I will be heading out to Moose Mountain to do a day of leading. I am looking for participants who also are looking for opportunities to lead more and get in a higher volume of leading in a day. The plan would be to climb in the 5.9-10- range. I am happy to belay others on harder routes, or on easier routes, although there are limited options below 5.9 at Moose. All participants should be competent lead belayers and be able to independently lead, clean routes and rappel. 

If I don't know you or haven't climbed with you, please send me a description of your climbing history and the names of a few other people you have climbed with. 

The easiest and fastest way to approach is with a bike on Ings Mine road. Please let me know if you have a bike when you sign up. Please also confirm you have read the list of potential hazards below and signed the online waiver on the ACC national website. 

Moose mountain topos can be found here. 

Required Items to Bring:

Personal climbing gear (helmet mandatory), bike. We will coordinate ropes and draws amongst the group once we have a final participant list.

Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons.
