Come whenever you get off work, leave whenever you like. Weather should be sunny and in the 60s. The plan is to be on the West side of the North and South Gateway Rock climbing areas. See you there!

I might be able to buzz over to the Garden at 3pm. What route(s) did you have in mind?


All, we're meeting in the North Lot at 3:00 pm. The North Lot is the largest, main lot, at the northern-most end of the counterclockwise one-way loop.

If you come after 3pm, find the concrete walkway which exits the lot at the south end. Head south on the walkway; North Gateway Rock will be to your right (west.) You then come to the "gateway" area - a wide pass between the North and South Gateway rocks. The Twin Spires is here, between N and S Gateway. We may be on White Spire or Red Twin, or on the west side of S Gateway, or the west side of N Gateway.

Possible routes include the first pitch of West Point Crack (5.7,) Potholes (5.7ish,) Cowboy Boot Crack (5.6, with 5.8 and 5.10 TR options) or Finger Ramp (5.7 with a 5.9/5.10 TR option.)


Beginners definitely welcome!

I'd like to get an idea of how many are planning to show up for climbing tomorrow.
If you could, please RSVP to this thread.

Thanks!

I'm about 50/50 right now. Depends on how the morning plays out.

I know that doesn't help too much, but I hope it helps man.

Not for climbing - but for the Happy Hour aftermath (98% sure).

It was cool getting in some climbing with you and Emma before the happy hour too.

Thanks again for putting this together Emma. It ened up quite a few people. Good times, for sure. And thanks to Cookiehiker for bringing the amazing cookies.

Didn't see you there to back up those tough words, Nick.

Good to meet everyone! The way Mandy drives, that event was only 45 minutes away from my home (essentially Sports Authority Field at Mile High). I will attend the 809-- HHs more often!

Had a great time also. We should do more of these in the future.
