I'll be heading to Echo Cliffs in Malibu for some easy to moderate sport/toprope climbing on Sunday (grade 5.8+ through 5.11-) with my roommate.
Directions to the parking area are here:
We will meet in this parking lot at 10 AM for slacklining and hit the trail at 10:30 AM (show up sometime between 10AM and 10:30AM).
Stuff to bring:
1.) Bring all your gear (you must have AT A MINIMUM harness/climbing shoes)
2.) Bring 2-3 Liters of water
3.) Bring food
4.) Bring a headlamp/flashlight just in case
5.) Bring 1st aid stuff if you have it
SAFETY RULES (mandatory):
1.) Inspect all gear prior to use daily (minimum)
2.) Safety checks prior to every climb
3.) Don't push anyone to climb beyond their comfort zone
4.) Take any safety suggestions given by another climber with grace (they're only looking out for you)
NEW CLIMBERS READ CAREFULLY:
1.) You must be at least a gym climber to join this trip
2.) You must be able to climb 5.9 to join this trip
3.) You must be able to belay to join this trip
4.) The approach is a 30 minute hike
5.) Outdoor climbing is a ton of fun and you should definitely join if you're okay with all of the above
Let me know if you want to carpool from Glendale.
