The Climbing: The 5.6 to 5.10 range is roughly what we'll be aiming at (there's plenty of diversity there for everyone's skill level). Top rope or lead. Beginners, intermediate, advanced, all are welcome whether you've been outdoors before or not. Come for the whole weekend or just for one of the days.
Getting there: Take I-90, jump off at Exit 143. Take the first left onto Silica Rd SW and then it's the first left onto Vantage Road (there's a home and a bunch of trees on the corner).
The Plan: We'll be getting there around 10am and will play at the Feathers for a bit to give everyone time to get there. If all is going well, a trip to Sunshine Wall might be in order. (Be advised, you need a Discover Pass in order to park at Vantage).
The Evening: Campfires, cooking, chilling, conversing (maybe some night climbing, bring a headlamp if so).
The Plan: For the early risers, a warm up at the Feathers if you fancy it and then a hike to Sunshine Wall or maybe Riverview Columns or Tomato Wall where we'll spend the rest of the day.
I'll email all the rsvp-ers nearer the date and we can trade numbers to ensure late arrivals or lostee's (it happens) can locate us or catch up or get directions (if I don't reply immediately give it a little while, I might be climbing, belaying someone, or just out of breath from hiking)
Basically when you see the champagne colored Toyota Corola with the 'LA County Coroner' sticker you're in the right place. At the crags look for the 'Union Jack' painted climbing helmet.
