Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
New River Gorge
This trip is open for 5.8 and higher climbers.
Saturday: 40% chance of rain so we will either be at Rico Suave (5.7, 5.10, 5.11) or Summersville Lake. If the group is more advanced, we will head to Toxic Hueco (5.11), Summersville (5.10), or Upper Meadow (5.10+).
I will go over how to clean anchors and lead climb/belay (more advanced climbers).
Sunday will be Bubba City – Sandstonia (5.6, 5.7s, 5.8s). I will go over lead climb/belay for beginners who are interested (recommend climbing 5.9).
Bottom line, if it does rain on Saturday, there will be a limited number of climbs to get on for the beginners. There will be plenty of climbs to get on for Sunday for everyone. I will be happy to offer advice on climbing technique and training.
