The weather looks like it will be nice next weekend so let's do some bad ass trad and sport climbing at Donner pass (truckee) AND big chief (truckee). My fave area for easy trad. 1, 2 to 3 multi pitch routes (school rock, snowshed, peanut gallery & grouse slabs) Or top roping at Green Phantom. See link below for beta.
Things you will need:
*Gear (rope, webbing, draws, shoes, harness, etc)
*Food & water (sat day and sun day. we can eat out Sat night)
*sunscreen and bug spray as needed
*Guide book or map of routes - see below link
Carpools eccouraged - I plan in taking off early Friday so I can up to Truckee early and beat traffic. You are free to come up Fri-Sun or Sat-Sun or one. it's up to you.
Accommodations: Because campsites arent open yet I suggest getting a hotel room at Truckee Hotel: rustic, reasonable, in nice downtown Truckee next to great places to eat, bars & live music. The hotel rooms have 2 or 3 beds in it so camp out with one another.
As a reminder, please read again the GYCO helmet policy and liability waiver:
We strongly recommend you wear a helmet while climbing on a GYCO meetup. If you arrive at a GYCO outdoor climbing trip without a climbing helmet or are unable to borrow one from a peer, you may be asked to clear the climbing area or leave the meetup by your organizer should any safety issues occur. This policy is put in place to reduce the risk of injury to yourself and others from falling rocks and climbing gear so please respect your organizer, meetup participants and GYCO's safety policy.
