// EVO NEWS: Give the Gift of Climbing + Why You Should Climb in the Dark

GIVE THE GIFT OF CLIMBING
And end your holiday shopping stress with EVO Gift Cards
Procrastinating holiday shopping again this year? We got you with gift cards for your friends, family, coworkers and even yourself. Order online or chat with the front desk crew for suggested amounts for first-time climber packages, membership and other creative bundles. Think giving just a gift card is lame? We have supplemental stocking stuffers and new EVO swag in the gear shop.

KEEP CALM + SEND: MENTAL TACTICS FOR PERFORMANCE
Monday, Dec 3 // 6:30 – 8:30p // $30 members // $40 not-yet-members
Controlling your headspace, intentional breathing and increasing your confidence can be the difference between sending your project and having yet another “no-send Sunday.” Learn mental tactics for projecting and redpointing climbs that will allow you to maximize the strength you’ve gained training in the gym.

INTRO TO TRAINING: STRENGTH
Monday, Dec 10 // 6:30 – 8:30p // $30 members // $40 not-yet-members
Want fingers of steel? We thought so. Learn the best ways to train climbing finger strength for long term success (not injury!), whether you’re new to hangboarding or have dabbled in several programs and are looking for guidance on the best techniques and training plan for your goals.
Recommended for those who have been climbing consistently for 1+ years.

SPEED CLIMBING CLINIC
Wednesday, Dec 12 // 6p – 8p // $10 members // $15 not-yet-members
Chances are you only just heard about speed climbing thanks to Reel Rock 13, and now you’re psyched. Good thing Sienna Kopf, one of the top youth speed climbers in the country, is here to show you the beta–she’s also donating clinic proceeds to the Access Fund.

CLOSING EARLY FOR STAFF PARTY
Saturday, Dec 15 // Closing at 5p
We’re taking our staff out to dinner to say thank you for all their hard work this year and because we have a feeling they’ll be psyched for free food.

HEADLAMP CLIMBING NIGHT
Friday, Dec 21 // 7p – Close // FREE with membership or day pass
We’re fully embracing the short, dark days of winter and celebrating the winter solstice by turning out the lights. (Okay, the exit lights will be on, because lawsuits). Bring your headlamp and a friend or two to crush in the dark and get excited for longer days ahead.

MEMBER PERK: EXTENDED HAPPY HOUR AT REDGARDEN
ALL EVO Members // 3p – 9p // Every Tuesday
$4 house beers and appetizer deals just for you, our awesome members. There will also be tacos–cause Tuesday. Bring your EVO scan card next door and enjoy.

FOOD DRIVE THANK YOU
Many thanks to everyone who participated in our annual food drive
When we said we wanted to collect a ton of food, we were thinking 2,000 pounds. Y’all had a different idea. 8,000 pounds of food later…you quadrupled our goal and set the all-time record for most food donated in a single Community Food Share drive (and they’ve been doing this for over 30 years). To say our community is awesome would be an understatement. Thank you.
