Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
New River Gorge
The plan is simple:
Leave here Sat noon. Climb at a relatively easy area (Tattoo most likely) for about two hours Sat afternoon. Then start early Sunday (about 7 AM). Go to a moderate-hard area (Beauty Mountain) on Sunday and leave there at about 5pm.
There are a few 5.8s at the Tattoo and one 5.9 at the Beauty plus a few easy 5.10s there.
There will be space for two 5.8 level climbers. So everybody goes to the waitlist and then first come first serve. If you haven’t climbed outdoors much but you can climb some of the 5.9 indoors, you are also encouraged to join. Ask me if you had questions please.
If you want to leave or come back to Charlottesville any time different form the posted adventure time I appreciate if you do not sign up because this is a club group activity which we encourage the positive interaction of the participants to motivate each other, not a funding agency for climbing!!!
Few discouraging examples during a trip are: sleeping too much, taking frequent naps!!!!! 🙂 🙂 ,taking harness off way too early and start talking about leaving or looking for partners to leave. Talking too much about any failure including relationship and love failures, roommate or research failure or unsuccessful job or job search…. !!!!!!! 🙂 😉
Some good examples are:
Keep climbing with:
Broken fingers, being 34 y.o., being so handsome that even yourself don’t believe it.
It rains, snows, freezes, too hot, too hard, too humid, too many bugs/ rattle snakes on the route.
Complain/cursing/screaming/ sucking it in.
too short rope/ broken car/ too frequent shower/ too sore/ bursitis/ tendonitis/ joint contractile/ sprained ankle at Summersville lake/ various stages of SIS/ groin injury/ brain damage/ new relationship just started with south American origin cute girls/ the experimental mouses are about to deliver, the free opera/ food/ concert.
Outdoors club provides: all climbing and camping equipment, gas refund.
You please bring: water (min 2 liters) snacks and lunch for sunday. proper clothes (it may rain). Camera.
