Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
New River Gorge
Freedom! America! Rock climbing! Swimming!
The time has come to yet again light a few candles on America’s birthday cake and sing a joyous song for the Land of Freedom. And what better place to do it than West By God Virginia?!!?!
New River Gorge has over 3000 sport and trad climbing routes. We will choose crags based on group preference and weather, but most likely we’ll be at Summersville Lake a lot cause they’re forecasting highs in the 90s. Which is great because they’ve got everything from 5.7 to 14b!
Minimal instructions will be given on this trip but you can review the skills that you already know.
