Glad to know I'm on the list for both days at Willoughby - can't wait. Rather than camp, I'll be staying in a local inn and joining you all in the morning.

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to send out a quick note about some of our Mountaineering & Ice Climbing Meetup's.

Just so its clear about group sizes.

I set the size based on the area of the Meetup and how much it can handle. Also more specifically the leaders whom join the list. Once the leader is signed up then at that time or a time or just before (about a week) our Meetup I add the 2nds/followers. In the order that they signed up onto the waiting list.

If there is someone who is not a lead climber on ice. But comfortable setting up a top rope. Also, Willing to play on top-rope for the day with others let me know in the questions I ask or contact me. Happy to work things out so we all can play outdoors...

As you know in some areas good trees at a easy edge are limited. Some ice areas you must rap to a good tree to anchor too or set some kind of safety to set up your rope safely.  Or the more difficult for top-rope climbers. Climbing to place the screws and cord for the top-rope anchor.

I can help in the morning and move onto a climb. Ice top-rope typicality only need a hand full of webbing and a 50 - 60 or 70 meter rope and a few beaners. 2-3 screws for a Ice Anchor or a redirect if needed.


So, on the up and coming Ice Climbing trips make sure you answer all the questions on the trip you would like to attend.

I will go back tonight and add a comment section to all Ice Climbing Meetups so you have ideas on how to be helpful or willing or looking to top-rope you can respond.

You can always edit your Answers just go back into your RSVP and keep the Yes checked and the next screen should have all the question pop up.. You have to fill that stuff out I am blind without input from you.. I don't have time for you if you don't have time for me.. Hows that.. Not PC but a reality of how much time this sucks up.. But I do it for the love of getting out side and meeting so many interesting people from all over the world.


Organizer has a whole list of different screens. So if any of this isn't right let me know and we can try this all over again..:-(


Thanks very excited for our 2012 - 2013 season of ice Climbing...
