Younger Members Who Boulder Together Stay Together
Saturday, November 10th,  5:00 PM
Wednesdays, around 5:30 PM

Get active with your fellow engineers and try out bouldering! Bouldering is a great full body work out and no knowledge of harnesses or fancy knots is required. A group of engineers has been meeting up at SBP already and are looking for some more people to join on a more regular basis. To get things going, there will be a kick off event on Saturday, November 10th at 5:00 PM. A beginners class is at 5:30, and the class and shoe rental are free with the purchase of a day pass for first timers. 

Contact Leo Moyer at  to RSVP for the Saturday kickoff. Questions about bouldering, ask our expert, Eric @ . SBP's website:
