Rock climbing at Carderock

 

Well folks it's getting to be that time of the year again when it get's harder to climb outdoors due to the weather so I say let's climb ! Beginner friendly so long as you have your own gear such as harness , helment , shoes and a belay devise of some kind .  I have 3 top rope setups which would handle about 9 people . So if anyone has a complete setup and can bring it that would be great . That way we can open up more spots on the rsvp's . Some of us will be there a little early to get the anchors and ropes ready for climbing . If your bringing a setup , you may want to get there a little early also before all the routes get taking by other outfits.

    Unfortunately I'm still waiting for my rack to be shipped to DC and it may take a while.

      Sorry, by rack I meant actual rack, rope and anchoring set. All that will come, but not before the end of the month I'm afraid.
