Itinerary:
We'll be climbing Plutonian Shores on Raven Crag (above Cave and Basin). There is a 30-45 min approach, 7 pitches of 5.7-5.9 sport climbing bolted anchors, and a walk-off descent. Participants must be competent at belaying a leader. While not required to lead, participants should be able to comfortably climb up to 5.9 outdoors and be on the move for 4-6 hours. A mix of relative beginners and more experienced participants are welcome to join. Please send a description of your experience level & abilities including relevant climbs you have been on in the past. Preference will be given to members who would be unable to lead this climb on their own. We will not be moving people on to the trip until June. The topo for the route is at the following link:

Required Items to Bring:
Climbing gear (can discuss in detail with selected participants), and a backpack you are comfortable climbing with. We won't be returning to the start of the climb, so everything you bring is coming up & over with us - choose wisely!
