Just climbing!
Posted February 16th, 2011 - 7:11 pm by from Stirling, Scotland (Permalink)
Hey friends of the great outdoors,

since some of us recently got into a certain stage of planification for climbing, I wanted to push things a little bit more in the right direction! :D

My suggestion as far as time: upcoming Sunday, Feb 20 around 11 am.

Who can recommend a place to go?! What about the cliffhanger gym by the Main St Skytrain station?
Day-Pass would be 18$ (without renting gear).

Hope we get things started soon!! ;)

Cheers!
Ron

Yes! I am interested. I will skip my Ultimate game that morning if people are going climbing.

Hey

might be in too on Sunday if nothing serious comes in between. I usually go to the Main Street Cliffhanger even if I don't like it too much. BTW if you have a student ID it's 10%off. And if it is your first visit the gear rental is for free, just ask them.

For further climbs, as I have a car now, we could also go somewhere else. There are upcoming introduction and intermediate movement classes at the Edge in Noth Van. The beginners class is for free (you just pay the day pass) I really liked it.

I would love to go to the next intermediate movement class on Feb 22nd. We would have to preregister on there website. There are 5 spots remaining. It is 23.00 CAD including day pass for non-member. Somebody wanna join me for that too?

BTW everybody needs to pass a belay teat in all the gyms before you climb the fortst time.

belay test I mean of course :D

Posted February 18th, 2011 - 2:23 am by from Stirling, Scotland (Permalink)
hey, that would be a little crowd already! ;)

hope some more will join us.

I'm afraid I won't make it to the intermediate course even though I am really stoked to do it. I just won't have the time.

See ya on Sunday!

So should we all meet in front of the gym then? Can everybody belay at all?


Posted February 18th, 2011 - 5:29 am by from Stirling, Scotland (Permalink)
yeah let's meet in front of the gym around 11am.
I know how to belay in several ways...just don't know what they are asking us to demonstrate... . ;)

Posted February 18th, 2011 - 6:00 am by from Calgary, Canada (Permalink)
I haven't belayed in a while but I'm sure I will remember!

See you guys there on Sunday around 11AM.

Posted February 18th, 2011 - 6:57 pm by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
Oooh, I'm gonna tag along! Have been climbing at Cliffhanger's for awhile with my roommate but I'd love to meet more people in the climbing community. I'd be happy to belay and give pointers :D

See you Sunday at 11!

Climbing last time was pretty fun!

Therefore we decided to go again on Saturday, Feb 26 at 11 am.
Location is the same as last time: Cliffhanger Gym at Main Skytrain, Industrial Ave.

Let us know who is in!

Take care!
Ron

Think I will be there. Can pick you up this time if you want

Posted February 24th, 2011 - 2:27 am by from Stirling, Scotland (Permalink)
Hey Cathleen, yeah that would be awesome! ;)

Jeremy, what about you?!?!? Are you in?

Posted February 24th, 2011 - 8:16 pm by from Calgary, Canada (Permalink)
Yup, see you guys there.

Posted February 24th, 2011 - 2:35 am by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
If this becomes an on-going thing I would totally be into going. I can't this week, but I hope to see this happening again if there are people interested. Climbing is such a great way to burn off some energy.

Wade.

ups...that's awkward now! I think I cannot make it tomorrow.

Hope you have fun. Let me know if there will be another climbing meeting next Saturday, cause I'd be definitely in.

Take care!
Ron

Yay, this Saturday Jesus and me are in! See you guys tomorrow at the cliffhanger at 11am.

Jeremy, looking forward to seeing you again and Cathleen looking forward to getting to know you!

Sorry, I just talked to Jeremy and I will not come either. Getting a cold and don't wanna risk to get really sick.

But have fun guys

Posted February 26th, 2011 - 5:52 am by from Calgary, Canada (Permalink)

I'll go climbing with a friend at the Main Street Cliffhanger tomorrow (Thursday) at 6.30pm. So if you feel like an evening climbing workout, just join us

Posted March 15th, 2011 - 5:28 am by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
March 16th afternoon
There is a few to go climbing at the Cliffhanger close to the Main Street/ Sciene World Skytrain Station tomorrow.
Don't know the time yet, so you can send me a PM in the morning with your cell number and then I can tell you when we meet there. It will be early afternoon.
Would be sweet to get in a couple CS ers as well!
Ciao

Wow, i thought I am spontanious when posting a day earlier:-) Thanks for sharing, Aaron! Next time just open a new post with the date, I guess it draws more attention. There will most likely be an afternoon climb going on this week. Would you be interested?
