Beginner Rock School – Sept 25th

Ascent NB is happy to announce we'll be holding our first ever Beginner Rock School this Sunday, September 25th, in Welsford! Come learn basic climbing techniques as well as how to belay and rappel safely under the close supervision of experienced rock climbers.  No experience or equipment necessary!


This full day event costs $50 for non-members and $30 for Ascent members (not a member?  you can purchase a membership here) and UNB Rock and Ice members.  ($20 of the fee is a non-refundable deposit; no refunds are permitted in the final week before the event)

Space is limited so sign up early! If we don't receive the deposit from you, then we can't guarantee your spot.

Minimum age of 14 (at our discretion).  Under 16 requires adult accompaniment. Under 19, must submit in advance a waiver signed by the legal guardian.

To register:

  1. send us your deposit by making a "Custom Membership" purchase here for the appropriate amount
  2. and please email Put "I wanna rock! - 2016 Beginner Rock School" in the subject to indicate how stoked you are to learn to rock climb!
  3. ensure you've submitted a waiver either electronically, or in person the day of the event.

All proceeds will go to help pay for Ascent NB's single largest expense, the insurance policy that our land use agreements require.

Rock School has always a great time and is a great introduction to the world of rock climbing.  The event has been33461_135594676488374_802234_n hosted successfully by UNB Rock and Ice for years, but the torch has been passed on to Ascent NB. It should go a long way towards to help achieve our fundraising efforts, but depends on participation - please help spread the word!


We'll be meeting at 10am at the end of Cochrane Lane in Welsford, NB, this Sunday.
