We will head out bright and early to maximize the day. This climb is planned for Sand Rock in Leesburg, AL, but it is weather dependent. The event is scheduled in the Central time zone where Leesburg is. That is 10:00am Atlanta Time.

Everyone will need to have their own shoes, harness, and belay device.You will need to know how to top-rope belay.You must have attended at least a few indoor events recently. Although there may be one or two lower-level climbs to maximize your experience, I recommend that you be able to climb at a level that is approximately equivalent to Stone Summit 5.9 Climbing will be top-rope style with ropes set for you.
