That should work fine for me!

I just realized we are a week ahead of where I thought we were - next week is the 4th of July! I will be heading out on Wednesday to take my wife up Sunlight, Windom and Eolus. Please let us know if you can do another of these, in the future.

Brian, where were you thinking? Last time I did this with you it was in Gregory Canyon, but most of that is closed off for Raptor Love Making season I believe.

Also, I have a rack I can bring consisting of full set cams (doubles of most sizes), some hexes, nuts and larger tri cams as well. If it would help for me to bring it all just let me know!

Brian,
I'm also interested, but can't really say when a good time would be for me (next Wednesday is out). So I hope to join the next one if you get one established.

Lets plan on Wednesday maybe meeting at 4:30 somewhere. I know a spot up Boulder Canyon but am happy to be wherever. As long as there are cracks to build anchors and a short wall wed be set.

BC works for me. I know there is a spot near the top of the Dome where I have done rescue training with the CMC/RMR, and there are a good amount of cracks up there as well if I remember correctly. Plus you can walk up there pretty quickly. But if you have a spot in mind that you know will work that is A-OK with me.
