I have been talking about doing this trip for a little while, so I figure I better get it scheduled before the weather heats up. It is so awesome that we are already talking about it getting too hot. This trip will be primarily, a climbing trip, but I know there are some pretty cool trails to explore out there as well as mountain bike (I just might bring my bike).
Richard is going to lead the climbs for us and I will do my best to assist, but if someone feels comfortable with lead climbing and would like to help out, I will hold a spot for that special someone.
The plan is to camp at the blm campground near the visitor center. This is first come first serve, so I hope I can get there on Thursday to grab a couple of spots. If for some reason, we get shut out and can't find an alternative, we can always camp at a resort on the strip. My fear is that if we get too comfortable in the city, we may not make it to the rocks. I will plan on getting two campsites, which allows a total of 18 campers. If it is just Richard leading, then I will need to keep the number of climbers at under ten, but that could grow too.
Here is a map to the campground.

So, when you sign up, let me know in a comment if you plan on climbing and/or camp with us. This is important so I can track the number of climbers that are coming. If the event is full, sign up for the waiting list because plans will change and spots will open up. This event will be posted to the discussion board, so check it out and post any questions or concerns there. We can use it to coordinate carpools/caravans. Stay tuned, more info to come.
See you out there!
