This trip is for people who have just started trad leading, and would like to stretch their legs on a multipitch, but with solid backup and coaching along the way. We'll head to Mother's day buttress (5.6 8 pitch trad route with bolted anchors & cruxes), where the two participants will lead the entire climb. I have climbed this route multiple times, and so can offer coaching on gear, double rope management, route finding, etc. I'll also be there as a backup and can take over leading if needed.

If you are interested to come on this climb, please send me a note at susan.twitchell(at) describing your climbing experience and trad gear placement training. Participants should have already received instruction in the correct placement of trad gear, and have lead at least some rock climbs in the past (even just a few low difficulty single pitch trad or multi-pitch sport are fine), and be comfortable leading at least 5.7 sport.

Required Items to Bring:
Trad rack (or whatever gear you have), helmet, harness, personal anchor, belay device, climbing shoes, anchor materials/backpack (the route is a walkoff, so everything you bring is coming up & over with us, choose carefully!).

This climbing event is inspired by the Women's Mentoring Group, but participants of any gender are welcome!

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
