      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

Free Membership for Climbing Wall Volunteers

Recommended Posts

I'm managing a 28x24 meter Entreprise climbing wall installed by Allstar Fitness at their Westlake Executive Club facility, downtown in the Medical Dental Building near Westlake Center. I'm looking for additional volunteers.

 

Duties are belaying, belay instruction, belay testing, teaching of technique, and route setting. You will be working mostly with rank beginners so your patience and psych will be important.

 

Hours available are Mon-Thurs from 5.30-8.30 (class times are between 6-8). If you would like to work on route setting you can do that anytime the gym is open.

 

In exchange for your once-a-week duties you are entitled to a free membership to Allstar which means you can use any of their facilities (Westlake, Seattle Municipal Tower, West Seattle, Tacoma). There are two other Allstar climbing walls, swimming pools, classes, steam rooms...it's a pretty plush gym and you'll have access to all the other ones. Also, to its credit, the Executive Club has a well-equipped women's only workout room.

 

Check out the facilities: http://allstarfitness.com/club_locations.htm

 

And let me know if you're interested:

I'm bumping this post. Some folks have responded to this offer, much appreciated, but I'd like to have a few more people on the roster so we have at least two people per night, some route setters, and some alternates in case someone can't make it in because they're sick or injured or leaving for Columbia University (been known to happen).

 

The gym is downtown, it's pretty darn nice, and the wall is something you could get a great pump on. Hell, you could start with a kickboxing session, followed by a climbing session, then get your crossfit set in, and finish up with a yoga session. You know, the multisport athlete.

 

And women: one of the new volunteers would like to start a women's night, which is great because most of the interest in the wall comes from female gym members.

 

Again, if you're interested:
