116 Washington Avenue - A.K.A. Shred Shack
Sup hiker trash,
I’m just itching to get back out on the trails. I don’t have a plan yet but it would be nice to hike spy rock past three ridges and finish up at the Devil’s backbone brewery before returning to Charlottesville.
Details: Leave shred shack at 4pm Friday the 11th. (might involve some night hiking but that’s okay)
Friday night (~5 miles) – camp at spy rock (excellent 360 view and stars)
Saturday night (~15) – camp at base of three ridges (shorter day) or opposite side of three ridges (kick ass day)
Sunday night – (~15) Somewhere between three ridges and humpback?
Monday night – (~15) finish at rock fish gap, retrieve cars and go get beer or food depending on group preference.
Return Monday night ~7pm
mileage is based off my memory. I won’t make us do longer than 20 miles in a day and we won’t do back to back 20s.
I suspect total mileage for this trip will be 30-50 miles. This depends on whether we want to crush it or have more time to enjoy the views.
Regardless, I’m making this an advanced trip. This means
1) You should know how to pack efficiently
2) you should be in good enough shape to walk 15-20 miles/day.
3) You are comfortable walking on your own for a couple hours (we will meet up every 5 miles or so at least).
You bring: (You should know this for an advanced trip)
Water (we will filter)
1 set hiking clothes
1 sleep clothes
2 pairs socks (not cotton)
I bring: Group first aid kit, maps, msr water filter
Gear is available from the gear room.
