Blue Mounds Meetup trip

Last year we had nearly 30 people and had a great time at Blue Mounds (despite the insane storm) so we're doing it again! This time we have the group camp site at Blue Mounds State Park reserved for the weekend as well which will cut down on the extra driving each day.

Cost is $12 per person to cover camping and firewood, and Saturday night there will be a potluck dinner in camp.

Blue Mounds has hundreds of trad and toprope routes for all skill types, in addition to great bouldering.

    I accidentally brought home 2 carabiners from when we were setting anchors on sunday. A silver and blue with wire gates.

    • Andrew

      yes there is, just on the silver one.

      May 21, 2013

    • Carter

      The silver one is mine. If the blue one is a petzl ange with the single wire for the wire gate, that is also mine.

    I collected a few items that were left behind, please shout if you'd like them back:
    - metal fork with flowers on handle
    - Oxo paring knife with black plastic handle
    - 2.5 gal water tank (arrowplastic.com)

      If the water tank is blue with a tap on the side, it belongs to Arjan.

      I think the paring knife is ours, but I'm not too worried about it. Consider it a gift in return for the delicious banana boat! :-)

    Just curious how you are guys feeling about the weather report. I've never been to this site before- if it rains at all, is climbing totally out? The report seems to show 40% chance of rain through the weekend. Thoughts?

      I'll try to make it if I can. Totally down for TF and hope there are a lot more climbs like this this summer. Thanks for organizing!

    I'm planning on leaving St. Paul Friday afternoon and heading home Sunday evening if anyone is interested in carpooling.

    May 10, 2013

    Really, really wish we could attend this, but we'll be up in the BWCA. Have fun!

    Hey, never really done anything with this group, but this trip sounds awesome. Anyone want to carpool? I need to be back on Monday for work, but can leave early Friday or even Thursday to head out. I could drive, or give gas money. Let me know!

    April 25, 2013

    • alison y.

      I do! Where are you coming from? You can write me directly [masked]

      May 7, 2013

    • Adam L.

      I'm also down to carpool- I'd like to be back for work monday as well, I think. [masked]

      May 8, 2013

  • alison y.

    Can anyone take another rider? I can leave as early as 1:00 on Friday from Saint Paul, but need to be back Monday night. Thanks!
