*** Climbing after the workshop:
I’ll be staying to climb after the workshop, but I can only supervise so many people. I want everyone to be able to take advantage of the workshops so I’m not limiting the overall trip size, but if you want to stay and climb after please let me know so I can plan accordingly. The number of people I can have stay will ultimately be limited by the number of ~experienced~ belayers and outdoor climbers also on the trip, but I anticipate that it will be about 8. This can be more or less depending on the group, and I’ll let you know separately if I can have you stay and climb after. This is first-come first-serve, with the exception that I will try to get more people that have experience to help less experienced folks out.
