Announcing a new Meetup for DC Mountain Madness!
What: Strickler's Round 2
When: December 5,[masked]:30 AM
New Market, VA 22844
There seems to be a lot of interest in Stricklers as well as Old Rag. Since I can not make Tania's Strickler's treck in November, I am organizing a second "attempt" for December 5th. Hopefully we'll have some weather that will really challenge us as an added bonus. Please let those on the wait list and others sign up first. Those of you going on Tania's Nov trip are also welcome... just trying to make room for everyone as possible.
It's a 9 mile out and back with moderate elevation changes but the last 3/4 mile is an awful climb; a perfect opportunity to practice our rest step, pressure breathing and mental fortitude. Plus, the rock scramble in the middle is super fun, with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.This is NOT a hike for beginners or people with bad knees.
The climbs and descents are steep, plus there will be rock scrambling.
More details about the hike can be found here:http://www.hikingupwa..
As the date draws near, we'll decide on a carpool meeting place. The hike will start at 9am so plan to leave DC area around 5:30am. And be prepared to go in any weather like good little mountaineers. :D
