When: Saturday, November 17, 10:00 AM
Where: (A location for this event hasn't been chosen yet)
Event Description: This saturday we are going to attempt to meet to do some climbing at Elizabeths Furnace. We will only be climbing if the temperature is above 40 with little wind. You can check the meetup page, or call organizer saturday morning to verify that the trip is on.
Everyone will need a harness, shoes, and two carabiners. A helmet is strongly recomended.
EF is located on Fort Valley Rd just outside of front royal.
Coming from DC
Get on Route 66 West toward Front Royal
Take Exit #6 onto route 340 south (Winchester Rd)
Drive south about 1 mile and make a right onto Route 55 (W Strasburg Rd)
Take 55 for about 5 miles, and then turn Left onto Fort Valley Rd. I believe there is a cemetary and general store on corner.
Drive about two miles, you will go past Fish Hatchery Rd and then park at small parking lot on Right. We will meet there.
This drive will take about 1 - 1.5 hours from DC.
I will be leaving from Fairfax, right off 66 and route 50. If anyone wants to meet at my place we can car pool down. Let me know - Jim
