Participant Information

Indoor Climbing at the Richmond OvalLet's visit the indoor climbing wall at the Richmond Oval and climb some of the 45+ routes set for climbers of all levels and abilities.  Some of the routes are 40ft high and there are two auto-belay devices on shorter routes for solo climbing.

I will be there from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm.  If you don't already know me, you ask at the climbing desk for the BCMC group, or contact me beforehand, or just look for a 6ft tall guy wearing black shirt and pants with VERY short hair.

If you have not climbed at the Richmond Oval climbing gym, you will need to pass a belay test (or a lead climbing test if you want to lead or lead belay) -- this is a requirement of the gym.  While it is likely that the more experienced climbers will be happy to share some of their knowledge, please keep in mind that this is not a climbing course. 

Note that BCMC members are eligible to receive a discount so make sure you ask for it when paying.  To learn more about club discounts, visit the BCMC Membership Benefits webpage.
