      Did you find your helmet?? Also, did you get a chance to transfer pictures?

  • Derek

    Hey all, somehow my helmet disappeared after lending it out on that first lead climb we setup. Does anyone have a black diamond half-dome helmet that's grey with orange plastic?? It's brand new so would love to get it back if someone accidentally took it home :) Hit me up at[masked] or [masked] -- thanks!

    Thanks for awesome day climbing, thanks for organizing too! The route with a heel hook, if I'm not mistaken, is Baby Fat 5-11a. There's no way we are not re-doing it clean next time :)

    Okay guys. I shifted some work stuff to Saturday so I can lead this. so sorry for being indecisive. Ill make it up to you by leading a great meeup AND bringing breakfast. For rope detail look at my message below. I think we will have 5 or 6 ropes. Im driving Phil and calving if he is going. I believe Sergey and Juliana (now) are driving with Derek. Angela do you need a ride? Sadie you too? Angela your on way so maybe I can meet you somewhere along the 101, a familiar store or landmark? I know area pretty well. Sadie, could you possibly bart over to SF and maybe catch a ride with Derek? we will figure a way out for all you great guys to get a ride. does everyone else have a ride? If I missed a ride detail my bad...so stoked to do Indian rock and if we can try Castle Rock falls, great top roping and lead routes right next to a water fall :)

      Hey Mike! I just read all the updates. I still need a ride if you can take me. After reading previous posts I think Derek's car is full.

      January 23

    • Michael D.

      Jean your good?

      January 25

  • Evan R.

    I have 2 ropes and some draws and a car. Unfortunately, all my cams are being re slung. I have stoppers though.

    January 25

    • Michael D.

      awesome Evan bring them. You probably dont need your stoppers as everything were doing is all top roping and some sport leading. Am glad your meeting up with us :)

      January 25

  • Derek

    I have draws, 2 60cm slings, and an anchor chain.

    January 25

    • Michael D.

    K. Made this spreadsheet to try and organize things a bit better.. It'd be good if someone (MD - hint hint. =) ) would put the link in the details above. Please fill out the info and it'd be a good idea to see if we could organize rides so that everyone is pretty close to whoever they're picking up! =) We should have enough time to do this in the next 3 days.. =P

    Pretty sure I set the settings up right, but if you can't access the spreadsheet/edit it, lemme know. =)

    • Michael D.

      January 24

    Hey guys, I will be "in the area." haha since it's sorta full, but between me and my friend Allister, we have two ropes. =)

    January 23

  • Sergey S.

    anyone driving from the city and can give me a ride? Can pay gas, have rope, some draws, can lead 6-7-8(?), probably lead belay (just took a class :)). Thanks!

    January 19

    • Derek

      I may also be able to get a rope now, but will not know for sure until Fri/Sat. I'll keep everyone updated. Michael, when would be a good time to get them from you for Sunday?

      January 23

    • Michael D.

      all covered derek. I'm coming afterall and bringing my stash :)

      January 23

  • Michael D.

    Hey guys. I am not going to be able to do this on Sunday for personal reasons. We can either push back to next week or someone like maybe Adam can lead it? thoughts?

    January 22

    • Michael D.

      I thank you for beta. I will ask Aleksei since he has been here a few times. :)

      January 23

    • Sergey S.

      Hey we were talking with Derek, as far as I understand Derek myself and Phil are going no matter what :) we only have my rope though. Was wondering who else is in

      January 23

  • Michael D.

    Aleksei, Would you be willing to lead this meetup with Adam? If you say yes I will send you an REI gift card via email as incentive :) Let me know your thoughts. thx

    January 23

    • Aleksei P.

      Michael, I just realized it's the same day as Bouldering trip in Vacaville that I'm hosing. Duh. So I'm out of this trip. Sorry.

      January 23

  • Paulina

    Looking forward to this

    January 23

  • Michael D.

    I am driving from Sf and have 2 more seats in my car for anyone needing a ride

    January 21

  • Adam

    What's the reasoning for proposing Indian Rock versus somewhere actually in Castle Rock State Park?

    January 21

    • Adam

      Maybe for another Meetup, I don't want to derail the plan for this one.

      January 22

    • Michael D.

      PLease come to ours. we could use the rope and your energy. If you havent been to my meetups they are the BEST. we can also break into groups and maybe go to Lyme disease and or castle rock falls. :)

      January 22

  • sadie

    I'm in Oakland, have all my own gear (not a rope, though). Would love a ride! I climb around the 5.9 range outside, beginning to lead but ridiculously easy routes. I'll clean gear!

    January 20

  • Angela

    Can I carpool with anyone in or around San Mateo? I have a license and can pay gas, just missing the car...
