Evening Flatirons this week?

Need a climbing partner? Trying to form a hiking group for an outing?

Tues & Wed are my preferred days at present. Had fun this week, and looking forward to future evenings!

Brian,

Anything planned for this weekend? I need to get out and climb something, but have to stay somewhat local (Flatirons, Eldo, BC). Also, Tuesdays are good for me for weeknight evening climbs.

Cheers!
Sam

Anyone want to chase the sun this week? I can definitely do Tuesday or Friday, possibly Wednesday.

I'm open Tuesday afternoon Sam. (along with tomorrow afternoon) We can practice our rappelling for Beirstadt?

I could do Tues/Wed. It would be nice to get out with you again!

Heather - If I'm free I'd be happy to do Chase the Sun. Solo or roped? I've done both and it's fun either way. Also, it rocks to do it right after doing the First.

Looks like I'm free tomorrow. Anybody else looking for something to do in the morning?

Otina - it would be awesome to get out again!

Brian - I've not done the route yet so was planning to do it roped.....I've learned my lesson doing new FI routes sans rope [-X

Let's plan to meet up Tuesday after work. Can you do Tuesday, Brian?

I'd love to do any of these evenings. Roped for me; I've only done the first once.

Tuesday is great and I can be there whenever. If anybody wants to meet earlier in the day we could do something else too. Who's in for sure? It get's a bit rough being on a team larger than 3.



On a side note, another good evening Flaitron jaunt yesterday with Sam and Brian! Got up the seldom-visited Will B high on Green Mtn.

I'd be up for any evening except Tuesday, but I can't really get out until 6:30-7.

I'm still in for Tuesday. Baring anything at work, I should be able to get to Chat by 4:00.
