Informal Climbing Nights at Vertically Inclined Rock Gym (VIRG) EVERY THURSDAY EVENING AT 8:30PM

Join fellow ACC members for an informal Top Rope and Lead Climbing night at VIRG (Vertically Inclined Rock Gym). 

Jackie will be on the main floor by the stairs meet the group there at 8:30pm. If you're late just look for Jackie (the friendliest person ever with dreads sprouting out of her head).

We will climb as a group / break into groups based on skills and objectives. 

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR BELAY / LEAD BELAY CHECKS AT VIRG ALREADY - this allows us to spend the night climbing and not getting people sorted out with safety checks.

Jackie will lead stretching afterwards to keep us all limber and hopefully injury free!

VIRG is not offering this as a member's night for us - all rates / fees apply. VIRG offers rentals for shoes, harness and chalk bags if you require these. If you are a first timer to VIRG you will need to do a waiver and a belay check - the belay check must be done before coming to one of these events.
