Hi everyone,

I'd highly recommend the Blue Mounds gathering. I've gone for the last 5 years and always have a blast. There's usually 20-30 climbers all camping out in the group camp site. There's a rope on every climb and plenty of people to belay! Even if you only have a harness and no other gear you'll have a blast and learn a lot! It's also incredibly inexpensive. There's usually a slackline setup in camp as well. Generally a potluck is held on Saturday night and we've had deep fried turkey! PLUS it's Buffalo Days in the town of Luverne just outside the state park. There's a parade, and a 5k fun run, and an arts and crafts fair, all you can eat waffles at the VFW, a classic car show, and other fun stuff. It's really a great weekend :-)
