Ahh the New Year... 2007 that is...

By Alissa McClusky

With the New Year comes those good ol' resolutions of loosing weight, becoming a better person, saving money, in with the new out with the old and so on and on and on.

As the monsoon season comes into full swing so does the indoor climbing season and Edgeworks is welcoming new members and guests everyday. The climbing community has built a great atmosphere around the gym and they want to share it with everyone (you). Every night there are people who are looking for climbers to rope up with or share a boulder session with.

With all the new climbers and staff waiting for you, come on in and say, "Hi!" I bet they'll beat you to it!

Thought this article was going to be about New Year's resolutions... Nope. Just an invitation to stop by and see what is going on for the night, take a belay class or purchase a membership.

New Routes Everyday!

It's a new route party! The Edgeworks Route Setting Staff keeps putting them up and you keep cranking them down! Don't miss out on new routes everyday!

Come and be the first of your friends to say,
"I've climbed it! This route is easy! =)"

Here's a sample of routes you should try:
Section 6:
5.8 - Bad Hair Day (around the arete to the left)
5.11c - Renegade (a power crimp layback!)

Section 10:
V1 - Drop The Right (can you drop a knee?)
V3 - Viva La Top Out (a fun top out route)

Section 11:
V2 - Slippery Slopes (dyno to the sloper)
V6 - I Like Your Bangs (overhang and crimp hard!)
