Description:

Hi you crazy climbing people,

after seeing some pictures of climbing in Vantage, WA, my fingers are itching with anticipation to climb those rocks! Let's go down there the weekend May 13-15 and enjoy this beautiful scenery!

The drive is about 5h, we should leave on Friday and come back late on Sunday, so we can climb Saturday and Sunday. We'll do car camping next to the climbs, which is free allthough a parking permit is required (12$ per car, valid for one year - maybe someone already has it). Don't forget a passport to get into the US.

This is not an instructional trip, you should have some climbing experience and be familiar with top rope belaying. But as Son of Rock is the weekend before, it will be a good chance to practice your new skills! For climbing there you need to lead to set up top ropes, it's not possible to hike to the top and put up an anchor without climbing. But once this is done, you can of course top rope. I just want to make you aware of this fact, it's no requirement to know how to lead. There are also some easier climbs (5.6, 5.7), so climbers of all levels are welcome!
