Interested in the sport of rock climbing but not sure how to get started? This is the perfect event for you! Atlanta Rocks hosts a novice climb aimed at people who have never been rock climbing before. You’ll climb in a controlled environment with experienced belayers keeping you safe. Their award-winning indoor gym has 12,000 sq. ft. of climbing surface with 50 climbing stations, each of which has a range of difficulty levels.
We’ll arrive at 2:30 for introductions. Next we’ll get our shoes and harnesses. Climbing begins promptly at 3:00 and lasts until 5:00. Two to four people will be on the wall at any time. This will give you more than enough “wall time” to tire you out.
After climbing we’ll go to Fellini’s for beer and pizza.
A note about the difficulty rating: Absolutely NO climbing experience is required. However you need to be in good enough physical shape to pull yourself up a wall, obviously.
