Spend a day playing on the boulders at NH's famous Pawtuckaway! This park features some of the most diverse set of boulders in a gorgeous forest setting.
The tour will be hosted by one of our top boulderers who knows the grounds like it was his own backyard. We'll provide the crashpads and the local beta; you provide the psych and the trying hard!
Club MetroRock presents:
Star Wars Dance Party
Saturday, May the 4th (be with you) in Everett
10pm - 1am
Free for members/guests in costume, $5 for non-members
We decided to put all this space and the killer sound system to good use by throwing a dance party! We'll set up some cool, space themed lighting, Harpoon might drop off some bottles, the music will be bumping and we'll have an intergalactic fun time!
Costumes are not required but would definitely get you bonus points! Just make sure you can dance in your costume.
Bring your kids to MetroRock Everett for a night of free climbing and games!
This showcase of our summer camps and after school programs will introduce your child to climbing and the fun games we play at our gym. We'll have belayers on hand, the kid's ropes course will be open and we'll supply the pizza!
Welcome to Sunday School Session 3! We are very excited about this session and have changed a few things about it. We have learned a lot from the last session and we still have 4 coaches that will be ready to help you along the way. You are in for a great season of learning new training tools, meeting other motivated climbers that want to train and to get strong! Remember if you purchase the 6 session option you can come to any session you would like! If you use all 6 up before the comp and still want to attend we can work something out for you to come and crush the field!!!
MetroRock Presents: March Madness Ropes Comps! On two Saturdays in March, we will be hosting rope comps for climbers of all ages and abilities.
The first event is in Newburyport on March 16th. In the morning, the kids will take to the ropes for a USA Climbing sanctioned SCS local comp. After the dust settles and the prizes are given out, we'll open registration again for the college and adult climbers for a late afternoon CCS/adult open comp. Both comps on this date will be redpoint format--climbers can make as many attempts as they can get in the time allowed.
Two weeks later, on the 30th, we move the show to Everett for a similar but different set of events. Again in the morning, the kids run the show in a youth open (not SCS sanctioned). And again, a few hours later, the college kids and adults take to the ropes for their turn. This time around, we'll be running a flash format comp where you only get one turn per route with your high point being your final score for the route.
The full schedule and details can be found here.
You may have noticed the blue route placards going up in Everett recently. They mark routes that will be open for judging in the route setting contest starting this weekend. Who decides which routes are the winners? You do!
