Shelf Road Saturday Day Trip

Let's join up with the Spectacular Adventures Meetup down at Shelf on Saturday and hit some moderates so some of you who haven't been climbing for long can get a look at the limestone there. We will go to the Piggy Bank, one of the best moderate areas with the shortest hike.

    Great day! FYI: stopped in at the newly ordained Canyon Coffee shop, the owner and employees are terrifically nice! The owner sends a warm welcome and invite to any and all climbers that meet there.

    So, most people will meet at Bank parking lot at[masked]? I will warm up at the Piggy Bank, but hike over to Cactus a bit later. If my wife goes into labor, I need to have a good cell signal.

    Anybody make trips down there on Sundays? I work Saturdays. I was there at Cactus Cliff last Sunday, and the weather it was perfect ! I hope that it is at least as good for you this weekend!

      I was there last Sunday. We were at the Bank; 2150 wall earlier, then Surreal Estate wall at the end of the day. Probably can't make this Sunday, but maybe next.

    Haven't been down there in a while. I am going to just be there Sat though. (at least that is the plan at the moment)

    I have not confirmed this, but I heard that this wknd is a designated "anchor replacement" and trail maintenance activity, so The Bank campground is reserved for those volunteers. Therefore, I am going to bail, but hope it works out for you.

    Can't wait to get out this weekend. Its been months since i've tied in to the sharp end. I am happy to lead in the 9's and will bring a rope and draws. Bringing a beginner that climbs in the 7's so hopefully we can get on some super moderate lines.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
