Some walls provide life membership for free..........
Also do you think Sharma will mind if I ask him to demonstrate some climbing for us???
> Some walls provide life membership for free..........
Which walls give out free life membership? In my experience, most walls charge an ANNUAL membership which is around the same as the MCC life membership.
If Tom Peckitt is demonstrating shoes for Evolv then I'll come along <3
