Gamechanger: Going to Vantage instead. Because, why not! (see thread).

Thanksgiving long weekend gives us the opportunity to have an extra day a bit further afield than we can get for most weekends. So let's start the migration of VOCers to other fall climbing locations.

Tentatively, we'll plan for Smith Rock in Oregon, since it can get very busy and Americans don't get the long weekend (yay! Smith can be very busy). Alternatives include Vantage, Leavenworth, Skaha, or beautiful Squamish. This will be determined depending on weather before the pretrip meeting. To get most places efficiently, drivers will probably want to leave on Friday.

As with other climbing trips, this isn't instructional. We'll just try to make sure everyone gets a ride down, but you'll need to have a partner and the skills to climb safely. Depending where we go, top roping areas may be very limited.
