Aiguille End-of-Summer Updates

By Kayla Baker

Wow, has this summer gone by fast or what? It feels like just yesterday it was the Fourth of July. But even though the summer is coming to a close, I'm sure all you good students out there can't wait for classes to start back up soon! Aiguille's summer hours will be changing again shortly, so keep an eye out for our opening hours to be a little bit later during the week. 

We also still have some awesome climbing gear, including chalk bags, left over from the Used Gear Sale last weekend, as well as some new gear you can check out at the front counter, such as our new line of brightly colored Organic brand chalk bags and chalk buckets. Don't hesitate to ask any of our Aiguille employees to show you some gear at awesome prices that you cannot beat.

Speaking of things you can't beat, Aiguille definitely beat the heat last week at the Heat Wave Summer Party. You can check out the amazing pictures on Aiguille's Facebook taken by none other than the beautiful and talented Aubrey Wingo! From Water Balloon Tosses and Hula Hoop Contests to the Slip n' Slide, and great food at the BBQ, it was definitely not an event to miss. And hey, let's not forget about all of the brand new top rope, lead, and boulder problems that the route setters worked so hard on for Aiguille's climbers.

This week is also Aiguille's last week of Climbing & Challenge Summer Camp, so for all you parents out there looking for a last minute summer idea for your kids, come check out Aiguille's Summer Camp for an experience they will never forget. You can find our registration forms and waivers online at, or just come on in for more details.

Last but definitely not least, Aiguille now has a brand new Mobile Website that can be found through any smart phone, thanks to Guillermo. Just type in either or on your mobile device to be directed to the site. It is an extremely easy and straight forward way to find our waiver, contact information, hours, and much more! You can also test it out by scanning any one of our purple QR codes, like the one on the Introduction Stand when you walk in the front door.

I hope everyone had a great summer, and with only a couple weeks left until school starts, make sure you get as much climbing in as possible before you have to actually do......homework.

Remember, if you have any questions about new or used gear, changing hours, or Summer Camp, feel free to ask any of our employees!
