Turkey day climb @ City of Rocks, ID

  • Nov 28, 2013 · 7:00 AM

This is a cross meetup from the Seattle Climbing Group
http://www.meetup.com/rockclimbing-64/events/91171432/

As their planning a 4 day climbing trip to either City of Rocks ID, or Smith Rocks OR, depending on weather, during this coming Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
However, I'm more interested in The City, especially now that the forecast is calling for warmer temps, partly cloudy, and no rain/snow.

10 Day forecast
http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/Malta+ID+83342

if you have no plans for Thanksgiving, want to do some climbing, and have winter camping gear, this could be a good trip for you.

I have guidebook for The City, but never been there before.

I'm looking to leave Seattle, Wednesday 27 in the afternoon, drive half way, camp, and arrive in Malta ID, midday Thursday. It's a 10 Hour drive, each way. i can be flexible in my schedule, for anyone that can come along.

    Elena, yes this would be a winter climbing trip, with day temps in the 40s, and nights below 30. it's bearable as long as its partly sunny, with no precipitation and the right winter gear, such as:

    warm clothing, good belay parka. Winter sleeping bag if camping.
    there's an Inn at the park entrance, if its too cold to camp.
    with the major city with all conveniences being 45 minutes away.

    I've also been wanting to go for a while, and this break is the only slot i can fit in my schedule.

      Hi Dre, I decided not to go. There are complications with one of my classes... :(

    I don't have a certain time when I finish work shift on Wed. In any case it is around 7pm or later. But I am fine to leave late. Also need to make a few more arrangements before 100% commitment. City of Rocks was my destination for a few years now :) good chance to make it happen :)
