Gripstone’s Member Appreciation Day will be on December 10th. We want to say thank you to our members who have been a part of our journey. The party starts at 3 pm, so don’t be late. 

What to expect at this year’s party:

From 3 – 5 pm, we will host our inaugural red point rally. This is a low-key competition that is open to all ages and abilities.  There will be two categories – bouldering and sport (there are no gender-specific categories). You can participate in both, but you need to score as many points as possible. Points will be collected based on the grade of the climb. (V1 = 1 point, 5.5 = 5 points, etc). The objective is to get the most points in the 2 hours. Each winner (bouldering and sport) will win a $100 gift card for use at Gripstone – including on all retail items. Sign up at the desk on December 10th no later than 2:30pm. 

From 5 – 7 pm, we will be serving food and drinks to members only. This will include meat and vegetarian options upon request.

During this time, there will be a table tennis tournament. Whether you play regularly or are in it for the laughs, all ages are welcome to sign up for a chance to win exclusive Gripstone-themed ping pong balls. Sign up at the front desk on December 10th. 

National Geographic Explorer and Professional Climber Matt Segal will be presenting a multimedia show of some of his proudest accomplishments in the vertical world:
– Kryptonite (5.14d) at the Fortress of Solitude, CO
– First Ascents in the Wind River Range, WY
– Second Ascent of Cowboy Direct (VII 5.13a), Nameless Tower, Pakistan
After the show, Matt will be doing a short Q&A with Gripstone members at 8 pm.
We will see you there!
