Pushing this one more week... didn't realize the weekend of the 8th was a 3-day weekend.. many will be out of town and most park sites are going to be full.... :)
The weather is turning nice and my ropes are crying for some attention!

Had an excellent time... Great group! :)
What a fun group! Thanks Cory for organizing. And thanks everyone for the encouragement..."you're almost there" and patience with this newbie. Anyone up for a Wichita Mountains trip?

Had a good time climbing today! Thanks again Cory for organizing:)
Any one here? If so where at?
See you all there! :)
Just called the park, they said YES, THEY ARE OPEN FOR CLIMBING! I was orig planning to have already left by now, so I will be a little late as it takes a while to get there from my house, but I'm about to leave!
I'll post here and send out an email first thing in the morning. The park office says they'll know by 8:30am. Their number is[masked]

I hope it's dry enough! Who should we call to check? Just the park people?
A heads up gang... Penitentiary Hollow was closed today (Friday) because of the dampness. The park will know about 8:30am tomorrow if they'll have the climbing area open.
I will see you guys at Penetentiary Hollow, Saturday morning. I do have climbing equipment.

Yeah -- way too early for me to pick my wardrobe as well. I will bring my camera gear so will have a large black backpack.
Oh my! Are we already supposed to have our outfits picked out! ;P Not sure what I will be wearing, but I will be carrying a red bag and looking like I am looking for someone in a brown "Smithsonian" ball cap;)
Shall we meet down in Penetentiary Hollow? There's a big sitting slab where we can set all our stuff. I'll be wearing my usual brown "Smithsonian" ball cap :)
Thanks Cory -- I am very interested. Schedule looks good now, but need to wait until next week to commit for sure. I would love to give it a try!

Vernon - you're more than welcome to join! We have plenty of gear.. I also have extra shoes and harnesses if you want to take a try at it :)
I have never climbed before -- but at least would be interested to come and watch -- maybe shoot some photos.
