Trad Rock Climbing @ AAC Fest: ( Saturday ) Climbing Teams

Trad Rock Climbing @ Americian Alpine Club "AAC" Climbing Fest

Saturday -- Climbing Only!!!!!!

RSVP here to be on a roped team if your not in a clinic....



The Team's:    Everyone Gets Wait Listed..!

As always the size of the Meetup is based on how many people the area can handle & the number of lead climbers who RSVP for the Meetup....!

For each lead climber we pair you up with one experienced belayer and then we can add one newbie climber/Follower.

Its always the understanding that the "Newbie/Follower" as at a minimum has climbed indoors and has knowledge of the climbing knots and all the gear required & that the Belayer is willing to show that Newbie the how too clean gear and escape belays and keep a eye out for their lack of knowledge.

Sign up...  First to RSVP is the first to fill a opening based on experience needed.

Don't forget no helmet no climbing!!! Period...

Once on top. Repelling the route is not a best option.. Always best to walk down the paved road from the top of the cliff.

    Can't seem to find anyone. I'm at the ledge.

    Hi Jay. I am heading the campground to be there for 8 am. I am going to go to the demo area and see what is happening as I have signed up for a clinic and not sure what they will do now due to this wet stuf! My phone is dying but my friend has hers. Her number is 781.267.1810. Hopefully we can connect today and salvage something out of this rain. Pam

  • Jay B.

    Freakin rain is just started to roll through again we where drying out nice last night with windy conditions. We will do what we can to salvage the day folks.

    September 14, 2013

  • Frank Nathan M.

    I'm running late, but I will be there.

    September 14, 2013

  • Frank Nathan M.

    I'm leaving from Bangor tomorrow morning, so I'll be there right around start time.

    Remember, Bring a folding chair.. I am sure there is a campfire or two. Tent, Sleeping pad, Sleeping bag, and pillow. Some toiletries with TP might be a really good idea. Couple gallons of water and snacks. I think everything else with some "cash" will be easy to get there is a stores and eating places walking distance away.

    As a base time line Breakfast is at 7am Climbing is 9am and everyone wants to be back to the Campground for the AAC fun by 4pm.. so that means start getting off the mountain at 3pm.. its sounds early but your night will be packed with other kinds of fun..
    Your also playing with Jay.. so, don't forget the two most important things a good attitude and a " Headlamp"...!!!!

    Here is the FYI!
    I will be grabbing camping spot early on Friday morning I hope and will posted here once I have with maybe a site number?..
    I will definitely have a Meetup Sign posted on a stick in front of our tent space we picked.. So, look for the Meetup Logo...
    That will be the absolute meeting spot for our group members.. Others rolling in & not camping might be better to meet at cliff if running late.. On the spread sheet for teams that spot will also be posted as well as here. The climbing spots for Sat likely will not get posted till Friday night.. Just a FYI I have to find them first.. North Conway is not known for its top roping.. not why I go there at least. If your lost? call my cell #[masked] if its the middle of the day I might be busy climbing will get back to you when I can but 1st thing in the morning or after 3pm should not be any problems contacting me or the other leaders listed. I hope that helps in answering all the questions...?

    I'm notoriously bad at finding people at these meet ups : ). Both campground & AAC said no groups are being put together at the campsite - it's an open field and grab a spot. Can we try to meet at a vendor booth or somewhere Frj night at, say 7:30 p.m., to put faces with names? I'd hate to never find you Sat a.m.for climbing.

    Hey Jay, thought I hit no on my RSVP. I won't be available at all this weekend--I originally thought I would be on Sunday. Hopefully I'll be able to make it out before the rock season ends, but I can't wait to climb some ice this winter if I can't.

    September 11, 2013

    • Jay B.
