    Here at parking area. Gray nissan altima. Not sure where everyone is climbing. I'll look around for a bit before I head back to sac. Unless someone can cone meet me at the parking area?

      we are at the climb area. sorry you missed but going forward get my number and try to make your there on time so you don't lose out. okay?

      No worries. Being unfamiliar with the area I put the address associated with the meetup (96 Mitchell Canyon Road,Clayton CA 94517) in the GPS coming from Sac. I got there at 1030, but it was not at the correct park entrance. After talking with staff and them giving me a map and explaining how to get to where you were (they said I had to drive back out of the park and around) I didn't arrive to Rock City until around 1130ish. It wasn't all in vain - I did hike around some - really cool area. Next time we can swap digits if I can make it to another.

    Ok headed back to Sac. Hiked around looking for the group with no luck. Google searched boy scouts climbing area and headed that way too but never saw anyone. Hope everyone had fun.

    February 17, 2013

    • Michael D.

      So sorry you had to head back. hopefully next time we will get the opportunity to meet you :)

      Sierra the meet up started at 10:30 and i waited until almost 12 for you and didn't see you so I needed to meet the group to help set up top ropes.

  • Gerhard B.

    hi everyone,
    new guy here...
    one question: where does the max number of people come from, is that due to number of cars available?

    February 16, 2013

    • Michael D.

      we try to cap the number of people to be considerate of other climbers that are not in our group who will be climbing. i wouldn't want other climbers to feel we are taking over the climb area with our ropes and gear.

    I forgot about my crash pad. Is it worth bringing for a (mostly) top-roping trip?

    February 16, 2013

    • Michael D.

      There is Ani? where in relation to where we are climbing?

      It's on the way during the trailhead if I'm not mistaken, it's a small spot but has some v3+ routes I think

      February 17, 2013

  • Michael D.

    Getting to Mt Diablo;
    (climb area:Boy Scout Rocks):
    From the 680 just north of Danville, take exit 40 for El Cerro Blvd and follow that east for about 1 mile. Continue on Diablo Road. After about 2 miles, turn left at Mount Diablo Scenic Blvd, which becomes South Gate Road. Boy Scout Rocks will be on the right. Boy Scout Rocks Map

    Hey Michael can you post directions to the parking area you mentioned? I am unfamiliar with the entire area - bummed its not in Auburn as originally thought. Thanks

    February 16, 2013

  • Shannon W.

    Michael - I'm on the wait list but since this is almost in my backyard, I'm going to stop by. Will bring rope and gear and try to see if I can grab Amazing Face for us before the crowds show up.

    February 14, 2013

  • Melanie

    I really thought this was for Monday; this date wasn't a good one for me before I RSVPed originally.

    February 16, 2013

    • Michael D.

      I changed it to Sunday as I need down time on Monday as IM exhausted :) sorry Melaanie

      February 16, 2013

  • Richard K.

    I have a rope and some anchoring gear and I can take two or three people from SF.

    1 · February 11, 2013

    • Hazel

      I also need a ride from SF, do you have space for one more person?

      February 16, 2013

    • Michael D.

      Hazel, aren't you riding with Kousuke? Richard actually lives in North Berkeley so it might be easier to ride with Kousuke?

      February 16, 2013

  • Alicia N

    :( I didn't notice the updated date for this meetup, can't make it on Sunday. Maybe next time.

    February 16, 2013

  • kousuke

    What time should I reach? 10am??

    February 16, 2013

  • kousuke

    I'm from mission of SF. I can take 2-3 people ride. or if someone can take me ride, i can share the cost.

    February 15, 2013

    • kousuke

      I got your message, and replied. please check it

      February 16, 2013

    • kousuke

      (sorry, I cannot see your message on the web, but saw it on email) what do you say at ferry building? It's my way to the tommorow's place. Let me know where you want to meet better :)

      February 16, 2013

  • kousuke

    One question. I don't have my helmet now(I'm in travel). Must I have it?(Of course, it's better to have, I know). If I have to have it, could you tell me where I can buy. Thanks!

    February 15, 2013

    I swore I thought this meetup was for Monday the 18th; whether or not the date changed (and my fault for not keeping track), so sorry, but have to change my RSVP. This date doesn't work for me, ;(. I miss you Michael!

    February 16, 2013

  • Michael D.

    Looks like we have 7 ropes. If Denise doesn't come only 6 but with 12 that is fine :) everyone have a ride?

    February 14, 2013

  • denilou

    I'll add myself back to the waitlist, but still not 100% sure I can make it so changing RSVP to free a slot for someone else.

    February 14, 2013

  • agustin

      I'm happy to drive the full distance if you want to toss in some dollars for gas. Just send me a private message with your address and we'll take the conversation there.

    Mitchel Canyon Road is on the North side of the mountain. The climbing is on the South side near south entrance. Your directions are for Auburn. Nice if you corrected these.

    February 11, 2013

    • Michael D.

      oops. i was copying an auburn meetup for all the verbiage about "what to bring" and forgot to remove the directions. thanks Steve :)

      February 11, 2013

  • kousuke

    I'm comming from SF, so I will take my car to bring someone there. I have one 50M rope. but I'm on waiting list, so I'm not sure I can join.

    Hi all! My first outing with the group. I'm not experience leading so I will just be going for the top rope.

    1 · February 7, 2013

      February 11, 2013

    February 7, 2013

    • Michael D.

      sure as long as you have shoes, a harness and know how to safely belay. Also, you should invest in a helmet if you can ;)

      February 11, 2013

  • Steve T

    Auburn?

    February 9, 2013

    • Michael D.

  • Sandra

    I'll help pay for gas, who can I get a ride with and what time should be meet. I was planning to bring a bicycle helmet but if anyone has an extra "girls helmet that would be cool to try out."
