    Thanks for the heads up. I have a 60m single and plenty of gear to set up top rope. I don't recall any routes requiring doubles but I could be wrong. Either an extra single or two doubles should work out. I am driving a silver Toyota Camry with Florida license plate by the way. See you at the crag.

      There are some multi-pitch possibilities...The Beast is 2 pitch WI4, and there is a WI3 route left of that. These climbs are about 200 yards east of the main area and are pretty cool. Also Leprechaun ' Lament has a left most variation at 2-3 that is 2 pitches to the top, popular multi-pitch first route/training.

    How are we set for ropes? I have doubles and a couple singles, along with lots of anchor and lead gear. Unfortunately I will be a little late, and will plan to be at the pull off for 9, as I can't quite get to Lincoln for 8:30. I can carry my double ropes or a single. If I know where we stand I will plan accordingly. There's a good chance you'll still be gearing up by the time I arrive, in which case NP.
