Shelf Road week end

Let's spend a week end clipping some bolts and pulling down on some fine limestone at Shelf Road before it gets too hot there. If anyone is motivated maybe they could get there on Friday to grab a camp spot.

    A small rain storm blew in on Sat afternoon which was the only mar on the trip. For Shelf, it was pretty quiet. We got a camp site right away.

    Hello Group,
    The weather looks like it's improving for the week end. I'm coming down Sat morning with 2 more folks. Here is a suggestion for meeting up.
    We could have some meeting times at the bathroom at the Sand Gulch campground. It's a central location with lots of crags within walking distance. We could try and meet there at 1pm and 7 pm. If someone gets a campsite maybe they can tape a note to the bathroom letting folks know where the site is.
    Those that are coming...please let me know your thoughts.

      I just found out there is a bulleten board there. So we can leave messages on the board. What a concept!!

      I would like to carpool if you have a spot (from Boulder). You can text me at[masked]-0435. I have ropes and a sport/trad rack.

    I may join you, for the day on Saturday, post what cliff you will climb at,

    FYI, 2 weeks ago, the Denver group was there, and all the campsite were taken,

    Hi Carol, it's been a long time, we climbed the Naked edge, together on a CMC climb,

    • Carol K.

      How could I forget climbing the first 2 pitches of the edge as a CMC climb!!

    I will bring all my gear, including rope and draws, but I don't have any other protection. Never been to shelf road, but this weekend sounds great!

    I'll probably be there with a partner on Sunday; would like to meet some of you guys. Should we just find you at the Bank campground? If you know what area you'll be climbing at, please post and we'll try to find you. I'm down for anything.

    What area is everyone thinking?

    May 6, 2013

    • Carol K.

      Jim, as far as the RCCS joining us that's fine with me if you want to organize. But there may be restrictions on how many per camp site and if the group gets really large it may be difficult to all go to the same crag.

      Thanks, Carol. One of the RCCS members wanted to put it on RCCS and do a combined event on Saturday but he's bailing due to weather.

    Hello Group,
    It looks like a few questions are coming up. Nick, not sure how late folks will stay but it's not hard to get a work out at Shelf even if you leave a bit early. Lots of bolted routes all next to eachother. Jim, I don't know what others are thinking but it seems like a variety of factors determine which wall to go to including weather, climbing grades, and size of the group.
    Joe, My room mate and I are thinking about going earlier on Friday to see if we can get a camp sight. Shelf will be super crowded. Will post again by Wednesday to firm up plans. A lot is weather dependent.

    I'm a pretty new climber, but I'm taking every opportunity to get better. Would you guys suggest this area for a beginner? I went outdoor climbing for the first time a week ago and I was able to complete a 5.9+.

    May 3, 2013

    • Nicole L.

      There are lots of different grades at Shelf...great for a beginner :)

      Great! I'm in.
