Description:

I want to go climbing over the Easter long weekend, and I hope you'll come along! The weekend includes Good Friday and Easter Monday, for four full days of sending hard or chilling at the crag - you make the choice. I hope to leave Thursday night and return Monday afternoon. Where we go is weather-dependant, but possible locations (in order of my personal preference) include:

Index, WA - Maybe different weather than Squamish; steep granite. Info. ~3 hour drive(?)

Levenworth, WA - Maybe different weather than Squamish; a wide variety of lengths and difficulty, mostly granite crack. Info. ~4 hour drive.

Smith Rock, OR - Almost certainly better weather than Squamish; a sport climber's paradise! Info. ~8-9 hour drive.

Vantage, WA - Probably better weather than Squamish; mostly single pitch, basalt columns and bolts. Info. ~5 hour drive

This is not an instructional trip. It is simply meant as a tool for a group of VOCers who want to go climbing to organize rides, tents, and adventures in a similar location. You'll need to have some climbing experience (at least Rock 1) and camping experience. If you're relatively new to climbing, this doesn't mean you can't come along - but, you'll have to find someone who is willing to climb with you. I encourage less experienced climbers to try and find mentors for this trip!

Post on the message board to express interest, indicate location preference, sort out logistics, and ask questions! Eventually, I'll start and e-mail faff with those of you who sign up as commited.

It's climbing season! Let's get after it :D
