Monthly Climbers’ Social

Tuesday, January 1st, 2019

January 1, 2019 – The Great Down Climb Challenge

Climbinggames, competitions, prizes, FREE BEER!, and social time with friends (old and new), it doesn’t get much better than this!

The FIRST TUESDAY of every month, we invite you to be part of the Edgeworks community: meet other climbers, share stories, get tips from our staff, and have fun.

These events are also an opportunity for us to support the awesome work of our friends over at the American Alpine Club and Access Fund by providing discounted day passes to the members of either group. If you’re not already familiar with the work these two organizations do to keep outdoor climbing areas open and conserve the climbing environment we all enjoy, we invite you check them out and get involved. 

As always, our Climbers’ Social evenings are FREE! for Edgeworks members.
$10 for AAC and Access Fund members
$18 for everyone else.

Discounted day passes available after 6pm; social and activities begin at 7pm.
Join us for the FUN!


January 1, 2019 – 2nd Annual Great Down Climb Challenge
“Now, this a challenge all about how our routes get flipped turned upside down. Just let us take a minute, hang out right there. And we’ll tell you how you can avoid getting stranded in mid-air.” Instead of the routes being set with the intention of GOING UP, we’re flipping the set to be more challenging GOING DOWN.

February 5, 2019 – Partner Climbs
Team up with others
and see if together you can reach the top of one of our “Partner Climbs”! Plus, you’ll also have the opportunity to make new friends and be entered in a raffle for fun prizes with our “New Partner Challenge”.

FREE Beer! For those who are old enough, our monthly Climbers Socials also feature delicious pours from a local brewery. (Ciders and other non-alcoholic drinks also available.)



Member Spotlight: Dec 2018

Scott Thorsteinson 

Member since March 2018

How did you start climbing?

Scott: I had open heart surgery in 2015 and felt I had a new lease on life. I decided I would start hiking and climbing mountains to see the amazing scenery. As I climbed more mountains I realized I was lacking rock climbing skills. March of 2018, I went to Edgeworks and signed up not knowing anyone at the gym. It was tough at first since I was solo and limited to the auto belays.

Why do you climb at Edgeworks?

Scott: Edgeworks community is great! The climbers and staff are always friendly and helpful when I have questions. It’s also the closest gym to my house. The gym was already awesome; but with the remodel makes it even better.

What do you do when you’re not climbing?

Scott: I work as a fire captain in White Center (south of Seattle). When I’m not working I enjoy hiking, mountain climbing, boating on Lake Tapps, going to Mariner’s games, anything outdoors or that involves exercising.

Where is your favorite place to climb outside?

Scott: I’m really new to outdoor climbing. I enjoyed climbing off of Exit 38 in North Bend. The Grand Tetons had great climbing as well.

What are some interesting facts that you’d like to share with the Edgeworks community?

Scott: I no longer drink alcohol since my heart surgery so I found that working out or climbing helps reduce stress. I try to make itto Edgeworks 3-4 times a week and climb for 3 hours each visit. I carpool and climb with my friend Janice and wife Kristy when she’s not working.

What’s your go-to route grade?

Scott: I’m new to climbing as of this year but feel great about my progress. I feel comfortable with 5.10 and some 5.11’s. I’m hoping to complete a 5.12 by the end of this year. I’m motivated to get better and continue to learn from fellow climbers!

Which do you prefer: top rope, lead, or bouldering?

Scott: I really enjoy top rope over bouldering. I signed up for the December lead climbing class. My wife and friends are also signed up so it should be a fun time.
