Looking for something to jazz up your Friday evenings? R.O.P.E. sponsors Friday night indoor climbing trips to Texas Rock Gym! Each member of the group will get to spend over two thrilling hours scaling walls at his/her own pace. Whether you've never climbed or climb on a daily basis, all students are invited to join us. Bouldering, top-rope, and lead climbing are available, and all skill levels are welcome (gym certification required for lead climbing).
Trip cost is $5.00 and includes transportation, climbing harness and shoe rental (sizes are available on a first come first serve basis). Particpants will pay for entrances fees at the gym. If this is your first time climbing, participants will need to pay $10.00 at the gym for a one-time belay and safety class. Experienced climbers may request to test out of belay class at gym.
