Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.

Itinerary:

Time for some outdoor rock climbing.

While I've never personally been to Allenbrook to climb, I've never met a rock I didn't like. There are plenty of highly traveled routes at Allenbrook, well marked with the chalk, blood sweat & tears of climbers before us. This event should not be your first ever outdoor rock climbing event and if it is, please be prepared for an extended stay on the belay lines. We're out there to hit the "Beginners Route" 5.6 all the way up to the "Happy Hooker" 5.12a. Have your own harness, shoes and chalk we'll cover you on the carabiners, rope, webbing, ATC's and such. I plan to be there for a while to inspect routes, study them a bit then it's a full on assault on anything that looms over us!
Bring a small cooler with snacks, beverages (post ABFE), energy gels, sushi whatever floats your boat! It's gonna be a lil bit!
Planning on hitting as many routes as possible to include:

 

Block Direct T,TR 5.11c
Happy Hooker TR 5.12a
Afterburner TR 5.11a
Rumors Roof T,TR 5.10b
Rumors Right TR 5.10b
Levitation TR 5.10a PG13
Groove, The TR 5.8
Chode Route TR 5.7
Beginner's Route TR 5.6

Beginner's Arete TR 5.9

 

not necessarily in that order...we're starting at 10am because if you've ever been to Allenbrook's climbing area it can get kind of busy. But we'll play nice with others!
Be comfy with top roping, lead climbing, how to belay, basic climbing safety & callouts and basic climbing knot know-how.

This event will get "rain checked" if weather is not on our side!
