WHAT TO BRING:
Clothing that's both functional and flexible is your key to a comfortable climbing day. Adjust your choices according to season. In cooler weather exercise-type tights have become popular. Loose-fitting pants or sweats are also appropriate. (Don't wear tight jeans!) For the upper body a few light layers, along with a wind-breaker shell or light jacket, will be fine. If it's cool enough, a ski-type hat and gloves might be a good idea. In hot summer weather, bicycle-type or walking shorts are appropriate. (Running shorts are not a good idea!) A T-shirt or tank-top is recommended, clothing that are wicking and non-cotton would be ideal. Bring light jacket or sweater, it gets chilly at the evening.
Many climbers wear no socks with their climbing shoes. If you'd prefer to wear socks make sure they're very thin! Wear sneakers or light trail shoes for walking around. Leave your heavy-duty hiking boots at home.
This all day climbing, therefore bring lunch, snacks and lots of water, at least 2 liters per person in hot weather. Insect repellent and sun screen are useful when conditions indicate. Put everything in a day pack or knapsack. You won't actually climb with the pack on your back, it's just the most convenient way to carry your things from place to place.
ThIS IS A NO FLAKE POLICY!! In the previous rock climbing event, there was a few people that RSVP BUT NO SHOW, NO CALL or didn't change their RSVP status. Only serious inquiries please!!
Let me know if you have any questions.
