Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
New River Gorge
Come out and celebrate the end of first week of school climbing at the New River Gorge. Crags will be decided based on the group composition, but most likely Sandstonia and Summersville Lake.
We drive 3.5 hrs to WV Fri night (eat dinner beforehand) and camp both nights at Ray’s with hot showers. We will make both breakfasts and dinner on Sat. Bringing PB&J’s for lunches. Sunday dinner will most likely be a fast food (You need to bring your own money). We climb both days and come bask Sun when we can no longer hold a water bottle.
Club pays for gas, camping, and food. So you only need to bring extra snacks if you want them. If we go to the lake, there are great places to swim so bring your swimsuit. Expect half an hour approach time on rocky trails.
Minimal teaching will happen in this trip but you can always review the skills you know.
