Rock Climging is a dangerous sport! To accomodate everyone in the group, we've set this event up so that you can make whatever you want out of it. You can take a beginner hike and stay on the paths surrounding the boulders, do some moderate walk ups in the cracks and crags, or go full blown rock climbing on level 5.9 areas.
We'll assess your skill level and break up into smaller groups at 5:30. Please be on time. Then regroup shortly after 8pm near boulder 1. (see map below)
Parking on Topanga is free. GET THERE EARLY!!! We are combining with one other rock climbing group, so want to make sure the whole group moves as a unit as we move from boulder to boulder.
- rock climbing shoes if you have them
- your harness (belay/top rope)
- helmet is a good idea
- at least a liter of water
- some cash because we'll probably go to a cantina or local restaurant after for dinner
How to find us: Use the map below... starting at the side closest to Topanga (bottom left corner of the map), then moving East to B1 (bottom right corner of the map) and Turlock boulders. Given the size of the group, we may split off and do a rappel down Hot Tuna or Roof Rock.
Most likely, I'll be wearing something really bright and crazy like a Red Boston Red Sox Shirt, or a Lime Green shirt for easy visibility.
Due to the structure, cracks, crags and remoteness, I don't have cell phone reception.
Hence the reason why you want to GET THERE EARLY! lol.
NOTE*** If you come late and don't see anyone... like you're arrive after 6:30, I would suggest tracing our steps... boulder 1, B1, then head towards Nabisco and/or Hot Tuna. Most likely, you should see someone at some point. 7:56 or so is when the sunsets, and that's about the time we'll begin breaking down the toprope set ups. Worse case, go back to 1 as I'm sure that will be the re-grouping point. Got it?
