
I just moved to Tianjin and will be here for the next two years. I'd love to join a rock climbing gym if anyone knows where I can find that. Meeting up with a few people for a drink would also be a good way to start getting to know the city. Let me know if any of you have information on a gym or want to get a beer.

hey welcome to tj then!
I can't help with the gym, but anytime for drink:)

Sounds good. I'll get in touch with you and see what you're doing this weekend.

I'll be in town next week until July if you're looking for a climbing buddy. I need to climb!

Definitely. I'll scout out the gym that was recommended this weekend. Send me an email when you get to town.

why don't we meet somewhere for beer and go to check it out ?

Xining, I don't have a phone yet, but I am going to try and be over at the gym by 2pm today if you want to meet over there.

I cannot make it by then, sorry, but happy climbing!

Xining, I tried to find the place but all I found was a mall. Let me know when you want to go and I'll meet you somewhere. I just got a phone. The number is 18622996971.

Oh. So sorry about that. I just called the place, the number I gave is not in service and I found another number of it, got told it's already shut down. I'll call you when I found a n available one.

I found a new place, which has been confirmed available. The address is 6th Floor, Gate AB, Building C2, Xinmaokejiyuan, Nankai District(南开区鑫茂科技园C2座AB单元6层). The coordinates are 39.087596,117.123611, input the coordinates into the search box of Google Map, you'll find the location. It's free but one needs to make a reservation beforehand. It's open irregularly on weekday generally from 5:30pm. The number for reservation is 15332171777( I'm afraid you need to speak chinese to communicate with him).

Can't help with the speaking Chinese part, but I can belay like the best of them. Let me know when it works for you and I could get a student to help us out.

Thanks Xining! Chris, how about next Wednesday? Can your Chinese student friend call to see if they will be open. I can make it almost any night next week.

Posted March 21st, 2013 - 1:17 pm by from Dalian, China (Permalink)
Did you make it?

Posted March 21st, 2013 - 1:24 pm by from Portland, United States (Permalink)
Damnit all. I thought I posted on here what time you wanted the reservation at. I guess it didn't take. Sorry man, my mess f up. 18649070619 is my phone number. Text me when you want to go climbing and I can make it tomorrow.
Do you want to try and shoot for next tuesday or wednesday.

Sorry again man.

Posted March 21st, 2013 - 3:18 pm by from Dalian, China (Permalink)
No worries. I'm not in Tianjin these Days, so I cannot help with making the phone call to reserve the climbing. Here are some notes for your Chinese student friend:

I have Wednesday through Friday off this week. Do you want to try and go climbing sometime this week. Text or call: 18649070619

my roommate and i have been meaning to check out this rock climbing bar i found on the internet near where baidi rd crosses anshan xidao . . . some deal like you get to climb if you buy a drink. it sounds like one of those places that either doesn't currently exist or is otherwise really awesome, so let me know if you feel like searching for this mystery bar with us sometime. even if we don't find it we can still drink and climb things. any/everyone welcome to join.

I'm interested in finding this magical place. I'll send you a message with my details. I'm free all this week.

Posted April 2nd, 2013 - 3:16 am by from Tianjin, China (Permalink)
I'll send you two a message also. How about Thursday? That's the only day I have off.
