Night Moves Vol III: The Summer Solstice

You asked for it ... so we're bringing it back.

Come celebrate the start of summer and the longest day of the year, as we bring back Night Moves for Vol. II: The Summer Solstice.

The same rules apply as Volume I: lights are going off, and the music is turning up. We’re welcoming back our resident DJ Jordan Rock, and adding in a few extras this time:

  • Beers on the Mezzanine
  • Climbing Games
  • Raffle & Door Prizes 
  • Dyno Derby

Headlamps are mandatory for Lead Climbers and Belayers (headlamps will not be provided) – everyone else just needs a glow stick!



Will it be as dark as last time? That's the goal - we'll be blocking out windows, and turning off all the lights. As with last time, the gym will glow with dim floodlights, glowsticks, string lights and other ambient sources. Without a headlamp, you may find it difficult to differentiate different hold colours in certain parts of the gym.

Do I need a headlamp? All lead climbers and lead belayers are required to provide and wear their own headlamp, but they are not mandatory for top roping or bouldering. However, we'd recommend headlamps if you're concerned about differentiating hold colours or if you have existing vision problems.

Do I get ANOTHER free glowstick? YOU SURE DO! All climbers will be required to wear a glowstick or two throughout the night make it easier to spot others on the wall or on the ground. Hang it on your chalkbag or wear it around your wrist, just make sure you don't lose it!

Is anything closed for the event? The yoga studio will still have their normal lights on, and all classes will run as scheduled. The only closure will be the free weights area on the mezzanine. 

Can I get a lead test during the event? No. Lead tests will not be available while the lights are out. All lead test must be scheduled in advance, and availability is limited! See our Lessons & Tests page for full details.
