Onsite Übergrippen Party

Event: Onsite Übergrippen Job Site Visit

Date/Time: Friday 5/19 from 6:30 to 10:00pm

Who's invited? Open to all CWA attendees, this event will be most beneficial for prospective gym owners or new gym owners currently in progress.

What's the deal? Übergrippen is Denver's latest modern climbing facility. They are in the final phase with wall construction & pad installation nearing completion, and this party is being held to showcase the hard work it takes to go from concept to grand opening in the coming month. Vertical Solutions and Übergrippen will don you some hard-hats, and open up the discussion for CWA members to ask anything about the process they took to get there. The goal is for you to see an active climbing gym job site and witness insider specifics on how you can construct the same thing in your market. This is truly a behind-the-scenes look at an active climbing project that will spark ideas and conversation to benefit attendees’ future projects.

The goods: Transportation, beverages, craft beer, a food truck dinner and hard hats will all be provided. This will be a very informal and small party at an in-progress job site…so expect a little bit of a mess and port-a-pottys!

The details: Space is very limited, so Vertical Solutions will be holding reservations on a case-by-case basis.
