This will be sport climbing with bolted routes. The routes at this location range from 5.6 upwards (I'm not leading above 5.10a and that may be pushing it) Anyone able to lead can do whatever grade they're comfortable with.
Rock climbing is great practice for scrambling.
You don't have to have any prior experience, as long as we have a few people that can belay, anyone can climb. Knots and belayer will be triple checked.
I have 2 ropes currently that can be used, this limits the number of available RSVP's unless there are other climbers with ropes that don't mind using them.
Please answer all questions when rsvping to the waiting list. People will be moved to going based on these. This is not first come first serve.
Please do not RSVP No – I only need to know if you are attending.
