Climbing Weekend at Pinnacles

Hello!

I will be hosting a climbing and camping weekend at Pinnacles National Monument on Saturday May 8 and Sunday May 9. Pinnacles is a great place for all levels and all types of climbing from beginner sport routes to advanced trad routes. So bring your climbing and camping gear and meet me there Friday night May 7 for a beer and two days of climbing! I should be there by 6:00 PM at the camp site. I will get the site number out to those who accept after I know how many folks are coming. Here is some helpful info on the trip and climbing and camping at Pinnacles National Monument:

• Link to Pinnacles National Monument, including directions: http://www.nps.gov/pi...
• Link to Pinnacles campground:
http://www.recreation...
• Guide Book – “A Climber's Guide to Pinnacles National Monument” 2007 by Brad Young & Steve Dawson (this one is much more worth it than the older version)
• No food (restaurants), lodging or gas in the park. There is a little store at the campground.
• Any skill level is welcome.
• Limit to 20 people for the camp site. Please be courteous and RSVP as soon as you can and only if you can for sure make it in order to allow others to attend who can make it. It also ensures Johnny P doesn’t pay for a camp site that nobody shows up to!
• Pets allowed
• Pool!

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me.

    It seems like a number of you folks are coming up Saturday AM. Swing through the camp site (124 in loop G) before heading out to climb. If you are all set for gear and partners, we will just meet you at camp later for beers and rum shots! I am guessing most folks will be getting out of camp around 10:00 AM, if not earlier. Call my cell or shoot me a text if you want me to wait up of have any info. [masked]

    Van & Brian - Welcome aboard! Look below for any relevant info. In short, see you at camp site 124. It is in loop G, I believe. The pool is not open yet! Boo. My cell is[masked] if you need anything but not sure about a signal there. Richard - You will be there in spirit or whatever you call it after a few shots and beers! I knew you weren't coming and figured it was an auto RSVP.

    Jon - You're a wuss! Get there tonight and start the drinking warm ups.

    Ooops- when I set up the event for Johhny, Meetup automatically RSVPed "yes" for me. I'm not going to be there this weekend. Have fun!

    Nice Richard! Thank you. If anyone needs one, let us know. I can pick them up from you tomorrow at Mission Cliffs, if you can get them by then and folks let us know in advance.

    I have access to helmets through the Outdoor Adventure Club. If anyone would like to use a climbing helmet for the trip, just let me know and we'll make it happen!

    I reserved group site 124 under John Porro. Look for the white Nissan Pathfinder. It is good for 20 people and 5 cars but other parking is available. I am leaving early on Friday to pick a friend up in SJ so I can't take anyone else. Sorry. If anyone gets lost or has any questions, plase call me (720)[masked]

    Everyone should bring everything they have. I think we will be sharing a bit. I have 2 ropes (50m & 60m), tons of webbing and enough quick draws for a lead climb. So bring ropes, slings, webbing, quickdraws and locking biners.

    Remember to get the recommended guide book as 1-2 guides won't be enough if we all go off to different crags.

    I've got a pretty beefy 60 m rope suitable for top-roping and assorted barely used gear (slings, draws, some pro, etc.) I've accumulated.

  • Jonny F

    Should we take an equipment inventory? I've got a rope (I think it's 125') and some webbing - enough to set up a single top rope.
