Announcing a new Meetup for Rock Climbers of Colorado Springs! What
: Secret New Year’s Climbing & Party When
: Friday, December 31,[masked]:00 PM Where
: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
I’m sure that many of you will have New Year’s Eve parties to attend but I’m not much for house parties, I’d rather climb! So if you feel the same way, or just can’t find a party that suits you, let’s get together for a couple days of climbing. All skill levels welcome. This event will be weather dependent; there are a number of places we could do this and the forecast will determine which crag is chosen. But it will be kept a secret until the day of the meetup. ;-)
The plan is, dinner around the camp fire Friday night, followed by a little revelry and ringing in the New Year; late start on Saturday morning for climbing (we’ll be sleeping in at least a little); more climbing on Sunday. Please indicate with your rsvp whether you’ll be joining us late or leaving early. Those of you arriving Saturday morning, either too early or too loudly, will receive mass quantities of penalty slack! j/k The best thing is, we get to party in a beautiful location, with no concern for the dangers of driving on such a night! (okay, the real best thing is we get to climb for 2 days, ha ha)
Bring your camping gear and plenty of warm clothing, just in case the nights are brutal, despite the (hopefully) pleasant daytime temps. Bring trad gear (if you have it) just in case; we may be climbing sport or we may be climbing trad. Bring food, water and your beverage of choice for the big night! If you have a vehicle capable of navigating rough and/or snowy terrain, please bring it.
We will meet at the Safeway at 3275 W. Colorado Ave. at 6:00 pm. http://coloradosprings.citysearch.com/profile/1917649/colorado_springs_co/safeway.html?publisher=ask&reference_id=1&placement=web
This is a fairly central location from which we can head whichever direction necessary. If you plan on joining us later that night or later that weekend, call my cell before 6:45 pm to get the location. [masked] Look for my burgundy Dodge Stealth R/T in the outer parking lot to the east.
