On Sunday, December 16th, 2012 we’re holding our next Social Outcast Club—a new way for climbers to learn, socialize and share experiences about what we all love in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Join Chris O’Connell, owner of the BRG and Aleksey Shuruyev, Director/Founder of the International Rock Climbing School for the third Social Outcast gathering.
During this holiday gathering, Aleksey and fellow climbers will cover “Peanut Man,” a Rumney Classic 5.12a. And that’s only the beginning– Lisa Caldwell will be discussing nutrition for climbing, Ilya Tatar will go over “Clothing for Ice Climbing,” and Dan Alroy will talk about “Bouldering Outside: Ways Not to Break Yourself.”
As always, this event is free for members, but all are welcome! Please bring your favorite food and beverages to the potluck table. We hope that you join us as we continue this meeting in a familiar environment with new friends and faces.
Please email us, or let us know if you want to share your experiences and show your videos at one of the upcoming meetings.

Why? Because if you have young relatives from out of town staying with you – or your kids need something to do other than stuff themselves with turkey and play video games – get them to the Boston Rock Gym! They’ll be using up all that stuffing and pumpkin pie generated energy by climbing our walls instead of yours! That way, everyone will sleep better – even if it is on a pull-out couch!
Kids Climb is being offered at special times over the Holiday weekend! Wednesday, 3:30-5:30pm, Friday, 1-3pm and 3:30-5:30pm, Saturday, 10:30-12:30pm, 1-3pm, and 3:30-5:30 pm, Sunday, 10:30-12:30pm. Cost is $25 per child. Reservations and payment required at least 24 hours in advance.
