We are excited to try our our new meeting time of 6pm on the third Thursday of the month as we are also meeting at a new location for this year at Lexington's Climbing Gym, L' Escalade Fitness. 916 N Broadway, Lexington KY, 40505

We have lots of plans for the new year including trips open to all members in the Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall! Join us to learn about those trips and don't forget to bring $10 for dues for the new year! LEF has asked that any first time visitors to their facility fill out their waver, which can be done online before you come, or once you arrive.

Please understand that attending the meeting does not give you use to climbing at the facility. If you would like to climb before or after the meeting you will need to purchase a day pass from LEF.

We welcome all new potential members and hope to see you there.
