Extra Open Climb Days at Earth Treks Timonium

Mark Your Calendars!

We’ve added a few additional Open Climb days at Earth Treks Timonium from September through December 2014.

If you have always wanted to try climbing but don’t know where to start, this is a perfect way to get you started.

Extra Open Climb Days (Earth Treks Timonium) – Sept-Dec 2014

  • Sept 25:  12pm to 4pm

What is Open Climb?
Open Climb is a great way to come in and try out climbing. You don’t need any reservations, it’s perfect for all ages, and no experience is necessary. The open climb pass includes 3 climbs, a harness rental, and an Earth Treks instructor to lead your climbing experience. Three climbs will give you a great taste of climbing, but if you enjoyed them so much you want to try more that day, they’re just $5 each. It’s that simple!

All climbers under the age of 18 must have our Release of Liability and Assumption of Risks Form signed by a parent or court-appointed legal guardian, or they will not be permitted to climb in any Earth Treks program.

Please limit your group size to five or fewer. Larger groups may be better served by booking a private climbing party.

EVENT DETAILS

WHAT IS THE SETTER SHOWDOWN?
The Setter Showdown is a routesetting competition, only the second of its kind (the first being the Kingdom Games that took place last year in California). Each setter will set three boulder problems, over three rounds of setting. Each will set an easy, medium and hard problem. www.settershowdown.com

WHO’S PUTTING IT ON?
Earth Treks has partnered with climbing industry icon and creator of the Kingdom Games, Louie Anderson to put on this event. Louie has been setting, hold shaping, and building climbing walls since the industry started.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
24 route setters from all over the East Coast  have been invited to come and set boulder problems that will be judged in three ways: industry experts, other setters, and last but most importantly our members.

WHEN DO WE GET TO VOTE ON THE ROUTES?
Members will then have the chance to vote on the winning boulders between 10 & 2 on Saturday the 6th.

WHAT ABOUT THE VENDOR VILLAGE AND BBQ?
Not only do members get to help judge the setting competition but they also will be treated to shoe demos, a vendor village, and free food.   Oh yeah, and beer, FREE BEER!!!
