Climb at Garden of the Gods

"I plan on being there @ 3pm for some more climbing on Kindergarten Rock. Park at the south parking lot, take the trail, and meet up on the rock. Show up when you can - we'll climb till 8 ish"

 

NOTE:  Aly will be hosting this one, and I'll be helping out.  I plan to climb till dark, so even if you can't make it till late, come on out.  Look forward to seeing everyone!

PS - if you need directions or anything, just shoot an email to me or Aly.

    Had an awesome time. Unfort. it looks like I am out for Sunday, as I have other stuff to attend to. But I'll be at yoga Sat. and up for a climb following. There's a 5.10 at the park I'd like to revisit if anyone's down.

    A note about weather and lightning:

    Earlier in the week NOAA had forecasted a clear day for Thursday. They now have pops up to 30%. In my experience that means we will have weather. Typically, I like to be on the west side when there is lightning potential, b/c you can see which way the storm cells are headed; and also, escape (on a flat sidewalk) is safer. If anyone has the capability to pull up NOAA local radar on their phone while we're there, we can get some idea of direction and strength of storm cells developing tomorrow afternoon.

    Alternatively we could move to the west side, though the routes are more scattered. Or we could reschedule. As far as wet rock, K-rock's east wall is vertical enough that it doesn't get as wet as some Garden slab areas, and may dry more quickly if we have strong morning sun. So we'll want to see how much rain we get tonight.

  • Jim

    James, if you come out, would you mind terribly dropping a rope into the first anchors on New Era as you swing by, so that folks can TR the route? Much appreciated.

      Np Jim, I am planning on being there at 3 unless something unexpected comes up before Thur, the weather is looking like its going to cooperate for us...

    She's not in the meetup, but my friend Karen wanted to join you guys. We have climbed at Shelf and Red Rocks together and in the gym. You'll like her, she's cool. I won't be coming out myself.

  • Beth P.

    I get out of work at 5, will have to change then I can be up there. No later than 5:30, I'd guess. I think I worked too much though last week, so I might be able to beg off early.

    July 6, 2013

  • Jim

    Now we just have to make sure we don't have stormage that day. : /
