    I had an awesome time! Will definitely join GYCO for another climb again! Vitaly, no awesome photos of me? Well I guess you were so mesmerized by my technique that you forgot to take a picture ;P

      I am definitely looking forward to doing more meetups! The next one I will try to make will be a mission cliffs meetup. But I have to say outdoors is where its at!

    It was an awesome day of climbing and I really enjoyed meeting everyone. Some of us are just starting to climb outdoors and this was a first GYCO outing for Huckleberry. (Welcome!!) Thomas, you did a great job organizing this and it was cool to see everyone climb safe.

    Ok everyone. Tomorrow meet at the trailhead at 10am and we'll head up to the climbs. See you all there. Bring helmets, water, and snacks!

    Hey Guys!
    I worked out the doggy day care. Vitaly, are you coming from SF then? Would you like to go up together? I live right next to the bay bridge. I could also bart over to hook up with a car pool in the E bay.
    Cheers,
    Huckleberry

    • Vitaly K.

      Huckleberry, no I didn't get your text. I'll pick up Seema first just before 7:30 and then drop by your place. Bring some of your music for the car if you wish. I can take CDs, MP3s, iPods, and even SD cards.

      May 31, 2013

    • A. Huckleberry G.

      Oh, Ok, I took your number down again. I will be outside at 7:30. I will bring my I pod for music. Got lots of funk.

    Thomas, can we make sure this list is closed and not let anyone charm there way in behind the scenes? Any guests must sign up with GYCO and the meetup for which they are going :) Also, let me know who is a no show as we want to crack down on these.. and encourage helmets as i know you will. thanks :)

      Michael, I wouldn't break the rules like that. I'll let you know if we have any no-shows.

    Hey guys. as a general note if you are signed up on 2 meetups at same date and time even if you are on waiting list the right thing to do is to change RSVP on waiting list to no when you have a yes on the other. Because of this trend another meetiup is short of a rope on saturday which impacts those who dont have a rope and want to climb. Just be mindful of this going forward. Thanks

    May 31, 2013

  • Lauren

    Just got off the waiting list, I will bring my rope as well.

    Ok guys. Here is a link for directions on how to get there and where to park. Scroll down to the section "Getting There". The parking lot is right across the street from the hiking trail head. We'll meet in the parking lot. http://www.summitpost.org/mount-saint-helena/150521

    Let's plan on meeting in the parking lot at 10AM. It would be great if everyone could get there by then so we can get an early start. This means leaving the Bay Area around 7:30AM. We'll wait around until 10:15-10:20 if necessary. Let's all get there at 10!

    Bring hiking shoes as we'll have to hike up to the climbing spot. DON'T Forget hiking shoes!

      Hey, do we have a (very tentative) ETA when we will return? I have the entire day free but I have plans that night (but it's flexible). Thanks!

      May 30, 2013

      The plan is to climb until 5-6PM. Plan is of course flexible and ultimate decision lies with your driver.

  • Kevin

    I am coming from Potrero Hill in SF. I am going to drive myself so I can leave potentially earlier. Maybe 5pm-ish. I think Vitaly already has everyone covered in SF, but I have plenty of room if others need a ride from SF.

    I don't have a rope or anchoring gear but I have everything else including six quick draws and helmet.

    May 30, 2013

  • Henrique M.

    Hi all.
    It seems that won't be able to come this time.
    Have lots of good climbing fun at Mt. St Helena!

    May 29, 2013

  • A. Huckleberry G.

    Hey Just wanted to mention that I have some experience setting anchors, and would love to get more practice doing so. I will bring all of my webbing and rope!

    May 29, 2013

    • Vitaly K.

      I can help out with anchors if needed. I've done it before and I took a course. Unfortunately I don't have my own gear.

      Thanks, we've got three ppl at this point, but we'll take you up on the offer if necessary!

    To reconfirm that everyone is bringing their ropes: Julian, Huckleberry, and Steve - Please make sure to bring your ropes and basic anchor gear.

    As Michael stated, it is of utmost importance that everyone is safe and brings a helmet. If you do not have one, let me know. We will share to make sure everyone has one. People can share mine.

    1 · May 29, 2013

    • Steve L.

      I'm bringing my rope and anchor gear.

      May 29, 2013

  • Michael D.

    Hey Thomas, let me know if certain people dont confirm or chime in or are no shows. And encourage helmets even if folks have to borrow them or buy. Its a wise investment. It would be nice to identify who can set up basic, safe anchors and you have a decent sized group so hopefully you have at least 4 to 5 ropes to accomodate 10 people. The Bubble and Bear are both great areas to please a larger group. Just a thought and suggestion :)

    We'll hammer out all the details before the trip, but to start let's figure out two things:

    1. Carpooling. W/10 people, we could get up there w/3 vehicles. I'll be driving from Milpitas, going through the Easy Bay. I'm sure some people will be coming from SF. People closer to San Jose contact me about riding up in my car. Who can fit 3-4 people and is willing to drive from SF?

    2. Ropes. From the responses - Steve/Huckleberry/& Julian all have ropes. Are you all willing to bring your ropes? If so, we'll be set. People bring your basic anchor setup gear so we'll have enough of that to go around.

    Let's figure this out then we can move forward.

      Good idea Vitaly. Katherine and Sue are riding up with me from Easy Bay, so they can fill in my car. Everyone else, and people from SF area, sign in for Vitaly's car. 1 more person add a car and let's fill them up!

      May 23, 2013

    • Vitaly K.

      Looks like the carpooling site is not getting much use. Oh well.. so far we have 3 cars with 7 people. (Thomas with Sue & Kathrine, Steve with Clare, and Vitaly with Huckleberry) Not sure what's happening with Henrique, Kevin and Julian.

      May 28, 2013

  • Steve L.

    Clare and I are riding up through the East Bay. We still have room for a couple more.

      Niyant, the date will be set forth by the event organizer. The date above is a suggestion so whatever he decides should be a "go." If he decides on June 1st and you cant make it look out for other dates & meetups you can make ;)

    Hey Thomas, feel free to change date as needed. I was copying over an old st helena meetup and it requested a date so copied date field over. Cheers :)
