My normal partner moved out of the Springs this summer. He also had his third child this summer so climbing was sparse. Let me know if you want to go to a gym, I just don't know where to go yet.

Oh another relevant piece of information for the boulder gyms: At movement you get one free pass per month to use on anyone who hasn't been there before. At BRC you get unlimited passes to do the same thing.
- A mountain is not a checkbox to be ticked
- Alpinism and mountaineering are not restricted to 14,000 foot mountains
- Judgment and experience are the two most important pieces of gear you own
- Being honest to yourself and others about your abilities is a characteristic of experienced climbers
- Courage cannot be bought at REI or carried with you in your rucksack

Thanks 14erAddict and d_baker! I will check out CityRock, It looks like an A+ establishment from their website. I am getting sweaty palms just thinking about it. :-k

Also, I typically do Wednesdays at the Westminster City Park rec center - yes it's a short and small wall, but its made out of real stone, stacked brick style, which is great for working the fingers and crimps, plus it's always empty, and the guy who runs it lets me do the fun stuff like rappelling, practice rescues, and top belay, plus it has a chimney! (And it's only $4.25 for residents, and $6 for non)

good idea, i usually go to the BRC a few times a week. i have been digging the 8-11 pm time range. i haven't been keeping a regular schedule... mostly i ask around a few hours before. if you like climbing later at night, send me a pm, it would be cool to meet some new folks.

I Man, I know I threatened to get out and climb with you over the summer and never made it happen, but I am hoping to get back on some gym walls this winter. I'm off with a broken finger for the time being, but I typically put in a few hours (6-9, 7-10 ish) on random weeknights at RJ1 in Thornton. Out of shape with weak hand, so I will likely run toproped 5.8-5.9 and bouldering cave for a while.

Anyone up to climb at RJ2 (Centennial) tomorrow (Friday) between ~3:30 and 6:30? It turns out I need to burn a couple hours after work before the evenings's festivities. PM if interested. Thanks!
