      hey guys I went today no meet at people were there but were there were 3 other guys from Oakland there and they gave me lots of information they were super cool they said was a little bit wet but it was dry enough for them to play there for a little while...was windy with wet fog. hope sunday is dry and not so windy!

      January 11, 2014

    • Alex R.

      I went there at 11:00 am, but it was drizzling and wet. I prefer not to climb on wet rock. Not safe, not the best for the rock

      January 11, 2014

  • Alex

    So who wants to carpool for sunday?

    January 11, 2014

    • Cheryl N.

      I won't be needing a ride anymore Alex - thanks for the offer though. A few friends are tagging along and we're driving together - bringing a crash pad as well.

      January 11, 2014

  • Michael D.

    hey guys we moved it to sunday because of 30% chance of rain tomorrow. sorry for any inconvenience.

    January 10, 2014

  • Sergey S.

    Hi, is anyone driving from the city? I can split gas. If there's any roped stuff I also have rope and some gear.

    January 10, 2014

    • Sergey S.

      sorry, due to all the date/time moves I ended up on two parallel GYCO meetups. let me figure out what is on and where I am at :) sorry for inconvenience

      January 10, 2014

    • Sergey S.

      ok I found the other meetup (cragmont) is on so I will bail from here, sorry again

    Hey guys! So I have been keeping a close eye on the weather report and it is giving a 30% chance of rain developing later in the day(http://www.weather.com/weather/tomorrow/Belvedere+Tiburon+CA+94920:4:US). With that in mind do people want to keep the time we have or move it to sunday? I personally am available for either. Thanks! TGIF

    January 10, 2014

    • Mark S.

      I've taken care of my ticket, but weather.gov has the following forecast: A 40 percent chance of showers, mainly before 4pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 58. Southwest wind 6 to 10 mph

      January 10, 2014

    • Mark S.

      That's for Saturday. Sunday is: Sunny, with a high near 59. North northwest wind around 10 mph.

    Hi Jason. I would love to join on Sat! Is there still space? I can give someone a ride from Hayes Valley or SF. Have 1 other spot in my car. Will someone be setting up a top rope so some people can climb instead of boulder? I'd love to climb instead of boulder but down for either.

      Hey Sydney. A lot of people will not show up so yes ;)

      January 10, 2014

  • Michael D.

    Hey Jason. It appears there is a 20% chance or rain over next few days including Saturday. You might consider waiting it out to see how Friday looks or change to Sunday where it appears "sunny." :) http://www.weather.com/weather/weekend/Tiburon+CA+USCA0083:1:US

    January 8, 2014

    • Jason T.

      I usully follow the two day drying rule as well. However this rock is not sandstone. According to an article its metamorphic. The chance of rain is relatively though so Im still willing to go out on Saturday. But if people want to move to sunday I am totally down with that to.

      January 9, 2014

    • Alex

      The chance of rain is now up to 50%

      January 9, 2014

    Anybody carpooling? I'm in Hayes Valley.

      does either of you drive or are you looking for rides?

      January 9, 2014

    • Alex

      I drive. I could probably swing by and grab anybody in the vicinity (up to 2 people, I'm driving a corolla here)

    Thanks Jason! ....now I see there is a date posted, very excited for this being my first experience in this sport! I don't have any gear so will only be watching and learning what & how to do! Unless REI rents this type of gear????

    I have a head cold, and will probably be better by the weekend. Rather than risk it, though, I have released my spot. I hope we go back to Ring Mountain soon as I am excited to try it!

Be prepared to bring crash pads if you have em or if anyone wants to Top rope and has gear/knows how to set up natural anchors (tree or rock) bring it all

    Feel free to chime in on meetup wall and conversate. If you cannot make it please change your RSVP to no. No one will be upset. :)
    THANKS JASON. YOu rock

  • Taavi K.

    Well, I was there and had a good session, but didn't see anyone else from Meetup :-)

    September 6, 2013

  • Michael D.

    Hey Taavi, Did this happen? Would you like to see this meetup through for another date?

    September 6, 2013

  • Taavi K.

    A bit late, but I'm gonna be at Turtle rock for a few hours if anyone wants to join. At the end of the directions posted take a right on a paved path and then another right off of that when you see a non paved one a few minutes later.

    August 25, 2013

  • Taavi K.

    Sooo. I can't set the date, but I can show up at 9:30 tomorrow or so. Who's in for some Ring Mountaining? Disclaimer: there's no actual mountain, but it is very pretty there with the views of the bay.

    August 24, 2013

    I'd be down for this, for sure!

    August 23, 2013

  • Taavi K.

    Hmm... Approach shoes at Ring Mountain? I've been to Split Rock and Turtle Rock a couple of times and I'd describe is as "super easy to access local rock". Turtle Rock is the part that's worth going for imho - it has 15-20 boulder problems on it and no setup required, just a pad.

    Split Rock theoretically has many ways up it, but at 25ft it's barely worth setting up ropes on and it requires trad gear to do so. There are also some things inside the split, but again, they are not very high and setting up anchors for all the different climbs is a major PITA, since there are no bolts/rock horns etc.

    So in my personal opinion the best way to go about Ring Mountain with a group is to make it a fun/social Turtle Rock bouldering session. It won't be a full day of climbing, but you'll get a great workout and meet some nice people. Also, if someone wants to go highball some of those 5.6 to 5.9s on Split Rock they can do so.

    • Taavi K.

      I can't set the date though, because I'm not the ownerer of this meetup I think :)

      August 22, 2013

  • Michael D.

    Does anyone want to lead this in the next few weeks? I am booked through mid Sept. pretty please ;)

    August 19, 2013

    as long as there's a weekend date i'm good.

    August 19, 2013

  • Michael K.
