What should I wear and bring with me?
Wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to move freely. Avoid very short shorts, which tend to bunch up above the leg loops when you climb. People with long hair should bring an elastic band to tie it up, since it can be a safety hazard if it is long enough to fall into the belay device. It is also a good idea to bring a water bottle, though we also have a drinking fountain.
