New Outdoor Climbers Forum

*Space is extremely limited and please only RSVP if you are coming*

Are you an indoor climber looking to start outdoor climbing in 2017 summer, don’t know where to start and have lots of questions?

🙂 Let us help you.

We have prepared a panel of experienced climbers who start from scratch just like you, through a variety of methods, and eventually rampage rock, snow, ice and the alpine like you see on magzine cover.

In this wonderful evening, you will be able to ask them questions, get their contacts for future questions and meet other like-minded climbers to meet more climbing partners for summer 2017!
