*** GENERAL MEETING ***
2060 Valley Life Sciences Building
This is the best way to find out about the club! We’ll give a presentation about what we do, where we go, and how rad climbing is. Then we’ll have RAFFLE! Everyone gets a ticket! We’ll also be selling t-shirts, throwing out FREE stuff, and giving out FREE GUAYAKI YERBA MATE while supplies last!. That’s right: a RAFFLE and FREE STUFF! This event will be held on campus, we will update this post when we know what room!
Wednesday, September 5th @ 4pm
*** CLIMBING AT INDIAN ROCK AND MORTAR ROCK ***
Meet at West Crescent for Indian/Mortar Rock 4pm to take the bus! Indian Rock and Mortar Rock are several of Berkeley’s local outdoor climbing areas! They have a wide variety of super fun bouldering, ranging in difficulty from the many very easy climbs to a few that no-one has ever done. The club has spare climbing shoes for anybody who doesn’t have any!
Thursday, September 6th @ 7pm
*** TEAM DINNER AND MOVIE NIGHT ***
We’ll be heading to La Val’s Pizza for dinner! Typically we meet the 2nd of Thursday of every month at La Val’s. These, along with our potlucks (the 4th Thursday of every month), are our regular meetings during the semester. This Thursday is special cause we’re gonna watch a ~undisclosed climbing film~ after! So come and hang out, eat some pizza or a burrito, and meet a bunch of people! We’ll migrate to 130 DWINELLE HALL around 8:30pm to watch the movie — feel free to meet us there, but seats are first come first serve!
Friday, September 7th @ 5pm
*** BOULDERING AT BRIDGES ROCK GYM ***
Bridges is Cal Climbing’s home gym! We hold a large portion of our instructional clinics at Bridges and they offer a generous membership discount to Cal Climbers. We’ll meet at West Crescent and take BART there. It’ll be really fun, and you’ll meet tons of people! PLEASE FILL OUT BRIDGE’S WAIVER ONLINE BEFORE YOU GO: https://www.bridgesrockgym.com/waiver
Saturday, September 8th @ 8am
*** TURTLE & SPLIT ROCK TRIP ***
On Saturday we’re going to Turtle/Split Rock in Marin! If you do not have your own climbing gear, don’t worry — we will be bringing extra shoes and harnesses. The club will also provide lunch and some snacks! We’ll meet at West Crescent at 8am and head out shortly after.
