Intermediate Climbing

Sam Clinard

Hi dirtbags, I decided I didn’t want to wait a whole two weeks for nrge. So I’m making a climbing trip for this Saturday! This one is going to be a little more advanced so that I can focus more on climbing rather than teaching. If you already know how to top rope belay and can climb 5.8 on top …

Zakey Faieq

Greetings outdoorsians, Around New Years I’m going to New Hampshire for some winter shenanigans – mainly to take a class on avalanche hazard management with another club member, Josh McVeigh, but also to do some night skiing after the class. I had a great time leading a similar trip last year (http://outdoorsatuva.org/members/adventure/read/4255), so I figured I should make this one …

Manualing in a Field Near My House

Beginner Kayaking on the James

Ned Ende

Hey, I’ll be back in Richmond this Saturday so figured I would lead a trip. This is designed for people who have learned how to roll at some point in the not too distant past.

Kayak Outfitting Party/Rivanna Whitewater Park Discussion

Joshua Tracy

Get ready for Gauley season! You always paddle better in a boat that fits like a glove. The hardest part about boat outfitting is remembering to do it while your boat is dry. Then waiting 48 hours for the contact cement to cure to full strength. The solution? Schedule yourself some time to come by and get your boat right …

Adv Mtb – Shred Pilgrimage

Ashe Allende

My dearest seekers of stoke, Last night, as I sat in the lonely library called HSL, studying sticks and hexagons that are supposed to somehow form something important (I’m pretty sure that they actually don’t and orgo is really one giant lie), I realized that I need an intervention against nerddom. Then, on my walk home in the wee hours …

New Year’s Advanced Kayaking Adventure

Joshua Brooks

What better way to bring in 2015 than driving around the Mid-Atlantic chasing waterfalls (or slightly wet/frozen rocks), camping under the stars (or on some friends couch), and putting on completely frozen kayaking gear for 5 days straight? If this sounds appealing, then join this trip. We will be heading out to find class IV-V advanced whitewater, with default locations …
