Rock Climbing at Adventure Rock
July 14, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
This week, we will be taking our outdoor skills indoors at Adventure Rock! Adventure Rock has climbing options for every level of interest/experience, and we will learn some basic climbing skills from Adventure Rock staff. This is a great chance to climb for free and learn a new skill, especially if this is your first time! Please see “additional info” at the end for a very important note, and be sure to RSVP.
Time: 12:30-2:30. Please note that this outing will be earlier than usual because of Adventure Rock availability, but you are welcome to stay longer than 2:30. PLEASE ARRIVE FIFTEEN MINUTES BEFORE 12:30 so that we can check in as a group.
Location: Adventure Rock (2220 N Commerce St, Milwaukee, WI 53212). There is free street parking along Commerce St. We will meet outside of the Adventure Rock main entrance at 9:50 so that we can check in as a group. If you arrive and have difficulty finding the meeting location, call or text me at 414-249-6746.
Transportation: Adventure Rock is accessible from bus route 21, which runs to the stop North & Commerce #1260, directly across from the Adventure Rock entrance. If you have additional transportation questions/needs, please contact me ahead of time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to bring: Yourself, comfortable clothing, a water bottle, snacks (optional), and climbing gear if you own it (you can borrow some if you don’t)! Make sure to wear clothing that you can move freely in. Consider bringing alternatives if you are binding in case you find your breathing too restricted. If you do not plan to borrow climbing shoes from Adventure Rock, please wear comfortable athletic shoes.
Additional info: This is SUPER important! Everyone needs to complete a waiver before climbing at Adventure Rock. You can complete this when you arrive, or before if you want to save time. You can complete the waiver here: https://adventurerock.com/visitor-agreement/. IF YOU ARE A MINOR (under 18), you will need a parent or guardian to sign your waiver. You can do this online if your parent/guardian will not be climbing with you, or your parent/guardian can sign the waiver at Adventure Rock with you. PLEASE REMEMBER, if you are under 18, you will NOT BE ABLE TO CLIMB unless you have a parent/guardian come with you, or have them sign a waiver for you before arriving. Please make sure to do this, I want to make sure everyone is able to climb!
For more info about what to expect your first time rock climbing and potential risks, please see the Adventure Rock webpage: https://adventurerock.com/about/first-time/.
Please make sure to RSVP to this event only if you are sure you will be attending. We need to know how many participants to expect! Please check your schedule and commit to this activity at your earliest convenience. We’re so excited to climb with you!
