Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
It’s the week after Moab. You’re either gonna be going through adventure withdraw after a week of shredding on the daily OR you’ll have severe FOMO from seeing/hearing about all the sends from the trip. Either way, you’ll want to climb, so why fight it?? Let’s climb!
I’m planning to send the Sunset Walls at Old Rag, which has a good mix of sport and top rope routes. (There’s trad too, but we won’t be doing any trad this trip). I’m labeling this as an intermediate trip because there aren’t many lower level climbs (5.8+), but stay tuned for a beginner trip in the near future!
