Monday Night Bouldering w/ Climb Nova Scotia

When: Mondays. Continues through Aug. 29 2011

If you're afraid of climbing mountains after seeing *Cliffhanger* a few too many times, but sick of the indoor rock wall scene, Climb Nova Scotia has the answer. Every Monday for the rest of the summer, groups of experienced and beginner climbers will be meeting at St. James Anglican Church (2668 Joseph Howe Drive at the Armdale) to set off for Monday Night Bouldering, an event that involves climbing without a rope or harness on top of massive rocks nestled in the Halifax wilderness. For those looking for a new exercise, Mick Levin, President of Climb Nova Scotia, says that the activity is an easy sport for newbies. “If you can walk up a flight of stairs, you can come to Monday Night Bouldering,” he says. The crew sets off at 6pm sharp, so Levin recommends coming fifteen minutes early to meet up with fellow climbers who will then carpool to locations around the HRM. And as far as gear is concerned, Levin says your best bet is to bring a pair of climbing shoes and warm clothes for when it's cold. “Even if you just wanted to see a new part of the country,” he says, “It's a great opportunity.” – Matthew Ritchie
