Boulders is proud to introduce the first night of a new concert series: Sofa Show. For its first episode, we welcome Raine Stern whose music is edged and grizzled with authenticity, blues, and funk. Her wandering jams and glittering voice will grab your soul and steer it toward a place of self-discovery and fine-point intrigue. Live music from Raine begins at Boulders at 7 pm. Be there, get climbing, and enjoy the tunes.
We all love and appreciate our local trails and natural recreation areas (without them, we’d be rockless and lost). With that love comes responsibility. For instance, every time we trip out to Devil’s Lake for a day of climbing, we romp and tromp along trails that someone took time and effort to build. Now it’s our turn to give back and pitch in. On August 3rd, Boulders Climbing Gym is teaming up with Wisconsin Climbing Association for a day of trail clean-up and maintenance. Meet at Boulders - East at 7 am to organize carpools. From there, we’ll head out to Devil’s Lake for a day of raking, scraping, and digging.
This month, Boulders will be hosting a night of trivia along with a community barbecue! Bring yourselves, your best trivia brain, and don’t forget your climbing gear! Boulders will be providing meat and vegetarian options and we encourage you to bring a dish or drinks to share!
Friday night we lace up our climbing-costume-party-dancin' shoes for some good old Boulders shindig-in'. There'll be drinks, food, games, and more - heck, we might just open up the climbing floor for a little game of dodgeball. Be sure to let us know how you feel about dodgeball.
Also, if you’re looking to re-up your membership this is the day to do it. Our annual sale is the lowest prices will ever be.
Thursday marks an historic event - Boulders members, we're going to see just how tall we can climb. We're positive we can make it to the top of Rib Mountain. We're sure we can get to the top of the Empire State Building. Heck, with a little luck, we might even clear Everest. Who's with us?!
Gear swap meets adopt-a-puppy. There might be an old pair of pants in the back of your closet that you haven't worn in years but might just get worn into the dirt by a certain pants-less soul. Bring your gear to sell, trade, or come build your gear stock. And of course cuddle up with some puppies.
Break out those headlamps, glow sticks, flashlights, glow in the dark stickers, lightsabers . . . you get the picture. We are climbing downtown with the lights people bring. Food, drink, and door prizes. Join us for a night of climbing, dancing, and meeting new climbers!
