Most professional networking centers around some sort of sedentary function. Let's kick this with an afternoon of bouldering!

Bouldering is wall climbing without ropes and harnesses, it can be an explosive fast sport or a calculated and methodical exercise. Either way, it is fun and allows for ample opportunity to socialize and network between climbing routes.

This networking event will start off with a quick primer on safety when climbing. Groups of 3-5 will be created for climbing routes to allow for networking, with some switching of attendees twice during the 2-hour event. If time and physical energy permits, a timed competition on a specific route may take place with the winner taking home bragging rights.

Additional Information

Attendees should wear comfortable clothing suitable for exercise and able to get climber’s chalk on.

Climbing shoes are included with the registration fee for members who have never visited BoulderHouse climbing gym. Otherwise shoe rental is the group rate of $2.00 which can be paid at the gym.
