Beginners' Day!!

New to climbing? Climbed a few times in the gym and want to try outdoors? Looking for an event where you can hit some easy climbs and meet other beginners? Or perhaps you're an experienced climber and would like to help mentor some of our new climbers? Then this is your event!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let's meet in the last parking lot at RRCOS at 1:00 pm and head past the pavilion to hit the easy climbs on the left just before Ripple Wall.

We're hosting this event in tandem with OCCS. The Outdoor Club does a lot of hikes and great outdoor adventures, and many members have hoped to try climbing, so let's welcome our OCCS friends!

If you do not own shoes and harness, I believe City Rock will rent them for $7/day, and that they open at 11am on Saturdays.

Note to RCCS experienced climbers: We would so appreciate your help in providing mentorship and support to the new folks. Please come out!

Afterward, if the experienced folks would like, (and beginners welcome to check it out) we'll head over to the Garden and hit some hard routes - I'll put a rope up on Rainbow Bridge (5.11) and we can pull some laps. Beers after dark at Bristol optional. : )

    So excited about this, is there anyone who minds exchanging numbers so if I get lost finding my way tomorrow I can have a navigator to guide me??

    NWS now bumped pops to 40%. We'll need to be careful.

    All: The NWS has put in 30% chance of T-storms for Th/F/Sa. In a pinch, the pavilion offers some cover from rain. For now, let's just keep an eye on the forecast and stay with the plan.
