Robinson Park in Sandstone, MN with Jake on 4/22

Meetup Climber, Jake, is heading to Sandstone this Sunday.  Sandstone offers sport climbing next to the Kettle River.  Many of the anchors can be reached by a short hike and set up as top ropes for climbers that don't lead (please use your own gear on the anchors and don't hang your ropes from the rap anchors provided unless rappelling).  RSVP for this event here.  Read about Sandstone climbing on Mountain Project here.

VE Minneapolis - Comp Setting 4/19 & 4/20

This Thursday and Friday, route setters will be stripping walls and setting new routes for the Jug-or-Not comp on Saturday, 4/21.  If you are a regular Thursday night climber, you may want to consider heading to St Paul this week instead of Minneapolis!

VE Minneapolis - Thursday Night Host

Dr. Chris Hanson is stepping down as the Thursday Open Climb Event Host after many months of service to the Meetup Group.  At this time, we will not have a designated host at VEM on Thursdays.  If you would like to become the host, please email me and we can discuss it.  Until a new host is in place, please use the message board on Thursday night event pages to coordinate meeting up with one another.
