Yep another Rope Share is on the way!
If you have any interest in rope and live in the NYC area I cannot recommend the Rope Share enough.
It’s a great learning environment, hands on instruction, very relaxed and you can’t go wrong with my friends V (who you may have heard on The Masocast) and Delano (who I’m still bugging to let me interview him) sharing their big rope brains.
Here’s the skinny (and you can bookmark the Rope Share page here so you’re always up to date):
