Introduction to climbing ( co-ed)

Thursdays 7:00pm-8:00pm

Rock climbing can be a frustrating and intimidating sport to get into if you don't have someone to guide you through the ins and outs of climbing.  Aika is here to be your guide and develop your climbing skills to make it a much more productive and enjoyable activity.

During each clinic Aika will assess your individual climbing ability and create an activity or exercise based on your strengths and weaknesses in order to push you to the next level.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced climber this a great way to make friends and feel
confident next time you come to the gym!


Co-ed Bouldering Clinic

Wednesdays 7:30pm – 8:30pm
Taught by Christopher Lopez


New to the sport of bouldering? Want to take your climbing to the next level? Stuck on that one cave problem? Come join us for our weekly Co-ed Bouldering Clinics, held every Wednesday evening in MPHC’s extensive bouldering room.

We’ll cover techniques for every skill set and level, as well as basics of bouldering safety and training.

Christopher Lopez has been climbing since the spring of 2010. Bouldering is his preferred style of climbing, having climbed in various different areas throughout New York as well as taking trips to Joe’s Valley, Utah and The Stone Fort in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

His dedication to the sport and teachings on bouldering at his local climbing gym has made him a mainstay in the New York City climbing community. He was recently featured in the newly released NYC Bouldering Guidebook sending “The Scratching Post,” a V3 boulder problem on Cat Rock in Central Park.

  • All clinics are free for members and day pass climbers!
