Mount St. Helena Top Rope, Sport, Trad

Lets get some climbing at Mt. St. Helena in Calistoga at the Bubble, Bear, etc. This is a Saturday meetup.

Bring your climbing gear:
Quickdraws, carabiners, webbing, shoes, pro, rope, harness, and helmet.
Snacks & lots of water
Sunscreen
Bug Spray

Note: Climbing is serious & dangerous so if you choose to attend climb at your own risk. Climb on or meetup.com (or myself) is not liable or responsible for any injuries you may incur.

Carpools, inventory of rope arranged in conversation section below.

Apparently the closest water sources are in Calistoga, and there are no restrooms at the park.

We can meet at the parking lot, or at the Bubble which should be pretty easy to find.
questions? suggestions?

    The weather is looking great for the weekend. I believe we have just the right number of ropes if the people who have them bring them. I've got rope, sport and trad gear. I look forward to seeing you all you guys on Saturday, remember to bring your water. If you get there late, we will be at the bubble and may move to the bear later on in the day. I'll be carpooling with Afshin. There's a cool ipod app called Mountain Project which has beta and pictures of the site. My cell is[masked]

      Allison-I have an extra ATC you can use.

      October 26, 2012

    • Allison

      Yay!

    Miguel that's an awesome spreadsheet ;-)

    October 26, 2012

    • Mike A.

      Thanks Miguel truly. There is a template our long time meetup member Peter Minearo maintains on his Red Rock trip for last 2 years that has been awesome. It could be customized and used as needed. Perhaps having the event organizer or a point person each trip take it on is a good idea? what do you think?

      Yeah, whatever works. But something should be encouraged, otherwise it's hard to manage trip organization over the commenting system alone.

    perhaps this might help to organize things a bit. http://goo.gl/rs9c4

    I have no gear! Can I still join?

      You should at lease have a harness, shoes and hopefully a helmet and ATC please.

      October 25, 2012

    • Allison

      Eiji, thanks sir I have some stuff coming in the mail. I will have to grab an ATC. I hope I won't be cramping anyone's style on Saturday. I'm just a beginner. I'd even be down to just watch.

  • Eiji K.

    Looks like I'm going through SF, Berkley and Richmond. Carpool?

    October 25, 2012

  • Eiji K.

    Looks like Shin has hurt her hand with some rope burn, and probably will need to give her hand some time to heal. I will be driving up and may be able to carpool with someone, I'm going up through S.F.

    October 25, 2012

  • Afshin

    Okay, Saturday will be fine then.

    I'm from South Bay. Anyone wants to carpool?

      I think so. But I'm going on Saturday only for sure.

      October 24, 2012

    • Eiji K.

      Afshin, I'm riding with Shin, we could pick you up if needed, but there's also Don and Miguel who are already in SF. They may have space.

      October 24, 2012

  • Afshin

    Eiji, I can go Friday if you are still interested. I have rope, draws and anchor gear.

    October 24, 2012

    • Afshin

      I was thinking late morning/early afternoon. I'm off on Friday so am pretty flexible.

      October 24, 2012

    • Eiji K.

      I have decided I will just do Saturday because work is incredibly busy, I'll need a recovery day before Saturday.

    It's about 80 miles but lot smaller roads some parts. I'd say 2:15 comfortably in Sunday morning traffic. Looks like shooting for a 6:45 am meet time is realistic.

    October 24, 2012

  • Krishna R.

    Thanks dawn. I will be at 3rd and 22nd (8 ? 8:30?). I can also help with directions. My number is[masked]

      Super. Whatever time works for you - as long as you know how long it takes to get to the site.

      October 24, 2012

  • Krishna R.

    Hi dawn do you have space for one more ? I live in the mission

      Absolutely. I just moved here from Canada and with no data on the road. Really tough to find my way around. Anyway you can meet me on 3rd at 22nd st.

    Hi anyone want to carpool? I'm in Berkeley. I have a full sport rack and rope too, if anyone wants to do sport trad, hit me up.

    October 23, 2012

    • Mike A.

      Hey Yen, Jake below your message lives in Berkeley so maybe he can carpool with you?

    I only have indoor gear. Can I still play?

    October 23, 2012

    • Mike A.

      Hi Dawn, all you will need is your harness, climbing shoes and chalk :)
