It's time for 14ers.com members to Storm The Spot! Anyone else find the $40 Psychedelia fee to be a deterrent? Well, there's still time to check out the comp problems! We're planning to hit The Spot at 6pm tonight--JOIN US! With a strong enough showing, maybe we can overwhelm the "normals."

I climb at Movement. I have a friend that keeps telling me he'll teach me how to lead, but he initially said that in early July and here it is October and I have had zero experience. That being said, I typically go Monday/Thursdays and another day or two just to lift and/or boulder. However, I don't go more often simply for a lack of partners and/or the partners that are available aren't interested in either top-roping or teaching me how to lead. So, if anyone wants to go, or already has a membership, and is either willing to top rope or teach me how to lead I'm definitely down to have more climbing partners. FWIW, depending on the route, and how I feel on a given day, I can do (maybe only 1-3/day) 11a/11b's clean and typically have been climbing in the 10b-d range with trying to build up some endurance as my usual sessions, mostly I think because I got so used to bouldering and going all out because of other partners lack of time, are 1-2.5 hours.

If anyone wants to climb at CityRock in CO Springs during weekday evenings, I try to go there about once a week.

Kerry - I might be willing to drive down some weeknight as I haven't been there. I am also curious about the dry tooling.

Climbed at Movement for the first time last night. I think I might like BRC better, but Movement did have a lot to offer (like WAY WAY over-rated routes to inflate the ego :lol: )

Back to the home base of ThrillSeekers tonight - 7pm with a large group for anyone interested.

I'll be at R&J1 tomorrow night (after 6), and CityRock in the springs on saturday afternoon (after 4) for their ice night.

If anyone wants to climb with me at either, pm me.

Earth Treks Climbing Centers is thrilled to announce that we’re coming to Golden Colorado! Founded in 1990, Earth Treks operates three premier indoor climbing centers in Maryland including Earth Treks Rockville, which boasts the largest climbing wall in the nation. That’s right; Earth Treks is saddled up and headed west to the Rocky Mountain state!

Slated to be open in late 2013, Earth Treks Golden’s 29,000 sq ft building will be built from the ground up. After more than 15 years of running climbing gyms, we’ve learned a lesson or two about what makes a climbing gym great. First we’ll start with over 25,000 sq. ft. of climbing with walls up to 48 ft high, including tons of bouldering and roped climbing for all ages and abilities. Next we’ll add key amenities like a huge fitness center, dedicated strength training area, yoga facilities, and locker rooms with all the bells and whistles. Finally we add our commitment to excellent customer service and a welcoming climbing community. At Earth Treks, it’s our mission to “share our passion for climbing,” and we are thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to deliver on that promise in Golden.

About the wall: We encourage you to look at our gyms in Maryland for hints about where we are headed on design. We are committed to delivering a next generation gym, evolving from 15 years of customer feedback and extensive consultation with route setters, competition climbers and gym owners. A great gym starts with thoughtful design, but allows for continuous renovations. All of our gyms have been expanded and/or renovated in the past few years. Our Rockville, MD gym has over 38,000 sq. ft. of climbing walls. While size isn’t the most important thing, great route setting and varied terrain help keep our members happy.

Location, location, location. Earth Treks Golden is just 15 minutes from downtown Denver and conveniently located near the intersection of Rt. 6, I-70 and C-470. The new Golden light rail station due to open this winter is less than a ten minute walk away. Before we are even open, the city will be constructing pedestrian paths and a bridge that will take you right to our door. The gym will have ample parking—whether you arrive by car or bike.

Earth Treks expects to break ground in March.

Keep tabs on all the exciting developments as they unfold at http://www.earthtreksclimbing.com and the Earth Treks Golden Facebook Page
