DescriptionDo you live in the city and LOVE the outdoors? Join Durham Mappy Hour at Progression Climbing to meet likeminded people and plan your next adventure!
What's Mappy Hour, you ask? Mappy Hour got its start in NYC, but it's a nationwide movement to bring adventure-loving city-dwellers together and help one another get outside. Want to learn how to kayak? You're sure to meet someone who's out on the water every weekend. Planning your first backpacking trip? There's definitely someone drinking a beer next to you who's hiked the AT.
At THIS Mappy Hour--
A panel of awesome local climbers will talk about getting your bouldering game started indoors, and what it will take to get you outside. Will Dorinsky of Progression Climbing and Theresa D'Aquila, UNC scientist and outdoor climber-extraordinaire, will both lead a Q&A and show us how to get on the wall!
FYI: This Mappy Hour is free to attend! If you want to climb after our meetup, Progression is offering attendees a discounted gear + climbing package - $10 for everything!
Where: Progression Climbing in Chapel Hill
When: 6:30 - whenever your arms fall off
About Our Panel:
Theresa D'Aquila is a 32 year old scientist at UNC who loves to spend her free time rock climbing indoors and outside. She has been climbing since 2008 taking trips all across the country including Colorado, Kentucky, Nevada, and New Hampshire. Her favorite place to climb is at Moore's Wall in Hanging Rock State Park, which hosts some amazing traditional climbing as well as bouldering.
Will Dorinsky has been climbing for 11 years, starting in 2007 at a local gym in Raleigh called the Rock Yard. After getting a taste of gym climbing, he quickly made his way outdoors. The first place he ever climbed was Moore’s Wall, and it’s still his favorite spot: Moore’s offers bouldering, sport, and trad climbing, all within 2 hours from the Triangle!
