Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
New River Gorge
It’s getting to be that time again…time for a trip to the New River Gorge to do some cliff scaling! They’re calling for scattered showers, but that hasn’t stopped us before. Temps should be stellar (around 70F) and there is a high probability of having a blast if you go on this trip.
I realize that UVA undergrads have exams next week, and I don’t want anybody failing out on my account. But if you don’t have exams (or study well in the car) then by all means join up!
In order to go on this trip you must be able to climb 5.10 on top rope. Those who can lead climb and/or drive get sign up priority. No teaching will happen this weekend, but you can review skills and practice leading to your heart’s content.
The plan is to leave Fri from town around 6pm, grab dinner on the road, and camp at either Ray’s or Roger’s. This departure is flexible; if enough people would rather leave Saturday morning then we could do that too. I’m a believer in democracy.
Climbing crag for Sat is TBD depending on how the weather looks. Dinner likely at a restaurant on Sat night. More climbing Sunday, and then we’ll leave by about 4pm Sunday to be back in Cville around dinnertime.
What to bring: climbing and camping gear, 2L+ water, snacks, dinner $$, camera, rain gear, warm layers (hat, gloves, puffy jacket, etc), something to eat on, eating utensil, drinking mug (we’ll be cooking!!!)
Club provides: ga$ money + car ride, climbing and camping gear you need, breakfast and lunch for 2 days.
If you have any questions just ask!!!
