Itinerary:
Of course, ski season is still in full swing, but the forecasted warm temperatures for the upcoming weekend would also make for a nice day of early season rock climbing as well. The plan is to drive out to K-Country on Sunday not too early and enjoy a nice day of rock climbing on a nice unpolished south facing slab only a few people know about. This little gem provides about 20 to 25 sport routes in between 15 and 35 m long starting around 5.6 up to about mid- 5.10s. This is your chance to get away from the snow and ice business for a day and get your foot technique ready for the upcoming rock season after all the plastic pulling over the winter. The approach will be mostly flat, should be pretty much snow free and is about 35 to 45 min long. You should be at least able to give me a save belay, but there is no need to lead unless you want to. If you have a rope/anchor/gear to lead or set up a top- rope, please include that information in the comments section when you sign up. Please also email a brief climbing resume (just a few lines) if we haven't climbed together before. Carpool time, gear to bring etc. will be finalized once participants are selected.
