We will leave Canoe meadows about 8:30am and head to Wasootch for a day of cragging and practice.  We can follow the interests of the group.  There's spots to practice anchor building, we can play with multi-pitch skills, leading/mock leading, and of course set up some ropes to climb.  We will set up ropes in the 5.6 range, but if anyone on the trip wants to lead more difficult routes we can set those up too.  We'll probably head to D slab for a good part of the day and set up multiple ropes there.  

Beginners are welcome.  It would be great if you have belay skills, but even if you don't, we can belay you!  

Required Items to Bring:

Harness, climbing helmet (a must at Wasootch for rockfall hazard), belay device (some form of assisted brake is strongly preferred, it can be something like a juul device or more like a gri gri), locking biner, belay gloves.

Recommended Items to Bring:

Anything you want to be comfortable at the crag for the day.  A packable chair, hammock, sunscreen, rope friendly bug spray, food and water, etc.  If you want to practice anchor building, lead climbing, multi-pitching etc. bring whatever you need for that (slings, 7mm cord, draws, biners, anchor package).
