// EVO NEWS: Headlamp Climbing, What You Should Know About the Holidays + A Sneak Peak at January

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.

GIVE THE GIFT OF UNLIMITED COFFEE
All you need is an EVO travel mug and a gift card
Yup, you read that right. You can give your favorite climbing partner unlimited coffee for a year (or more or less–you decide). We have EVO travel mugs (’cause coffee to go) in the shop and unlimited fresh coffee every morning. We also suggest you gift your partner membership, so they don’t feel weird about coming in for coffee every day–and so they can climb with you, post-coffee of course. Your partner doesn’t like coffee?!?! Don’t worry, we have other awesome gifts waiting for them in the gear shop.

PRIVATE COACHING SESSIONS W/ MADALEINE SORKIN 
Available at EVO beginning Jan 2 // email madaleines@gmail.com today
$75/hr members // Add $10 reduced-price day pass for not-yet-members
Madaleine Sorkin is an elite big wall climber known for leading up to 5.13+ on 35-pitch routes on El Capitan in Yosemite and most recently for her Reel Rock 13 film “Valley of the Moon.” What you might not know is that she’s been guiding since 2002 and works with sport and trad climbers of all ability levels to up their mental game (ex. trying hard above your last bolt or piece of gear). We’re psyched that she’s bringing her coaching to EVO, holding private sessions indoors to prepare you for outdoor (and indoor) success. Shoot her an email if you’re interested in upping your mental game.
