I will be mostly setting 5.8, 5.9 and 5.10s.
Trip Requirements: Able to tie in and belay a top rope. Able to climb 5.8 on top rope.
You provide: At least 1 liter of water. Lunch or money to get lunch on the way. Seasonally appropriate clothing – it will be much colder in the morning. Any gear you have (harness, shoes, belay device, chalk bag).
We provide: Ga$ money for drivers, the rest of the gear, a rope, transportation.
I will try to arrange so that you can check out climbing gear if you need to borrow them. We will stop by BP to pick up something for breakfast and lunch in the morning. We may stop by for dinner. I will only be taking a small group – the maximum number of attendees is permanently set at 6. Drivers and lead climbers get priority.
