Castle Rock


Rock climbing trip to the nice and usually dry rock of north Washington state. This trip is not instructional (unless you find someone that would be willing to), and people should have some rock climbing experience, as well as access to the necessary gear. Ideally we'll organize everything through the web, so please put your name down if keen to come, and if you put your name on a car email the driver. Depending on the weather we can climb on Leavenworth or on Vantage, as they're about one hour away from each other.
