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!

When: 6:30 – whenever your arms fall off
