Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
New River Gorge
Let’s try this again! Leave Saturday evening and heading to the NRG for some climbing at Sandstonia (or whipporwill?) Sunday. I will be teaching beginners that want to get a safe climbing experience outside and intermediates that want more sport climbing instruction. I am still pretty injured so i will be staying on the easy stuff 5.6-5.8, but there will be a wide range of climbs from 5.7-5.13.
Tents and other camping gear
climbing gear if you need it
Breakfast and lunch on Sunday
-Harness, shoes, belay device, chalk/bag, and any climbing gear you have. Please try to get this from Gear room this week if you don’t have this stuff
-Any camping gear you may already have, especially headlamp, but i will be getting anything you need from gear room.
-Camping clothes— layers for warm and cold weather
