Come get a piece of some of one of the best climbing sites in our area of the US: the New River Gorge!

Katrina and I will be co-leading a trip to the New this Saturday (probably Sandstonia or Beerwall, to be specific). The New River Gorge is one of the premier climbing locations in the US, with a wide diversity of climbing available. This is not a very beginner friendly area, so you must know how to belay and climb a 5.9 to attend. Lots of sport routes if you can lead, which we’ll get set up as top ropes for everyone else.

We’re going to be leaving friday evening, eat along the way, and then camp for the night. It’s a long drive; around 3.5 hours. Be prepared for a potentially cold night! We’ll wake up early the next morning and head over to the site and climb pretty much until dark, then return to Charlottesville.

You Provide: 2 or 3 waterbottles, a couple snacks if you want, money for dinner on friday and saturday, basic climbing gear, a flashlight for the campsite, camping gear if you want to bring your own, and clothing warm enough, and potentially a rain jacket too.
(..and perhaps a ‘bail biner’ if you plan on pushing your leading skills a bit too much 😛 )

Be sure to hit up the gear room wednesday if you need any climbing gear.

The Club Provides: Gas reimbursement, breakfast on saturday, some food for lunch on saturday (don’t expect anything fancy), payment for the campsite, camping gear if you need it, and climbing gear if you need it.

(Also: A heavy chance of rain may cancel trip. Lead belayers and drivers get priority.)
