Itinerary:

Climb On!
Are you ready to get climbing outdoors? If so, join me. 
Test out your Top Rope + Bouldering skills on some of the nicest routes around. We'll set up our top ropes and rappel down to an area where we can also walk down to and set up for the day. I have 2 ropes that can be used so if you plan to join us and have a rope, please bring it...more the merrier. As far as climbing I will be doing top roping & bouldering, but if you have sport/trad climbing experience and gear I can belay for you...just trying to keep it simple...Rap, Bouldering and TR this go.

If you have not been on any climbing events or classes with me, plan to get put on the wait list until vetted - safety first, this is not the best place to begin your climbing adventures....see my other indoor climbing events and my "learn" events to get your hands chalky. I'm happy to help, but on the crag...not so much...a solid working knowledge and safety understanding is absolutly mandatory. 

I will demo my BD ATC Guide for anyone that is interested in Solo Belaying....it's a trip - and when done correctly - it's as safe as it gets. If you get the itch to climb and no one else is around to help you top rope, this is it!

The total amount should be divided by the number of people in the vehicle, including the driver. This is a guideline, not a rule, for drivers but the cost should not be higher unless there are extenuating circumstances.

Venmo for Carpooling - we can split costs once event is underway

p.s. this event is posted in Mid-January...so it gives you plenty of time to prep, train and ask questions...take advantage of earlier events to get comfortable and confident on the crag!
