In an effort to keep up with DMC Denver's adventures, we took a trip to First Ascent, a nearby climbing gym, for February's activity fund event. First Ascent offers both indoor rock climbing and bouldering. The facility opened fairly recently in the neighborhood, and we were extremely excited to visit and give it a try.

A few of us were active climbers and took right to the walls to start climbing immediately, but most of the group took First Ascent's Learning the Ropes class. The class gave us an overview of the equipment and techniques for climbing with a top rope, including how to tie knots and properly belay down the wall. We had such a good time that we're planning another trip next month.

I'd bet we can now add "Most First Ascent certified top rope belayers" to DMC's long list of accolades.
