So that we can all identify each other in the Lowes' parking lot...I drive a green Kia Sportage with a kayak rack on top. It looks pretty goofy, so it's hard to miss.

I assume you mean be at the gym at 11. It takes about 1.5 hours to get there so we could meet at 9:15 for a slight buffer. Thoughts?

Perhaps we could meet at the back of the Lowes parking lot on veterans parkway?

I believe they do a belay lesson for free. The gym is open from 11 to 6 on Sundays. As far as a meeting place to carpool would somewhere on veterans parkway be convenient? Maybe at a subway or somewhere that folks can grab lunch to go if they want?

3march sounds good here. I haven't ever done any lead climbing, but I'm game for learning.

I am not lead certified at that gym, though I am at the gym in Chattanooga. I did lead climb a couple times in Atlanta - just asked for a lead rope and then let me sign it out - no questions asked. Not the safest approach on their part, but I knew what I was doing. It has been a few months since I climbed at all (let alone lead climbed) so I would only be comfortable doing it if someone in the group is a lead climber and would recognize if I had back clipped or Z clipped. Anyways, nobody has said anything about those dates except Chris, so perhaps Dante could post the event for March 3 and we can see what kind of response it gets?

I am willing to coordinate it, though i don't think I can post an event since I'm not an organizer can I? For anyone already on this message string...who would be interested in a trip to Stone Summit? If intersted, let me know your top 2 choices among these date options: Feb. 23 or 24 or March 2 or 3rd?

There's always the possibility of a warm-up trip to Atlanta's Stone Summit rock climbing gym (there are nice lead routes to practice on) when the weather isn't so nice.

I rock climb. I haven't been in a few months, so I'm probably not up to par. I have a rope and gear and have done a little lead climbing.

I'm not very experienced beyond indoor climbing, but I also have a set of gear with belay , carabiners, 250' rope and a few other items.

Kathleen, thanks for dropping a line. Unfortunately I'm about to leave the area for about 8 months. The Tennessee Wall and Fosters' Falls are some good locations if you can find any other people.
