Holiday Hours 2014
The days are getting shorter and the temperature is slowly dropping - It's that time of year again! Plan ahead for Sportrock's holiday hours and be sure to check Facebook and our website for winter weather updates!
Every year, when November arrives, we are reminded to be thankful for all that we have. Maybe we get too busy during the year (this is DC after all!) or maybe November, with all of the holiday celebrations, simply inspires us to give more. Whatever the reason, Sportrock would like to show our appreciation for our amazing family of climbers and say 'thanks' for letting us be a part of this special community.
