    I got some good climb on and Vikram did a great job organizing the event and setting the climbs. Despite having a relatively small climbing area we had 7 TRs setup along with nice bouldering opportunities. It was great meeting everyone and I'll post a link to my photos here once I'm done with them.

    Hey all I'm coming from SF Haight/castro area and i have room in my car for up to 3 people and gear. Or if theres room in another SF carpool for one more I could squeeze in so I don't have to be that person driving solo. Any takers? So last minute, but just thought I'd throw it out there.
