Outdoor Climbing at Carderock on Saturday

Weather is supposed to be great, so let's go outdoor climbing at Carderock!

We currently have 4 Top Rope setups. Jen - 2, Joshua - 1, Luke - 1. We do not need any more setups at this time.  If you want to bring and setup a slackline, go for it!

We are recommending that people setting up arrive closer to 9/9:30.  If you want to learn about setting up top ropes, arrive around that time.  Otherwise, show up closer to 10-10:30.

Bring your climbing gear (harness, belay device, shoes), helmet (optional, but recommended), food and water.  Bring a camera if you wanna take some action shots of you and your friends' stellar performances on the rock face!

You don't need to pay to join, but donations of food, etc to people contributing to setups are always appreciated. 

If you've never been to Carderock, don't let your GPS navigate you to Carderock, MD.  That is the wrong place! View the map here: http://tinyurl.com/3gvvoju

We are in the very last parking lot.  I will hangout in the parking lot from about 10-10:30+ to recruit people.  If you don't have my number, send me a message.  I can't guarantee I'll have cell reception.

If you are running late, walk down the short trail and by the sign turn right.  Go along the path and before you cross a tiny bridge, make a left.  This will take you to the base of the cliffs.  Walk along the path until you find us.  It will eventually dead-end so you can't go too far! :)

In the event of a rain, we'll move this party to Earth Treks, Rockville.

Remember: Climbing is dangerous and climb at your own risk.  We are not responsible for any injuries or accidents that may occur. We are not responsible for your gear.

Please be mindful of the ropes!  Stepping on ropes is a big no-no.

 

Climb on!!!

    Such a beautiful day -- very nice, laid back. Everyone was really friendly and great (as climbers usually are). The climbs were fun, and we had a beautiful spot on the river. Looking forward to the next outing!

    Hey Joshua... take a look for Luke or Jen. They'll be there earlier to setup. I'll show up around 10.

    I'm not sure who will see my post this late at night, but I have never been climbing at Carderock before and definitely will need some guidance in regards to where you all want to me to set up. I hopefully will arrive around 9:30AM. I'll be driving a red Jeep Wrangler. See you all then!

    Just a note, for those of you attending, please do not bring additional people, unless otherwise stated in your RSVP status. I am trying to avoid very large groups at Carderock. Thanks!
