      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Intro Class

Recommended Posts

I'm going to take an introductory class at Stoneworks, but was wondering if anyone's got any thoughts on them or their classes?


It's the closest gym to me, but I was wondering if it's worth the extra drive to PRG or Club Sport. Actually, it seems like Club Sport is really expensive :P can anyone give me a ball park figure on their membership and if it's worth the cost?


Also, I'm getting into rock climbing mostly for fitness' sake and the beginning course seems ideal to learn the basics, but if I find that I really like it and want to take it to the next level, how does one go about finding a partner to practice with? Or can I solo it? I don't know anyone who climbs - at all. Well, one, but he's more like an acquaintance.

the stoneworks intro class is a great deal. for the portland area, i would recommend that class even if it wasn't the closest gym to you.

you get a free month membership with gear rentals, so you have time to go back and figure out if you're really going to be into it.


regardless of which gym you go to, you can always go back on your own without having a partner. just boulder to get a good workout, and/or meet other people there to trade belays with.

as long as you're friendly and easy-going, some of those people can turn into more regular partners if you stick with it.
