Haven?t been to the Garden in awhile so I say let?s hit it up! Since top-roping possibilities are few and all previous trips to the Garden were open to all, I?d like to see a showing of more experienced climbers this time. Sorry, this is not an event for beginners or anyone who is looking for top-roping. Instead, we will pair off and split up; there are numerous multi-pitch and hard sport opportunities to be had. If you do not lead trad or sport on questionable sandstone, please contact someone in the club who does, and arrange to climb with them. Afterwards we can hit up one of the local watering holes, if there are any climbers out there who like beer. ;-)Note:
be sure to have a climbing permit from the city; these can be obtained at the Garden of the Gods Visitor's Center near the park entrance. And no white chalk! (sorry, try an eco-ball from any one of many local outfitters instead). And remember: always pull down, never pull out on the flakes. Doing so may result in some unexpected airtime, and possibly the up-rating of a climb.
We will meet at the north parking lot at 9:00 am. Look for the burgundy Dodge Stealth. To find this parking lot: get on 30th Street and follow the signs to the park entrance, Gateway Rd. If coming from Garden of the Gods Rd./ Centennial Blvd./Mesa Rd. you will head south on 30th. If coming from Fontmore Rd./Uintah St./Colorado Ave. you will head north on 30th. Once on Gateway Rd., follow the loop (Juniper Way) to the first parking lot.
