As the forecast for Sunday looks great, let's have a crag day at Grassi! The plan is to meet at the climbers parking area by Whiteman's Pond (see inset map below) at 10:00 AM and climb until around 5:00 PM. As I'll be out camping Saturday night, please figure out carpooling amongst each other.

The main areas I plan to be at are the walls by the upper lake (i.e. Gardener's, Meathooks, and Graceland). I'm more than happy to set a couple topropes up but if you're comfortable leading and building anchors, that would be ideal.

Currently, I have three club ropes and one anchor so if you could bring your own gear to ensure we have enough, that would be fantastic.

Friendly reminder that helmets are mandatory for both climbing and belaying. Please don't forget to bring one!

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch with me via email (vinzafy@gmail.com) or phone (403)561- 0988.
Required Items to Bring:
Climbing shoes, helmet, harness, belay device, snacks, water

Recommended Items to Bring:
Personal gear (i.e. ropes, anchors, and draws), enthusiasm to ward off rain, and oreos for cragging
