Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
New River Gorge
This trip is mainly for people who have had some experience climbing (know how to belay and have gone a few times) just since there are not a ton of beginner routes. We’ll be doing a lot of sport routes that people can climb on toprope. On Friday we’ll head up to the New River Gorge in West Virginia and camp out either at Roger’s (where all the climbers are) or at a cool place with a great view (aka the secret place). After an awesome breakfast at the Cathedral Cafe, we’ll go out for a full day of climbing. We may climb (and swim!!) at Summersville Lake, depending on what people want to do. We’ll head back to Charlottesville after we’re all worn out.
You should bring: sleeping bag/pad if you have it, something warm in case it’s cool at night, lunch and snacks for Saturday, lots of water, money if you eat a lot and will go over the amount that the club will pay for the meals, bathing suit for swimming at Summersville Lake, rain gear
Club provides: climbing and camping gear, gas and a ride in a car, dinner on Friday and breakfast and dinner on Saturday, camping fees
