Let's Climb Summit Rock-CHANGE IN PLANS! READ BELOW :)

So here's the new plan.  Summit Rock is out.  We will meet promptly at 8'oclock on Sunday at the Castle Rock State Park kiosk (entrance).  We'll hike down to Last Temptation for it's sun and many anchors.  We can also hit other nearby crags including Mt. Doom, Goat Rock, Billy Goat, etc.  Due to a recent rain, crags in the shade such as Summit Rock will need to be avoided so we do not damage the rock as sandstone is vulnerable when wet.  I encourage all of you to support the park by parking in the parking lot.

    Steve did an outstanding job. Two of the best leaders together, what else could you ask for.

    Does anyone have all the names of everyone that was at the climb. For example, I do not see Elaina's name on our list plus others.
    Thank you.

    Steve Thanks! as always for the stellar Job. Mark, nice to meet you, and thanks to you, too.

    We were tempted by the Last Temptation and gave in, but who wouldn't? Sunny with great views and many excellent climbs. Summit Rock is great, but not after a rain. Of course the excellent company made the temptation even greater.

    Thanks again everyone for making this a super fun day!

    Steve. Been in contact with Stuart about Handley Rock in Redwood City. Told him about Summit Rock. He thinks it will be to wet from the rain, especially since it doesn't get a lot of sun. So my friends and I are talking about Doomed Mt., or possibly Mt. Planet Granite.

      How is Goat Rock area? Is it too crowded?

      November 21, 2013

    • Steve L.

      Goat Rock will likely be taken and with our group size, it wouldn't be fair to claim it unless we share.

    Steve, Gavin isn't going, only heard back from one other person so far. We will be at CR at 9AM. Suspect I will hear back from at least one more. Will bring 2 ropes to Mt. Doom. Where is Last Temptation?

    From previous part of conversation, I thought the same thing about harming the rock.

    November 21, 2013

  • Steve L.

    Hey Jeff, we might join you on Mt. Doom. Feel free to join us on Last Temptation. We're neighbors :)

    November 21, 2013

  • Ed

    Thomas, I have two ropes that I can bring.

    November 20, 2013

    • Thomas L.

      Thanks Ed. Always know we can count on you!

      November 21, 2013

  • Steve L.

    Thomas, I'm looking at a long stressful day tomorrow. I'll be away from the computer most of the day. So yes, please respond to people for me as needed. I'll owe you!

    November 20, 2013

    • Steve L.

      Btw, it's positive stress! Holiday madness! :)

    I am a woman with a rope! Please let me know asap if I can go so I can call for my permit tomorrow or Friday. Thank you! :)

    • Thomas L.

      Katy, please call and get your permit. Bringing your rope would be a great help. :) thanks for offering.

      Thanks Thomas, long day at work!

    Steve, as long as you are up front about it, I think your preference is OK. Didn't sign up for your meetup because I told some friends it is open and we may be going there on Sunday also. Will try not to conflict with your group.

    November 19, 2013

    • Thomas L.

      Jeff, will be good to see you out there. Glad to see you've gotten outside a few times recently!

      November 20, 2013

    • Steve L.

      Thanks, Jeff. And, our group is your group!

      November 20, 2013

  • Steve L.

    So, at this point, we're full. There's 13 signed up. 9 on BARC and 5 here (minus 1-myself twice). At this point, I will still add women since they are outnumbered and I will also add those with ropes.

    November 19, 2013

    • Steve L.

      On past meetups, I have had women express to me that they wish more women were at these meetups. This is a male dominated sport, so men fill the meetups before women have a chance. Women are greatly outnumbered as a rule. Please email me if you think this wait-list preference is unfair. Thanks. I appreciate your feedback.

      1 · November 19, 2013

  • Steve L.

    Those of you on the waiting list who have ropes, let me know and I will add you now. Otherwise, hang in there while I inventory ropes.

    November 18, 2013

    • Michael D.

      Or you might consider having them sign up in the GYCO one if it has openings? Just a suggestion :)

      November 18, 2013

  • Ed

    I have ropes and gear.

    November 18, 2013

  • Michael D.

    Steve, I am excited to see you partner with GYCO on this. Have fun :)

    November 18, 2013

  • Steve L.

    Btw, the forecast is showing for a sunny day, but this crag is mostly in the shade so bring warm layers.
