UPDATE: THERE IS A 50-60% CHANCE OF RAIN IN THE AUSTIN AREA THIS WEEKEND. SOME PEOPLE STILL PLAN ON GOING THIS WEEKEND JUST IN CASE IT IS NICE ENOUGH TO CLIMB. THIS MEETUP WILL BE COPIED AND CREATED AS A NEW MEETUP FOR THE NEXT WEEKEND AS WELL. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR STATUS ON THIS EVENT IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO ATTEND. THANKS!
Hi all, proposing one of these for the first time! The dates have already been discussed with a few people so hopefully these work out.
We are heading to Austin for the weekend to go climbing outdoors on Saturday and Sunday! Most of us are camping at Pace Bend for the weekend. See details below. We could also go in on the Friday night to go out in Austin, if anyone is interested. This has proven a good idea in the past ;)
