Climbing and/or camping at Mt Diablo State Park this weekend

Please read ALL of the details below.

Saturday:

Climbing location Saturday:  Boy Scout Rocks

Meeting location and time:  We will be meeting at the Rock City parking lot at 8am.  Sorry so early, but if we want the best climbs we have to get there before any other groups.

Camping Saturday night only.  I will make reservations shortly.  Please bring cash for campsite costs.  Campsites are $30 per campsite divided amongst four of us so far.

I will bring my slackline for the campsite.

I will also be bringing my BBQ for a Group dinner.  All other meals please be self sufficient.

Sunday:

Climbing location Sunday:  Butt Rock (we will do some rappelling too).

Meeting location Sunday:  Rock City parking lot at 9am.  Butt Rock is just a short hike down the road so if you don't find us at Rock City parking then head over to Butt Rock and give us a holler.

I will bring a harness, belay device, helmet for both Allie and Alice.  Will need to verify your shoe sizes to see if you need to rent climbing shoes.

Make sure to bring some water and food to eat for lunch

Bring warm clothes as it will probably be chilly at least in the mornings.

I have plenty of anchor and climbing gear to use, but if you have gear that you can bring as well please let me know.

Recommended gear list for for campers:

tent

insulated or foam sleeping pad

warm sleeping bag

folding chair

cook gear

food for dinner

food for lunch on Saturday and Sunday

food for breakfast on Sunday morning (make it simple so we can break down camp, eat and head to the climbs by 9am)

headlamp

    So I'm driving from SF, who else is driving? Carpooling?

      If you want Manoj you can meet me outside the park and drive in with me since you are climbing both days. That's only if you don't need to leave early and can stay until Sunday night. Let me know.

    • manoj

      Thanks Stan, but i would not like to leave too late on Sunday. See you at the Rock City parking lot at 8 am then!

      March 1, 2013

  • Stan H

    Oh yeah, and once you are in the park there is NO CELL RECEPTION, I will be driving a dark gray VW Westfalia poptop camper van. I think Dottie will have her Subaru Outback. If you have trouble finding us ask the person at the kiosk where the climbing area is if you can't find it (note: there is Boy Scout Rocks, we will be at Lower Boy Scout on Sat, and Butt Rock where we will be climbing the Butt Crack on Sun).

    FYI also. Don't forget your headlamps. And remember I uploaded a map file to show where we are meeting. Don't be late.

    FYI campers. I didn't reserve a campsite online. I found out there is an $8 reservation fee tacked on to the already high $30 camping fee. We'll just have to get one first come first served. Last I checked ALL the campsites were still available tomorrow night so getting a site shouldn't be a problem at all.

    Thanks for putting this together Stan. I was just concerned about the cars. I believe we cannot have more than two cars per campsite. Is that something we need to worry about? I also have camping equipment that I can share if needed.

    • Stan H

      According to the website there are two vehicles allowed per campsite. I think only one of the vehicles is covered by the campsite fee though. Need to confirm. As for extra vehicles I still have to find out where they are parked.

      February 28, 2013

    • manoj

      I have camped at Diablo earlier, so yes, only one vehicle is covered by the campsite fee. The other vehicle will have to pay the park entry fees. I am not sure about the extra vehicles. There is a parking lot next to the campground so I guess they could be parked there if they are allowed to park overnight. Another point to note is that alcoholic beverages are prohibited at the campsites:( . I guess that includes beer and wine. Depending on the current fire alert we may or may not be able to have a campfire or coal bbq. We need to find out the fire danger level for the day we camp.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
