Little Wilson Climbing Area
****—-Trip Cancelled for Weather 🙁 —-****
This trip is part of the BOONE, NC mega-trip. We will be leaving DIRECTLY from the campsite, so IF YOU GET ON this trip, make sure to sign up for the carpool associated with the mega-trip: http://outdoorsatuva.org/members/adventure/read/4813
Hey all, I love hearing stories and I love telling my own. I also love climbing, so let’s do both! There’s exactly zero climbing trips for this Boone, NC mega-trip, and just as many story-telling trips, so hold on to your hats!
I vote we climb at the Little Wilson climbing area and have each person tell a story of a close call they’ve had. Doesn’t have to be life threatening, but it DOES need to be your own story!
which is about 45min south of Boone, NC where we’ll be camping. While I’ve yet to hit up this crag, it looks like there’s a good spread of climbs from 5.8 (a good challenge for beginners) to 5.12c (a good challenge for intermediate/advanced climbers). **If you are a new-ish climber and want to join this trip, be prepared to push yourself pretty hard**
That isn’t to say this would be impossible for beginners, but just be warned! Preference will be given to intermediate/advanced climbers and those who know how to belay.
