Sugarloaf Saturday

Outdoor climbing - this Saturday! Sugarloaf Mountain, near Fredrick MD, is one of the nicest local crags. We'll be top-roping, though I have a bit of trad gear to play with too. We'll meet at the west view overlook - after you enter the park and drive up the mountain, it's the second parking area. See the map at the bottom of
this pdf. Outdoor beginners welcome! You don't need outdoor experience, but you should know how to belay, and have your own harness and shoes. Stuff to bring:

  • Personal climbing gear (harness, shoes, etc - helmet optional)

  • Lunch, snacks, water

  • Any other gear you have - the more ropes we have, the more people we can include.

Weather: The current forecast is for mid-50s and sunny, which is nice climbing weather. If it's raining, or very cold, we'll relocate to EarthTreks Rockville. Meetup stuff: Right now I have one climbing rope, so I've set the attendee limit to 5. As we get more people with ropes, I'll raise the limit. 3-4 people per rope works well in my experience.

    I might be able to borrow a buddy's rope for sat, I'll see if I can get it.

    Wow, that filled up fast. Anyone with a climbing rope - please RSVP "No" with a note, and I'll change it to "Yes".
