Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Spring is finally here and so is the climbing season!
This will be a basic beginner/intro to climbing course where we will go over all the basics of rock climbing (how to tie in, how to use basic equipment, how to belay, etc.) and discuss some of the things to keep in mind while climbing outdoors. So if you’ve never climbed before or if you’ve climbed a few times but are a little rusty than this is for you!
Destination: Hidden Rocks, VA – About an hour and a half away from Cville and half hour away from Harrisonburg. This is a great beginner climbing area with a lot of good beginner climbs.
What to wear: dress for springtime weather. Its probably good to bring a light jacket/light long pants. Also, it is about a 20 min hike to the rocks, so bring sturdy hiking shoes/boots.
What to bring: Backpack, 2-3 litres of water, lunch and snack food, a camera, flashlight/headlamp, sunblock/bugspray
Everyone will go to the waitlist at first. I will join people to the trip as I get drivers.
NOTE: This trip is subject to weather.
